White Horse Tavern (1974)

2011 June 30
by Iheartnycbars

Not to be confused with the more well known White Horse Tavern in the West Village, this place also shares some of its appeal. It’s a dive bar with an old 50’s chalet decor that gives it character, while the mix of construction workers and Wall St thugs, along with long time locals really accentuates it.  Expect cheap drinks and good ol fried food made on premises. 2-3 floors ensure you will always find a table.  It’s said that Helen, the sweet long-time owner, will give you drinks on the house just for knowing her name and having some distant relative from somewhere In Ireland. As things stand today, it’s likely that this would be Kerouac’s White Horse of choice.
