Party Earth Review Despite its genteel name and ivied French windows, Wilfie & Nell is actually a hardcore watering hole for young professionals and finance types looking to get seriously drunk – and an impressive selection of tap and bottled beers like Rogue and Dead Guy Ale helps them reach that goal.

Party Earth Review The Tompkins Square Park area might not be the first place one would expect to find an authentic Irish pub experience, but that’s just what St. Dymphna’s delivers, from the craft beer on tap to the wine list scrawled on a chalkboard trimmed with Christmas lights.

Party Earth Review As much a historical landmark as it is a tavern, McSorley’s Old Ale House has welcomed such illustrious guests as Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt over its 150 years, and only started admitting women in the 1970s. Still in its original location, the bar nowadays is home to a loyal blue-collar crowd joined by a good showing ... more

If you think finding Irish pubs in New York is hard, you probably find breathing pretty difficult too. New York Irish pubs are everywhere, from kitschy tourist-filled joints to tucked away dives that have had the same guy on the same stool since dinosaurs roamed the Earth in search of properly poured Guinness.
Even in areas you might not think would naturally play host to Irish pubs, at least one has usually snuck in beneath the radar. The Tompkins Square Park area, for example, is hardly the first place one might expect to find an authentic Irish pub experience, but that’s just what St. Dymphna’s delivers, from the craft beer on tap to the wine list scrawled on a chalkboard trimmed with Christmas lights.
Meanwhile, over in Chelsea, Stout NYC is an immense but homey Irish pub usually filled with a bustling crowd of young professionals – not to mention the yells of rowdy University of Texas football fans that have made the pub their official hangout on fall Saturday afternoons. Not far away, Lillie’s is a NYC Irish-Victorian bar popular with business people, creative types, and weekend pub crawlers, and only serves to highlight the great diversity of NYC Irish pubs.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a borough in New York without a few solid Irish pubs to satiate your need for shepherd’s pie and bangers & mash, or to find an Irish pub that’s as rowdy or as quiet as you want it to be.
