great place with "real" atmospher May 29, 2011
Words cannot express how much I love this place. Simple. Nostalgic. Full of history. You either get lite or dark beers served up two at a time for 5 bucks. Pretty cheap for NYC. Don't go here if you are looking for martini's or snob drinks. This is a beer chugging old time ...

Great Beer, Cool People & History for days... Dec 12, 2008
If you are making a stop in NYC this is a must for anyone of legal drinking age who doesn't mind sitting around with strangers. My first time there was June 2008 I had the time of my life. The atmosphere is great. The beer is strong. If you want to kick a few back, meet friendly strangers & get top notch service by all means McSorley's is a must.

Not to mention the history of the place. This is one of the oldest consecutively running bars in NYC. It has been around since 1854. I think they still have the original tables there. Not sure they just look like it but that's what makes this place great.

A word of advice before you go. They do not serve liquor. Your choices are light or dark that's it. =) I have had them both and must say they are both great. They bring them two at a time so don't be surprised when the super capable not always friendly but sarcastic in a good way server comes back with a crap load of beers for you.
The table =)

Go for it! Last time I was there (1987?), they were still grousing about permitting women to sad.

They have saw dust on the floor. I haven't seen anyone do a cascade but I will have to try it next time I go. LOL I will take photos if it does happen. This is my new favorite NY bar for sure.

Haven't been there since the 80' they still have a dirt floor? They used to make you buy five at a time, lol --- either light or dark. Does anyone still attempt a 'cascade' there? (this was consuming five beers in a row by pouring one glass atop the next)atop another
