White Horse Tavern is awesome and highly recommended.

When I was in Colorado, we used to go to The Columbine, which is the oldest continuously working bar in the state. Mind you, that it was established in 1903, so it's not that old, but when you consider that Colorado only achieved statehood in 1876, it's not so bad either. Not a great or stately bar, but it does have horse hitches outside so that the locals can ride in by horse, and not get tagged for DUI. The local cops let the cowboys ride home, so long as they keep their hands of the reins and let the horses just take them home...

I LOVE Lafittes.  It even smells like a blacksmith shop.  Until Katrina hit I always regretted not moving to New Orleans when I had the chance.

I've only been to Old Ebbitt.  I may have visited Pete's a few years back, but I wouldn't remember.

Unfortunately, I've never been to any of those - yet.  I may have to start a bucket list, now that I have a top ten...

I did get shiatfaced at this place across the pond, though

Put the word "old" into perspective.

They didn't include the Horse You Came In On Saloon?  Hasn't it been in operation since the 1770s?

It is cool, and so very haunted.

Was there this weekend,  it was one of my favorites in New Orleans, it has gotten too popular and crowded now.

Also had a few at the Napoleon House, less crowded.

/French Quarter Fest is a blast

The Knickerbocker Saloon here dates from 1835.

These people need to get out more.  Hanover Tavern, on Route 301 in Virginia, since 1733:

It has a theater attached to it, so business gets hopping on the weekends.

I'd love to hit all those in a week or two. Who's up for a road trip?

East Coast bias.  If you're going to list bars from as recent as 1864, 1856, and 1854, you could certainly include one from California or some other states.

Been to 5 of the 10

And this is really because I lived I the northeast and visited N.O. A few times. This list really could have expanded past the Mississippi River for sure.

I went to  all these bars before they were old and cool.

Not really, but last time I was at Bell in Hand there was a revolving group of 20-somethings - men and women, probably 10-15 in all - doing lines right off the bathroom sink with the door wide open.  Class.
