There’s nothing like a TV show that dedicates as much time to characters sipping down drinks as spitting out dialogue. While many shows make great fodder for boozy watching parties at home, occasionally even Netflix bingers need to get off the couch and into the real world—if only to stalk the real places featured on their favorite weeklies. Relive small screen magic by drinking at the same watering hole as your favorite characters at these real life bars from TV shows.
MacLaren’s from How I Met Your Mother
You may not have a friend as legen…wait for it…dary as Barney, but you can still take your runner-up, real-life pals to the boozy hangout from How I Met Your Mother. The bar, actually called McGee’s Pub, is located in midtown Manhattan, and it’s where the HIMYM creators used to drink back when they wrote for David Letterman on The Late Show. Try your worst pickup lines on the other fans making the pilgrimage to the bar, or soak up the drinks with a chicken jerk wrap called TedMosbyIsAJerk.com on the menu.
