We visited on a Saturday and had to queue to get in. The place was rammed and we squeezed our way to the bar. The choice was light or dark beer in tiny glasses. That was it. Nothing else lol. The atmosphere was great though...More

One member of staff from Tipperary was very helpful and nice,but one other was very rude and ignorant and hostile forcing us to leave leaving drinks unfinished. We were on holiday from Ireland ,this marred what had been a nice evening.

I always drop by McSorley´s when I´m visiting New York. This is a genuine old pub and it does not look like it has changed much since the opening back in 1800- something. The beer tastes great and instead of taking time to choose between...More

I visited in college in the 80s and revisited with my husband. It is an amazing place. VERY BUSY ALL THE TIME. Beer is served in pairs. This place IS history.

Hi. Apologies but not sure, there was certainly nobody under 21 when I visited this bar, not that I will be going there again. Perhaps try checking their website.

Looking for more than cheese crackers and liverwurst go elsewhere. Otherwise have at it till they close at midnight. Drink here then go to Katz Deli just four blocks away. Don’t plan on eating here
