1. Drink History at McSorley’s Old Ale House


Established in 1854, McSorley’s Old Ale House is the longest continuously opened saloon in New York City including  Abe Lincoln among it’s guests. Pop on in and check the eclectic decorations and enjoy a mug of one of their two historic beers on tap, simply referred to as light or dark.

2. Cheap Beers on the Staten Island Ferry


New York is infamous for its expensive drinks but we recommend a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. Of course all ages can ride the Ferry but in addition to the scenery (and the fact that you’re on a boat in the city), the 21+ crowd can enjoy dirt cheap beers for only $3.75. ‘Nough said.


3. Let Loose at Lucky Cheng’s


New York is the home of some of the best “alternative” entertainment and Lucky Cheng’s drag bar is its darling. While it might seem a bit racy, it’s a bustling tourist attraction that rivals the statue of liberty and even the most uptight individual is sure to let loose.

4. Speak Easy at Chumley’s


Speaking of Mad Men, Chumley’s is a historic pub in the West Village that was formerly a speakeasy during prohibition but is now frequently part of the set for TV’s Mad Men. Even if it is perfectly legal to drink there in the 2000s, you can at least feel like you’re a 1920s gangster!


5. Standard Hotel Beer Garden

Everyone likes to people watch but if you walk to the High-line Ballroom and watch the unsuspecting people in the Standard Hotel Beer Garden through the floor to ceiling windows, it’s top-notch entertainment.
