White Horse Tavern in New York City, NY
Perhaps the most famous for being the location of Dylan Thomas' bar, many other notable patrons have visited the White Horse. These include The Clancy Brothers, Bob Dylan, Jim Morrison, Norman Mailer, James Baldwin, Hunter S. Thompson and Seymour Krim, among many others. In Gene Raskin's song, Those Were the Days, the White Horse is mentioned as the tavern in the line "Once upon a time there was a tavern."
Jack Kerouac was another famous frequenter. Kerouac was bounced from the bar on numerous occasions. Someone had even scrawled into the bathroom wall: "JACK GO HOME!"
The White Horse was also the gathering place for labor members and organizers and socialists. It was the hang out of the Catholic Workers, and was where the idea for the Village Voice was discussed.
