Greenwich Village Literary Pub Crawl

About Greenwich Village Literary Pub Crawl
Local actors take you on a fascinating tour of Greenwich Village bars rich with literary history. While you relax over a drink, they'll weave tales of the pubs, the neighborhood, and the writers who helped shape it. With in depth and ongoing research we've dispelled much of the misinformation shared by other tours. We're the oldest and most accurate in Greenwich. And the most fun. And the cutest. Passionate recitations, charmingly dashing guides, and a buttload* of wit - (*is an actual form of measurement for alcohol. 1 butt load = 126 gallons or 2 hogshead)

We really enjoyed this tour, which had a lot of fun anecdotes. Due to the enthousiasm of the tour guide, we could submerge in the lifes of the great poets and writers in the Village.

One of the best ways to spend a Saturday. I loved our tour guides. They were knowledgeable and played off each other nicely. Not only did they give GV a historical context, they even recited some poem/verses from the writers they were talking about. I've...More

A really fun tour. It covers some of the lesser known writers as well of some of the more famous ones and the guides were knowledgeable and engaging. Would definitely recommend it.

Our guides were very personable and pleasant. Unfortunately the material lacked substance and interest. So much more could have been said about the authors and area, there was a lot of silence.

My daughter had just moved to Greenwich Village, and I wanted her to learn the literary background of her new home. The Crawl was excellent, and turned us onto Chumley's, where we later had a most memorable dinner.

This tour will take you to parts of Greenwich Village you would not find on your own. Learn the history and see the famous and infamous buildings in this part of New York.
