Old Town Bar

This historic bar in the Flatiron district is tough to argue with: a classic, slimline New York tavern with wide, marbletop mahogany bar, tiled floors and tin ceilings. Operating since 1892, Old Town’s pretty much seen it all, including several years as a speakeasy named Tammany Hall during the Prohibition Era. Attracting mobsters and hipsters alike, the Old Town is also understandably popular with writers, presumably for its dusty atmosphere and strong drinks. Author Frank McCourt even called it the “King of New York Bars”. An upstairs room offers slightly quieter surrounds, though the menu is available throughout the bar. Go for the burgers – they’re some of the tastiest in the city.
