  • White Horse Tavern
    567 Hudson St., 212-989-3956
    White Horse Tavern was a favorite haunt of several famous writers, and Dylan Thomas consumed his last shots of whisky here. The Welsh poet's portrait hangs in the dining room, which itself dates to 1880—simply put, White Horse is thick with history. Another blast from the past is the tavern's selection of beer and hard liquor, which subscribes to no artisanal trend. The accompanying menu is anachronously, greasily lowbrow. Luckily, all prices (cash only) are equally old-fashioned. This classic dive bar is best visited in the off hours, and particularly in the afternoon, when the servers and kitchen staff are consistently at their most attentive.
