If you’re looking to grab a few beers in a historic location, McSorely’s is your spot. The Irish tavern is credited as being one of the oldest in the city, and the atmosphere will leave you feeling as though you’ve stepped back in time. There’s sawdust on the ground, dozens of old photos lining the walls, and only two drink options—light or dark. Make your preference known and watch as a bartender comes to your table with an impressive amount of glass mugs in each hand. The small space can get crowded, but if you’re willing to sit with strangers, the staff is great about finding you a seat.
