McSorley's Old Ale House has been a gathering place, a watering hole, the subject of art and literature and even a supreme court controversy. Established in 1854 - McSorley's can boast of being New York City's oldest continuously operated saloon.
Huge selection of beers.
Light or dark are your only options. Both are delicious, each order comes in two smaller glasses!
Light or dark. Don't get cute with the waiters... they'll put you in your place.
Ask for "1 dark and 1 light"
Fantastic beer selection. They've got so many IPAs!
Oldest pub of NYC: only two kind of beers.
A must place to visit on any trip to the city.
What a pub should be like
What it says on the tin - a pub serving only two types of beer at crazy low prices
Real champions get three rounds of dark and finish the cheese plate
Just must visit! This place has history and good beer.
Delightful ambience, the oldest Irish ale house in NY
Authentic and filled with character. Dark or lite can't go wrong with their ale. Slainte!
Come for the historical smell!
Timeless classic. Never out of style, whether for a pre-dinner beer or post-dinner group drinks. McSorleys always goes. Bring cash.
old school pub! great atmosphere
Loved it. Old school. Dark or light ale. Not a place for hipsters but for everyone. Kind staff. Prepare to wait. If you are fussy about which table-which corner etc then it's not for you.
Went here on a Friday night, the place was packed!! No room for us. Loud people and no music, so we went to another place. But the people inside looked happy
Come for a fun classic bar night! Choose light or dark beer. Have a snack. Pay in cash.
Ladies, there's no mirror in the bathroom. Bring your own ;-)
One of my favorite bars in NY. Crazy fast service, 2 beers served at a time and looks like an ale house from the 1800s
On this day in 2015, David Villa signed a soccer ball for McSorley's
Great place to grab a beer and soak up the historic charm
Awesome place, I always take people from out of town here and they all enjoy it. Only have beer- "light or dark". Snacks are simple but good, personally a fan of the cheese & crackers.
Love this place. Servers will be rude, and you'll like it. 2 kinds of beers-- light or dark. Get the dark, and go thirsty-- if you don't want a refill, you're expected to leave
Beer is best at mcsorleys
Ya gotta go along if ya wanna get along......
Come here to drink uninteresting beer among hoardes of fratty, uninteresting people.
Great place to take parents. My parents. My dad. Who likes history. And beer.
So packed. Great bar for a Tuesday night...
Light & dark. That's all. French fries are a surprise and the atmosphere is perfect. The oldest bar in NYC and still the best.
One of the oldest bars in NYC. This place is full of history. Remember, dark beer or light beer.

Great Irish Pub 🍀
Super cool historic bar, beer (light or dark are the options) is pretty good and cheap for the city
A great old institution of bigotry. Sawdust on the floor, ancient urinals, double the beer you'd expect and you're sure to meet someone from out of town. Be renewed with the old.
Not too bad nice selection
I've never been to this place when it wasn't completely packed.
3 bartenders with 60 years experience between them.
Make sure to look up at the chandeliers to see decades-old wishbones with attendant dust collection.
Great bar with a lot of character and history. They have a light and a dark beer which are both pretty good
Light beer and dark beer. Have to stop in for a couple... Then leave to explore the streets.
Dark beer is excellent
Love this place! Prepare for crowds & light pushing from busy staff if you're in their way. It's all in good fun! Cheap beer & great atmosphere
Outta towner old beers.🍻
They said it was the oldest ale house in New York and I could believe them. They offer two ales, light or dark only, but the best way is to get them half and half. We spent New Years there. Awesome.
Oldest ale house in new york! Only options for beer are light and dark.
