MacLaren's Pub. The scene of all the best stories in How I Met Your Mother.
But did you know it's actually based on a real bar?
This is McGee's, the inspiration behind HIMYM's MacLaren's, the characters' favourite bar.
Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas used to drink there while working for Letterman on The Late Show
Sidenote: Recognize them? It might be from this Season 1 scene
MacLaren's was named for an Associate Producer on the show, who also gave his name to the bartender, Carl
But McGee's! It has a bar...
And a fireplace!
Originally, it was this mural that they wanted to include in the show
Recognize that in the background?
You can order HIMYM food
They have HIMYM drinks
They'll even turn off sport for half an hour on Mondays
The actors have been through a few times as well. Here's Josh Radnor at McGee's.
Barney Sti- Neil Patrick Harris at McGee's
Fans do occasionally try to copy the series
And there's some How I Met Your Mother swag around the place as well
But most of the time, it's an Irish bar, with beer...
Atmosphere (especially around St. Paddy's day)...
And a really decent burger.
Which is why they based MacLaren's on it in the first place!
