Pubs: An old, emerald standby with close to 150 years under its belt, this Irish bar offers only two distinct libations: McSorley's Light and McSorley's Dark. Try one of each for true homebrew diversification (two glasses are cheaper than the price of one in most New York pubs). There are old newspapers on the walls (remember those?), sawdust on the floor and hot mustard to go with your meal. 1860's paraphernalia is refreshing in a culture that calls songs from the early 2000s "old school." A younger, primarily male crowd regularly darkens the doors of this tried but true neighborhood haunt.
