Dead-related, but one of my favorite bars in NYC is McSorely's Old Ale House on 6th street just east of Cooper Square. Been there since 1854, and it's something to experience at least once in your life. Lots of really cool, all original crap hanging on the walls, sawdust on the floor, and they have both kinds of ale, light and dark! Order in increments of two. I have heard allegations that the Dead hung there a couple of times way back in the wayback. Not entirely implausible, as it is just down the street from where the Fillmore East used to be.
my travel schedule for work is a busy one and I get to visit some wonderful places. It seems as though everywhere I go I try to find a bar that an old Deadhead would enjoy.
And now I find myself headed to NYC this week (knowing that the Wetland Preserve is long gone).
So I would love to hear from anyone who could recommend the best bars/clubs for an old Deadhead wandering around NYC.....
Peace and Kindness
