Every city has bars you must go to while you’re traveling. If you’re planning a trip to Queens, Syracuse, Vaughan, or Mount Laurel, you’ll be treated to some world-famous pubs and restaurants and absolutely stellar drinks. These are four bars in North America that beer lovers must visit.
Queens: Neir’s Tavern
Experience an iconic part of Queen’s history at Neir’s Tavern. This bar and grill has been operating for almost two centuries. The bar opened in 1829, and PBS has even featured it as a famous bar you’ve never heard of. This may be your first time hearing about Neir’s, but perhaps you’ve seen it before. It’s been used as a setting in the films “Tower Heist” and “Goodfellas.” Stop by to enjoy specialty burgers and sandwiches and a wide selection of spirits and cold beers.
Neir’s Tavern is at 87-48 78th St. in Woodhaven. Book a Queens hotel in this neighborhood to unwind over drinks at this historic bar without having to worry about driving back to your room.
Syracuse: Beer Belly Deli & Pub
This spot in Syracuse, New York, certainly lives up to its name. Beer Belly Deli & Pub makes cooked-to-order sandwiches, salads, soups, and more, but the bar and restaurant are perhaps best known for the admirable selection of craft beers on tap. If you can’t find a draft you want, Beer Belly also has bottles and cans, giving you dozens of drink options.
With delicious food and excellent drinks, Beer Belly Deli & Pub is a spot you may be tempted to visit more than once on your trip. Stay in a nearby Syracuse hotel so you can come and go from this deli with ease during your vacation.
Vaughan: Sparks Premium Grill + Bar
Sparks Premium Grill + Bar is a local favorite sports bar and grill. The menu includes dishes that set new expectations for pub grub, such as Mediterranean dip and naan bread for a starter and stir-fry or Coconut lamb curry for an entrée. Sparks also serves a wide selection of beer and mixed drinks to slake your thirst.
This restaurant and bar is located at 2620 Rutherford Road, near many top Vaughan hotels. Find a room in this neighborhood, and you’ll never have to worry about finding a place to go for lunch, dinner, or drinks.
Mount Laurel: Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant
A regional brewpub chain, you can only visit Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in a few states along the U.S. East Coast. This spot is just up the road from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, and is a beer lover’s fantasy. Visit for a good meal and a housemade beer lovingly prepared following the brewery’s unique process.
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant is between Mount Laurel and the Delaware River. Book a hotel in the township, and stop by the restaurant after a day of exploring New Jersey’s outdoor splendor.
Hopefully, this list has made you thirsty and ready to hit the road on your next trip. If your adventures take you to one of these cities, set aside some time to go for a pint at one of these excellent North American bars.
