I like the Lomo effect...are those guys having an argument or did they just step outside to have a smoke?

Like the barrels, too...I'll be they are to sit on while smoking. There could be a big sign: Don't sit unless smoking!

Wow, it's weird to think that people were getting drunk there before the civil war.

When I come to NYC, we're going here too KM!!! The list of bars seems to be getting pretty large. WE might need a diner or two to sober us up! HA

With Irish pubs being so ubiquitous today, it's great to see such an old, authentic one.

Now that has character!

I had been wanting to see a photo of this bar! Thanks for showing it. This shot has a great deal of feeling in it.

Very cool bar! Hubbie and I went there a few years ago - they only serve beer - no soda, it's either beer or water. And from what I remember, when you order a beer , they bring you 2! Going inside is like sitting in the Time Machine and watching time go by...if you have the chance, it's a must visit!

A provable lineage, unlike other pretenders to history.

Truly a classic bar.

Good to know that "ale is well" at McSorley's!

Steffe said...

A glass of Guinness please.

Brooks said...

No Guinness at McSorley's! Just their own ale, which comes in light and dark. That's it. As Dottie Jo says, an order consists of two small glasses, so you can try one of each (or lights only / darks only).

Great place, and the best time to go is mid-afternoon on a weekday. After work or on weekends the bar is packed tighter than a sardine can.
