“While you are in New York, there is a bar that you have to go to” (joke)

There’s a joke about the best bar in a big city (usually New York), as one person tells another. When you walk in, you’re handed a free drink! Then, they take you in the back and you get laid for free! “Have you been to this bar?” the other asks. “No, but my sister has,” the first person replies.

The joke has been cited in print since at least 1999. New York has been the location of the bar in the joke since at least 2013.

Zepp, Silverback and Eric Da Red were in a bar, They all agreed it was a really good bar, but then Silverback said “yeah, but there’s a bar in my town ... you buy one drink and the bartender buys you the next!” Zeppo and Eric nod in agreement ... yeah, that’s a good bar, alright, but then Eric says “yeah, well, there’s a bar in my town where you buy one drink and they give you your next two for free.” Wow, Silverback and Zepp smile and agree that’s a REALLy good bar, then Zepp says “You think that’s good?  There’s a bar in MY town where they give you ALL your drinks ... for FREE and then,when you’re good and drunk, they take you in the back and get you LAID!”

Eric and Silverback said “Wow! what a greet bar that is.”

Then Eric asked “Zepp, have you been there?”

Zepp said “no, but my sister has.”

Three men are talking in a New York bar: an irishman, an italian, and a polack.  The irishman says:

This is a fine bar, but it’s nothing like the bars in Ireland. Why, if we were in O’Malleys, what I time we’d be havin’! At O’Malleys pub, you buy your first drink, you buy your second drink, and your third drink’s on the house!

The italian says:

That sounds like a great place, all right, but it’s nothing compared to the bars in Italy.  I know a place, Giovanis, where you pay for your first drink, your second drink’s free!

The polack says:

Yeah that’s not bad, but I heard of this bar in Poland, Dumbrowskis, where your first drink’s free, your second drink’s free, your third drink’s free, and then they take you in the back and you get laid for free!

Italian and irishman:  Wow, you’ve been to this place?

Polack: No, but my sister has!

Two Irishmen are talking and one says to the other:  I know of a great pub where you can get free drinks, free food and then they take you in the back and get you laid for free.  The other Irishman says that is too good to be true and I dont believe it.  The first Irishman says it is true:  free drinks, free food and you get laid for free.  The other Irishman says I still dont believe it, have you ever been there?  The first Irishman says, No, but my sister has.

There was a guy from New York, a guy from Philadelphia, and a guy from Cincinnati having drinks together in an airport bar.

The guy from Philly says, “This bar is nice but there’s a better bar in south Philly. At that place, everytime you buy two drinks, the bartender buys the third one for you.”

The guy from New York says, “That’s pretty good. I know of a bar in Brooklyn where everytime you buy one drink, they kick you back the second one on the house.”

The guy from Cincinnati says, “Those bars are nothing special. The best bar of all is back in Cincinnati. There you drink free all night and then they take you out back and you get laid.”

The guy from New York and the guy from Philly say, “Wow! You’ve been there?”

The guy from Cincinnati says, “Well...no...but my sister has.”

Bob was getting ready to go on a trip to New York for the first time, and was talking to his friend Barry.

Barry: “While you are in New York, there is a bar that you have to go to. When you walk through the front door, you are handed a free drink. Then you can go to the back room and get laid. Come back up to the bar, and you get another free drink. Then you can get laid again. It goes on like this all night.”
Bob: “That sounds unbelievable. Have you really been there?”
Barry: “No, but my sister has.”
