#69 McSorley's Old Ale House (New York, New York)

This legendary Irish pub in New York City’s East Village is also the city’s oldest continuously operating bar. And you need but look around at the dust-caked chandeliers, sawdust on the floor, and walls stacked with memories to believe McSorley’s Old Ale House hasn’t changed much since 1854 — though it did abandon its men-only policy in 1970. Drinkers are crammed into the cozy bar, seated anywhere the bar staff can find space, forcing patrons to become fast friends. There are only two beer choices — dark or light — served until the wee hours of the morning, but the New York pub is still one of the best Irish pubs in the country. (Ruwan J./Yelp)
