A bar and a pub are both places where people get together to drink alcoholic beverages and engage in revelry. We can't deny that revelry is pretty fantastic. Pubs in particular often have tradition behind their walls, as they were built as community gathering points in British villages. Community gatherings plus beer are a time tested formula, in America as much as across the pond.
Even though New York has upwards of 8.5 million people, the comradery of a pub environment is much appreciated. Plus, what kind of complaint could you have for a place that serves hefty pints, savory pub grub, and a constant dose of hospitality? We choose only the best pubs in New York to give you a feel for how good these places can be. Enjoy a glass of your favorite ale, a plate of fish and chips, and all the tall tales you can bear. Eat amongst some authentic monastery decor at the Wicked Monk and quench your Catholic guilt with pitches of quality beer or cider.
Although McSorley's Old Ale House is the oldest Irish tavern in New York City, all of our 10 Best pubs easily deliver the feel-good experience you're craving. Bottoms up.
