This location has been a spot for boozing since the 1400’s, but the Cittie of York itself has only -- only! -- been sloshing since 1645. The space itself is a mismatch of styles and design, with wood beam ceilings, fireplaces, small booths, and massive ceilings. Be sure to keep exploring in there, as there are a number of hidden bars that have all joined up into the one big complex.
