Village Voice's Description
The grandaddy bar on the block, this Irish pub has been around since the late 1800s and hasn't changed much. Though the exterior is now firehouse red, the inside remains as narrow and hallway-like as ever. While fleets of Hell's Kitchen transients pass up the bar in search of rowdier evenings, locals hail McCoy's as the perfect spot to catch The Big Game on some modestly sized televisions and sip a Guinness among a strong collection of pennants and slogans, including, "Wanted: Good Man. Must be able to dance, socialize soberly, do household chores, and fix everything." Perhaps a bar is the wrong place to search for such a creature, but the folks here certainly seem nice enough.
Tips from foursquare
Great bar, great bartenders...but every once in awhile they forget the difference between Jameson and well whiskey. Know your whiskey friends ;)
Small, simple bar. They have Chicago's Goose Island on tap. You can order in as well, so get an Island Burger from next door with your beer.
Have a good time and say hello to Adam and Cian
All around great bar. The bartenders are fun and you can sometimes spot cool celebs in the back. ;)
