White Horse Tavern (New York City)

White Horse Tavern (New York City)

The White Horse Tavern, located in New York City's borough of Manhattan at Hudson Street and 11th Street, is known for its 1950s and '60s Bohemian culture. It is one of the few major gathering-places for writers and artists from this period in Greenwich Village that remains open. The bar opened in 1880, but was known more as a longshoremen's bar than a literary center until Dylan Thomas and other writers began frequenting it in the early 1950s. In the past few decades, it has become a popular destination among tourists.

The White Horse is perhaps most famous as the place where Dylan Thomas drank, before returning home and eventually becoming ill and dying a few days later of unrelated causes. Other famous patrons include The Clancy Brothers (who performed at the establishment), Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, Norman Mailer, James Baldwin, Seymour Krim, Richard Fariña, Jane Jacobs, and Hunter S. Thompson. It continues to be popular today with tourists.

The White Horse's other famous patrons included Jack Kerouac, who was bounced from the establishment more than once. Because of this someone scrawled on the bathroom wall: "JACK GO HOME!" At that time, Kerouac was staying in an apartment in the building located on the NW corner of West 11th St.

About the same time, the White Horse was a gathering place for labor members and organizers, socialist, and liberals. The Catholic Workers hung out here and the idea for the now famous "Village Voice" was discussed here. The "Village Voice" original offices were within blocks of the White Horse. Much of the content was discussed here by the editors.

One of the first interviews related to 9/11 was recorded here by NPR, since many from the World Trade Center area made their way to this part of Manhattan.
