Jesse, one of the most likable characters on HIMYF, lived in the same apartment Ted lived in on How I Met Your Mother, which was famously right above MacLaren's Pub. Yet it seemed they never hung out there. Naturally, it makes sense that they would visit Sid's bar instead to support his business, but when Sophie visited MacLaren's in the season finale, she acted as though she had never been there.
Surely at some point when she was visiting Jesse and Sid, or the whole gang was hanging out, they would have gone down to the pub for a drink. The proximity to where they live made it seem odd that it wasn't at least a second-favorite hangout spot for the crew.
