With a mixed bag of histories from raucous, Prohibition-era speakeasies to exclusive establishments that brag of hosting presidents and celebrities, the oldest bars in the United States are as diverse as the country itself. Here is a look into the oldest bar from every state and the District Of Columbia.
Note: Claims to being a state's "oldest" drinking establishment can sometimes be a bit, well, fuzzy thanks to murky records, disputed accounts, temporary closures, etc. If you know of an older bar in your state, please kindly let us know in the comments section.
