Why You Should Go: Sheer history, artifacts lining the walls, little changed in 150 years.
McSorley's Old Ale internet poker House in New York City is not only one of the most historical bars in the United States, it's practically a museum. In operation since 1854 (some controversy there, though).
Its walls are decorated with innumerable pieces of decor and memorabilia picked up over a century and a half of continuous operation. Have a couple of the house recipe ales and a liverwurst sandwich.
