Love this place for volume beer consumption and a great place to meet a friend and catch up without TV or other distractions. You go, you order a bunch of mini-double drafts, drink and repeat. Awesome in what it is.
What an awesome place. We came here up from the Florida panhandle and was memorized be the crowd of clientele and the staff efficiency of seating us. We sat with a group of unknown folks whom were real nice. WE dropped $70 bucks on beer...More
We came here as a suggestion from a friend. Was a bit nervous at 1st when we sat to order and learned there was only 2 types of beer to choose from as a drink. They were amazing though. 2 glasses of beer for $5.50...More
We had a great time, I wish I was there right now. They offer two choices, pale or dark beer. You get two glasses with each order but each glass is only about 6 ounces. For us, the best part of the visit was standing...More
A friend of mine who attended NYU introduced me to McSorley's. It is one of those rare neigborhood gems that has stood the test of time. Authentic to the core, it does things its own way, with simple but satisfying bites, and good beer. It...More

We went 2 days before Christmas around 3:30 pm, and it was PACKED!!! We had to stand the entire time and it felt a bit like being in a crud we’d NY subway car. We would like to go again so we can sit down...More
When we stepped in the door, I was brought back to my coed years with the smell of stale beer and lads and ladies playing drinking games. You need to be prepared to answer one question: pale or dark? In return, you will get two...More
Visiting from Ireland and were recommended by a mate to check out this place, what a mistake that was.
Probably the worst experience of the whole trip was calling into this place, never been treated worse in my life, which is is disappointing as we...More
We were encouraged by native New Yorkers to check this place out with our pre-teen daughters for the amazing history lesson and neat artifacts on the walls. My husband and I were looking forward to trying their two beers. We came in on a rainy...More
We are two women in our forties and shall be in New York next Monday for two weeks. Our hotel is close to the UN. We have reservations for musical and opera shows, love to make gastronomic tours and finding restaurants, bars and similar that have been in the city for decades and more. We are curious but not looking for unsafe areas or places in which two women cannot feel comfortable. Has anyone of you been to McSorley's Old Ale House lately and can you recommend similar places that...More

Closer to where you are staying is the Ginger Man, which is McSorley-esque. (ie. Old World style specializing in Beer) It's on 36th b/n 5th and 6th. That and the other bars in the area cater to the local 9 to 5 crowd. As for McSorley's the last time I was down there it hadn't changed at all. (Somehow I doubt it ever will.) It's the usual beer loving crowd alternating between there and Burp's Castle down the block.
