  • Have you seen Mickey? The Ear Inn sits in an 1817 building that has been home to a bar for much of its existence and is supposedly haunted by a frisky sailor named Mickey.
  • the century club: since 1817. feels like being in an old boat in here
  • Feel like in another century. The staff is friendly and I liked the burger! The cabernet sauvignon is marvelous. Liked the no cell phone area.
  • The B in the neon BAR is partially painted over to read EAR, after the the Ear Magazine that used to be published upstairs
  • one of the oldest, best bars in NYC. supposedly it's called The Ear because the sides of the "B" in their "Bar" sign out front wore out. ask the bartender if it's fact or myth.
  • 1871 this place was 5 ft from the hudson. Today its said to be haunted. Clear your night you're gonna wanna stay for a few pints. Get the Ear Ale. Only served here. Brewed by Brooklyn Brewery. Cheers
  • A NYC Landmark (literally), The Ear Inn is the oldest bar in NYC. Inviting, cozy vibe. Drinks are cheap, burger is solid - what's not to like?
  • Great vibe on this Saturday afternoon. Like being in a London bar.
  • Built before 1812, it was the house of African-American revolutionary James Brown. The first-floor tavern opened in 1817. It reopened in it's current form in 1977, after a short gap in operation.
  • Built in 1817 for James Brown which is a controversy in and of itself. Stop in when Gary is working and have the house special, shot of Jameson and a pint of Guinness.
  • The Shepard's Pie is amazing, order with a Guiness Stout and be super happy!
  • Best dumplings I've EVER had.
  • Come see motorcycle on Tuesdays!!
  • Ask the bartender for a 'Timothy'
  • Down and dirty shot and beer bar. How do you beat it?-Jimmy Bradley , Top Chef
  • They let you sit outside on the benches out front with your drinks when the weather is nice!
  • burger and salad for lunch
  • Oldest bar in NYC!! Go for the atmosphere and read up on the history! Burger is good and the people are friendly
  • Turkey burger
  • Great food, don't let the small kitchen and appearance fool you. Get a burger or the chili!
