McSorley's Old Ale House

"Two players. Two sides. One is light, one is dark." This John Locke quote (the LOST John Locke not the seventeenth-century philosopher) seems apt when speaking about McSorley's Old Ale House. They serve up only two options--light beer and dark beer.  

Located at 15 East 7th Street, this New York City establishment has been around since 1854. Everything is old school in this bar. From the sawdust on the floor to the inch-thick coating of dust on the light fixtures hanging from the ceiling, McSorley's brims with history.

If you're looking for a good place to throw back a couple of beers and soak up some New York City history, McSorley's is the place to be.
