Just off the West Side Highway, the oldest continuous running bar in NYC has great food and drinks. The mussels were amazing and the burgers were delicious. Great drinks too. Will definitely return.

Awesome pub with great food to boot. The dumplings are their specialty. Really friendly bartenders and a great three piece band started just after midnight. A great place. No frills. Super friendly.

Another bar where we were made to feel very unwelcome, as the gentleman behind by the bar, loudly and sarcasticly ridiculed us after we'd asked if they sold nuts. The couple next to us were also made to feel awkward, after they'd asked questions about...More

We were given a tip off about this bar after a visit to the Brass Monkey. Being the oldest bar in NY was enough of a lure for a quick trip on our way to Ground Zero. You could very easily miss this or walk...More
