It is a bit grotty and the interior could use some attention, but it is still a literary must see in the city and it’s at the heart of a great neighbourhood with lots of other bars and restaurants steps away. Good for a short...More

Old historic bar that opened in the 1880's. It was a favorite watering hole for writers and Musicians in the 50's and 60's. Jim Morrison and Bob Dylan drank here. It still retains its charm from that era. If you are a history fan, stop...More

Dropped in here for grub during our Big Bus Tour of NYC. The small pub is hidden amongst the sky scrapers off Wall Street. It dates back to the 1780’s and oozes character. Plenty of memorabilia on the walls and the place seems to be...More

We stopped here for a drink after walking the high line in the snow. We certainly got the warm welcome we were looking for. Great banter and a constant turnover of locals happy to chat.

So perhaps the only thing that marks this place as being different from the others is the Dylan Thomas connection but hey that’s ok. Having visited for just that reason we were pleased with our choice. My favourite Hoegarden beer was on fraught and our...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

The SceneThe literary-minded tourists and the local lushes who haunt this joint on weekends know that Dylan Thomas may have been Welsh but it was the scotch that killed him. At the site of his debauched death, various portraits of the poet hang on the dark-paneled walls while indifferent regulars focus on the task at hand: The White Horse has stayed in operation since 1880 by serving its customers--before Thomas and after--one drink at a time.The FoodIn our health-conscious century, though, we know it's as likely to be the pub grub as the booze that does you in. Nonetheless, White Horse's full-flavored burgers, delectable grilled chicken sandwich and slab-cut fries are worthy of poetic excesses--and perhaps even early death. The appetizer classics, leaning heavily on the common denominator of "fried," range from excellent (amply stuffed potato skins and sharp jalapeno poppers) to uninspired (lukewarm buffalo wings).
