The White Horse Tavern was made famous by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas as the bar where he drank his last whiskey. Inside, portraits of Dylan Thomas adorn the walls, and a plaque commemorating him hangs above the bar. In the 1950s and 1960s, many more literary figures were drawn to the bar, including Beat writers Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, and New York School poets such as John Ashbery and Frank O'Hara.
