Greenwich Village Pub Crawl
Make your way around the confusing, winding and sometimes not-necessarily-straight streets of historic Greenwich Village. Learn about the history of rock and folk music from the 1960s, as your guide introduces you to a couple of classic Village dive bars. It was here where music legends Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, among many others, got their starts. Walk down famed Bleecker Street. Linger on MacDougal Street, home of Cafe Wha? where many famed artists first performed. 


Hell's Kitchen Pub Crawl
It may sound ominous, but Hell's Kitchen, located in Midtown West, is a hell of a place to go on a pub crawl. Begin this tour at a bar that was once frequented by famed playwrights, gangsters and even the police. Quaff a drink or two, learn about the history of the neighborhood from your guide, and then pop into the old Westies Gang headquarters. Then finish the evening by hanging out a true dive bar -- even the booths are held together with duct tape -- that serves free hot dogs. 


East Village Pub Crawl
The East Village, the grungy but hip counterpart to Greenwich Village, is a true drinkers' neighborhood. Start the crawl at a pub that has been the scene of many music videos, movies and TV shows. Learn about the history of the East Village and how it's gone from gritty to hip in just a couple of decades, and then go to a famous 'speakeasy' for a cocktail. Finally, finish the night at a historic pub where Abraham Lincoln once downed a couple of beers.

Loved this tour. I really learned a lot and the walk around the area was great and gave me a different view of NYC.

From a historical perspective, this tour is great. I wouldn't really call it a pub crawl though. More like exploration of drinking establishments with an opportunity for a beverage.

Love Pub tours a great way to meet other travellers. Had a great guide but unfortunately it rained rather heavily so was difficult for him to conduct his normal tour but we made the most of it and had a great time

We had fun but were a little disappointed in this tour. Save your money and do a little research and visit cool bars on your own. I think he could have picked much better places to visit. You would probably learn more from the bartender at each bar than we did from our guide.
