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.

Lots of locals chatting at the bar and for us that is always a good sign when the locals want to hang out. This historic bar salutes Dylan Thomas appropriately. This was one of the bars he frequented. Our drinks were good and we enjoyed...More

Great place for a quick bite with the kids. Fast and friendly service, with a very good menu. The food is fresh, delicious, and inexpensively priced. Not many places in the Fidi area, and this place is a real find.

Great home made food..........just tried grilled chicken and veggie burger. fries lightly seasoned with just enough taste. Prices very fair for downtown Manhattan. Short walk from Battery Park, Bull and Ferry. Traditional pub atmosphere.
Some of the reviews talk about grumpy staff here, or an overbearance of tourists looking for Dylan Thomas. Truth is it’s a straightforward sawdust bar, with decent beers in stock and good bar fare on the menu. Take it for what it is, and it’s...More

Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
