New York City is a drinking town. And this bibulous tour takes you to one of three bustling booze-flowing parts of town, visiting some of the best bars and pubs in the Big Apple. Hit the true local spots, eschewing the tourist traps and the bridge-and-tunnel bars. From historic saloons to celebrity hangouts to classic New York dive bars, this tour will show you the real Big Apple drinking scene!
  • 3.5-hour pub tour of New York City
  • West Village, East Village or Hell's Kitchen Pub Crawl
  • Tour New York's famous neighborhoods
  • Visit Café Wha?, the scene of Jimi Hendrix’s first live performance
  • Pubs visited include The Whitehorse Tavern, Kenny’s Castaways, Playwright Celtic Pub, Old Town Bar and McSorley’s Old Ale House
  • Learn about the history of the bohemian movement in New York
  • Local and professional guide
Greenwich Village Pub CrawlMake your way around the confusing, winding and sometimes not-necessarily-straight streets of historic Greenwich Village. Learn about the history of rock and folk music from the 1960s, as your guide introduces you to a couple of classic Village dive bars. It was here where music legends Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, among many others, got their starts. Walk down famed Bleecker Street. Linger on MacDougal Street, home of Cafe Wha? where many famed artists first performed. 
Hell's Kitchen Pub CrawlIt may sound ominous, but Hell's Kitchen, located in Midtown West, is a hell of a place to go on a pub crawl. Begin this tour at a bar that was once frequented by famed playwrights, gangsters and even the police. Quaff a drink or two, learn about the history of the neighborhood from your guide, and then pop into the old Westies Gang headquarters. Then finish the evening by hanging out a true dive bar -- even the booths are held together with duct tape -- that serves free hot dogs. 
East Village Pub CrawlThe East Village, the grungy but hip counterpart to Greenwich Village, is a true drinkers' neighborhood. Start the crawl at a pub that has been the scene of many music videos, movies and TV shows. Learn about the history of the East Village and how it's gone from gritty to hip in just a couple of decades, and then go to a famous 'speakeasy' for a cocktail. Finally, finish the night at a historic pub where Abraham Lincoln once downed a couple of beers.

Loved this tour. I really learned a lot and the walk around the area was great and gave me a different view of NYC.

From a historical perspective, this tour is great. I wouldn't really call it a pub crawl though. More like exploration of drinking establishments with an opportunity for a beverage.

Love Pub tours a great way to meet other travellers. Had a great guide but unfortunately it rained rather heavily so was difficult for him to conduct his normal tour but we made the most of it and had a great time

This tour was amazing!

We had fun but were a little disappointed in this tour. Save your money and do a little research and visit cool bars on your own. I think he could have picked much better places to visit. You would probably learn more from the bartender at each bar than we did from our guide.

Well our guide did not show up which was very disappointing! but we did meet a great guy from Scotland and we ended up having a drink with him.

A great experience our guide Brooklyn Jimmy was absolutely brilliant, very informative and funny, he told us lots about NYC and life there, he was an absolute gem of a man. The places he took us were unforgettable and we would never have found them otherwise. We would highly recommend this trip.

Our pub crawl in Hell's Kitchen was exceptional! Dennis, our tour guide, is a native New Yorker. He was funny, unpretentious, and personable. We especially appreciated his knowledge of history and of the area. The tour began on time, moved at a good pace, and was unhurried. Our tour was the first night of our trip to New York it really helped us get our bearings. The 3 pubs and the beer were good, too! We had a fun evening with Dennis and the other 3 guests.

Like it. very interesting pubs.

Derek is a very nice guy and he knew a lot, hence making it very much worthwhile. Walking Eastvillage by night is cool. He also led us to some 'secret' locations you wouldn't find if you are not a local. All in all a very interesting tour and I will do it again next time in NYC.

It was fun

Very fun went to places wouldn't normally have seen

The trip was truly enhanced by David's (the tour guide) knowledge of the pubs we visited and his general world knowledge of history. David was an engaging host and I thoroughly enjoyed his company. I thought the tour was very good value for money and whilst on this occasion I did the East side pub crawl, I would certainly do the Devil's Kitchen and West side on my next visit to the Big Apple.

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening, Mike was a excellent guide who gave us a real insight into the history of New York while taking us to some great bars to soak up the local atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone visiting, no matter how short their stay
Once again, thanks Mike, you made our stay that little bit more memorable
