McSorley's Old Ale House
Located in the East Village, McSorley’s is considered the oldest ‘Irish’ pub in NYC and was established in 1854. The walls are covered in memorabilia, all of which has been there since the early 20th century. Despite only allowing women onto the premises since the 1970s, this traditional ale house remains a beloved community gem. No need to worry about overwhelming choices — here, you can only choose between dark and light ale. The happy hour includes two beers for $5.
