Dark or Light?
Doesn’t matter what, I always make a trip to my favourite bar, McSorley’s on East 7th. The oldest tavern in New York boasts only 2 delicious ales: dark and light. The way you talk to the staff can get you a seat fast.
It’s not for everyone since it has become busier and busier in the last few years. But if you can ignore a few loud jocks, it’s a great place to talk to unpretentious, normal New Yorkers.
