A couple months ago, we wrote an article about the 10 oldest bars in Manhattan, and you may have seen it, you may have even enjoyed it (fingers crossed), but a group of some the most industrious, intelligent, and no doubt dashing and beautiful readers, took it to the next level and turned it into an actual day-long bar crawl. And since there's pretty much nothing we love more than when people act on our articles and tell us about it on our Facebook page, (please do this), we decided to publish their very thorough itinerary for exactly how to drink at Manhattan's 10 oldest bars in one day.
Scott Prusko and about a dozen of his friends went on the glorious adventure all across Manhattan and below is the step-by-step guide to doing it. Cheers, dude!
ITINERARY: Oldest Bars in Manhattan
- You will be both walking quite a bit and taking the subway.
- Not including your arrival and departure you will need 7 trips (x $2.75) available on a MetroCard.
- Very comfortable shoes recommended and comfortable but neat clothing so we are welcome in each establishment.
- Menus may not be 100% accurate but it looks as if every establishment does have a kitchen and I tried to provide a link for each.
