Local Bar filled with history and old time charm. Dark wood setting and dim lights filled with locals and tourists alike, this place is a great place to make a pit stop on your way back to the hotel. Unpretentious and relatively inexpensive.

Just stumbled upon this place whilst going round New York. Excellent place. Almost felt like a pub back in the UK. Quite dark inside but great if you want to get cool from the blazing summer sun. Sat in a little booth area. Had sandwich with fries which was plenty. Good portion sizes. Not too expensive. Cool decor everywhere and interesting place to take in whilst in there.

RUN! Do not walk AWAY from this place, or anyone suggesting that you go here for anything other than a sticky beer or a bathroom. OTB remains a nostalgic footnote to the City of Yore, however the food is overpriced, inedible. How does one ruin a cheeseburger? Ask the chef (cook?) at Old Town Bar. How anyone is charmed by this filthy, dark, excuse for a "classic bar" is mystifying. Avoid!

I’ve been travelling to NYC for business & leisure for over 35 years & never knew about this place! What a place! We sought sanctuary there from day tripping in 80 degree heat. Loved the super chilled ale & delicious shared nachos! We’ll be back!

Old town is an historic bar. It feels great just walking in. Stopped in for quick beer and a burger. I got exactly what I asked for. A Ballantine for the short beer list and a rare burger and fries. All served with a smile. Love this place, it’s a classic
