5 Oldest Bars in NYC

Many claim to have the oldest bar in New York City, but here is what I think are definitively the 5 oldest still operating in town. PJ Clarke’s, Bridge Cafe (R.I.P.), Fraunces Tavern, Pete’s Tavern, & McSorley’s are undeniably ancient watering holes where you can literally sit and drink in the history of New York. Most of these places are no nonsense, old school joints that are either completely haunted, or surprisingly, have many of their most beloved customers buried somewhere behind the bar. Really, you wouldn’t believe how many people are buried in mugs behind the bar at these joints.

Anyway, come throw one back with me and a few of my brave friends as we did a little informal tour of the five oldest bars in NYC for our friends over at Get Lost Magazine.

And as if I have to ask, would love to hear what you all think are the oldest places, maybe the Ear Inn, Old Towne or Landmark … we’re gearing up for Part II so let me know where we should go get blotto.
