Pete's Tavern

129 E. 18th St. New York, NY 10003 | Flatiron | 212-473-7676

Location Description:

The battle for the title of "City's Oldest Operating Bar" continues. Pete's Tavern, established in 1864, is a prime contender. It's got literary street cred (O. Henry penned The Gift of the Magi in the booth by the window) and it's got regal dark wood and gold touches. This antiquitous appeal has landed Pete's in Seinfeld and Ragtime. Unlike McSorley's, the city's other prized historic bar (established in 1854), Pete's Tavern is a bit classier. There's no sawdust on the floor, for example, and the locals are free to enjoy drinks other than "dark" and "light," like Pete's good ol' 1864 Ale.
