Neighborhood: Greenwich Village
Description: 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).

The bar staff played a great soundtrack whilst we visited here late afternoon/evening. Plenty of locals popping in and out. Right in the West Village. Good variety of beers, wines and cocktails. Really enjoyed sitting by the window and watching the world go by.

Second oldest bar in New York with what seem to be many original features. Only had a couple drinks at the bar ($15 Makers Mark) so can't comment on food. A West Village locals and artist/writers spot as well.

My husband loves to visit any tavern where George Washington may have been. This is one of them and then this one has great deals, and great food included! We especially loved the prices for beer, wine and cocktails. The burgers, too! And to top it off, the nicest, kindest service ever! Check this place out!
