Pete’s Tavern

Where: 129 E 18th St, New York, NY 10003
  • Allegedly one of the oldest bars in NYC; also claims that O. Henry was a frequent guest
  • The booths are ready to fall apart but adds to the authenticity of their claims
  • Their food is nothing to write home about, although I didn’t have any of their Italian fare
  • We went at the perfect time– 2pm on a Sunday– we were the only ones there and then it got really crowded
