    McSorley's Ale House: Felt like a sardine in a tin at friday night!

    by Turska Written Jun 24, 2014

    We talked every day, how we should visit the place, but the days just went so fast, and before we knew, it was allready friday, and our last night. Even if it wasn´t so late (around 19 o´clock I think) the place was so full, I felt terrible! I don´t understand how did they let us in. The man at the door just pushed us in. When we found a little more place to stand (no hope for sitting down) at the back of the place, they came to say you can´t stand at the back. Oh my.. The place looks lovely, and they had good own beer (we only tried the dark one), but it is so full at weekend nights, that I really suggest you to visit some other day if possible. And maybe also earlier on the day.
    Too bad, wouldn have wanted to stay longer, but it was not possible.
    The prices were not expensive.

  • Mc Sorley's: Long live Mc Sorley's!

    by Jean-Roch Written Oct 15, 2007

    This was such an amazing moment with my two pals at Mc Sorley's, I remember drinking that beer long long ago back in the time when America was just starting out as a free nation.

    I really enjoyed that moment, and this is definitely some place to visit in New York. I'll do that trip again from France one of these days, just to sip another beer at Mc Sorley's!

    McSorley's Ale House: old pub for NYC

    by paddymc09 Written Jul 12, 2005

    not much to eat here, but this place is kinda crazy! always packed when open with a nice mixed croud of people. only two beers on tap lite & dark.
    go with the lite, you get like 10 8oz beers for like $1.50 each.

    Dress Code: none at all!!

    McSorley's Ale House: Just Beer

    by TRimer Written Sep 7, 2002

    This is a New York city landmark. They don't serve commercial beer or hard alcohol, only McSorley's own ale. Mugs of house-brand ale are served in pairs (like Twinkies) -- one light, one dark (with your eyes closed, they taste identical).

    McSorley's Ale House: East Village Landmark Tavern

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This ale house serves beer and ale pretty much just like it did when it opened in 1854! A neat spot to visit and absorb the atmosphere of a vintage NYC Irish tavern.

    McSorleys: Nutty Irish Pub

    by sbassin Written Nov 21, 2002

    Beer here is served in 8 oz mugs, so most people have two or three in their hands at one time. Supposedly one of the oldest, if not THE oldest Irish pub in New York City.

    Dress Code: Casual.
