Head to the Old Town Bar, a favourite spot for literary drinkers since Prohibition. It once operated as a speakeasy, dodging the strict licensing laws to deal direct with bootleggers. Toast Abe Lincoln, John Lennon, or some less savoury characters at McSorley's Old Ale House. Nowadays they’re a friendly bunch, but this was once a hangout for some rough and ready barroom brawlers. Don’t forget their golden rule: ‘Be good or be gone’! Hear wild stories of law makers, law breakers, prohibition-era gangsters and molls, and discover the weird and wonderful tale of the circus animals kept in a dive bar backroom. Wander through iconic movie sets, share a table with the ghosts of famous politicians, and enjoy New York’s legendary ambiance and service. Discover why they call New York the city that never sleeps when you revel in the spirit of these timeless taverns.
