Washington Square West Bars & Nightlife
McGillin’s Olde Ale House
1310 Drury St., Washington Square West
This place is a classic, both in the sense that it’s been around forever (it opened in 1860!), and also in the sense that it has all the reliable hallmarks of the perfect Irish bar: the likely suspects on tap, plus some local brews, the food you want to eat while drinking beer, and lots of loyal regulars. Note: It’s not a sports bar per se, but it’s a great place to watch a game if you can find a seat.
