Great selection of American Craft Beers, constantly rotating rarely if ever has the same beer been on tap when I return. Usually 2 cask beers and 20 others on tap. Don't always get the food but the short rib sandwich and short rib grilled cheese are both excellent along with the homemade potato chips. It's not that big and does... More

This bar was right next door to our dinner choice for the night (Hell's Chicken- which was also very good!). We walked in and the place was packed- which is to be expected on a Saturday night at 10pm, but we always see this as a good sign! The bar opened up shortly after we ordered a couple beers. The...

Went to have a few beers prior to dinner. Excellent atmosphere with reasonably priced craft brews from all over, especially local NJ and NY beers. Beer was very good of course. If you are looking for a local place with reasonable craft beer prices with a true NY feel you will not be disappointed.

The bar area was really cosy and perfect for chilling out and trying a few beers with friends. We sat at the bar for a few hours here during the afternoon, whilst it was pouring with rain outside, and it was a perfect place to be! Perfect to relax and have a chat! The beer selection here is ever changing... More

I have been here countless times (even have a few T-Shirts) on visits to the city and absolutely love it here. It's a small bar but the beer and cider here is fantastic. It has a great atmosphere and great bar tenders. If you ever make a visit to New York and want something different, come here you won't be... More

As an Englishman who loves good beer in a proper pub this place is as good as it goods. Excellent beer at a sensible price with nice staff. If you're in NY and want a beer then go here.

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

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.
