Address: 110 Main St, Tappan, NY 10983, United States

Established: 1755

This bar is technically the oldest one in the bunch. It was built by Dutch immigrants in 1668 but officially came to be what it is today in 1755. Can you name a bar that has welcomed George Washington and his guests? The ’76 House certainly did. Yes, they’re that old. This bar brings trendy yet ancient to a whole new level. This establishment has been a safe haven for those weary travelers. Nowadays, busy yuppies and established men converge at the bar to get some food and libations. Part of its original structure remains intact, but what makes this place attractive is that you can now boast of the fact that you’ve shared a bar where President Washington tipped a few shot glasses of his own.
