The Old Town Bar Hot
This bar was featured in Madonna's Bad Girl Video
Are you a bad girl?
This little old bar has been operating since 1892. Seriously, this place has been around for more than a century. If you want to go to a bar with a cemented place in NYC history, Old Town is it. It still has most of its original decor (and urinals, in case you were wondering, which were made in 1910…).
Like most other bars in the city, the Old Town Bar operated as a speakeasy during the Prohibition Era.
If you walk in for the first time and wonder why you’ve seen the bar before, that’s because it’s been in plenty of popular television shows, movies, and even in Madonna’s “Bad Girl” video… we’re not kidding.
This is definitely a place to check out as much for its history and location as its food and drinks. Still not convinced? Well, this historical spot won’t break the bank either.
