How I Met your Mother

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! To celebrate, let’s look at some famous Irish pubs in New York and Boston, many of which are featured in iconic TV shows and movies.

McSorley’s Old Ale House

The oldest Irish tavern in New York, it was a “men only” pub up until the 1970s. Ironically, it is used as a different pub in 1950s comedy series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.


Green Dragon Tavern

The historical spot where the Boston Tea Party was planned, and where Paul Revere was sent on his famous ride! The bar is located in Boston’s North End.



This New York spot was established as a bar in 1895, converted to a grocery store during the Prohibition, and then reverted back to a bar in the 1930s!


The inspiration for McLaren’s in How I Met Your Mother, this is where the bromance is born and where the gang hangs out each episode. This is the final stop of the NYC TV & Movie Tour, as well as the meeting spot of the When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour.



The iconic setting of the TV series of the same name, the Beacon Hill bar has been operating since 1969. It acts as the final stop on the Boston Movie Mile Walking Tour.
