This bar does seem a bit of a local pub for local people but we got served quickly and efficiently. The range of beers is brilliant and prices are about average for the area. It was comfy and had a good vibe and if you're on Untapped you get a Founders badge - what's not to like?

Great pub to spend an hour or so sampling some craft beers. Knowledgable staff and decent prices (especially at happy hour)

Yes it has a great range of American craft beers but I found the bar staff to be pretty rude and unwilling to stop chatting up the locals to serve anyone from out of town. I popped in here with my wife mid afternoon on a November Saturday and found it difficult to tear one bar girl away from a... More

I stopped by for a beer and a sandwich last week, and found a very welcoming experience. The chips were very good indeed -- homemade apparently and very crisp. Food was edible but the cheese sandwich seemed a bit greasy and didn't have a great deal of taste. The bartenders were attentive and friendly, premises were generally clean, and overall... More

Went here as part of a night out for a groom-to-be and had a great time. Really good variety and quality of beer, and our decision to have the sandwiches there turned out to be a very good decision indeed! Staff were lovely too and it wasn't too packed.

This is a highly recommended bar for real ale lovers. If you're looking for tasteless, low-cal, fizzy lagers - suggest stay away. Extremely popular bar, and (according to the app) frequented by one of the founders of the UnTappd (beer) app. Highly recommended.

I search out a good craft beer bar each time I go to New York and the Pony did not let the place down. It is a really friendly place both early in the day and late in the evening. I can't speak for the food as i only had beer. The nice thing was that the staff did know... More

A true beer bar with outstanding craft brews and some cask. Beers rotate frequently, but Hill's is usually available served in 8 oz glasses. Order food from the bar.

I sat at the bar and struck up a conversation with a "local" and regular customer. I appreciated the beer selection and the beers that I tried, although I wish they offered smaller pours of their beers so that you can try a few kinds without getting too sloshed. For food, I had the Fried Oyster and Bacon sandwich, which... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
