This bar is directly across the street from a Hilton that I recently stayed at in NYC. Went in for a few beers, some bar grub, and to watch NFL football; beer selection is excellent and you couldn't beat the atmosphere. I was glad we went early, as we were seated upstairs and the place filled to capacity quickly. The... More

We stopped in here with a group of friends on Christmas Eve primarily for drinks, but we ended up staying for dinner. These same friends went back again a few days later. They had all sorts of quirky beers that some of the lads tried. The cocktail menu wasn't extensive but they were tasty. And as I mentioned in my... More

Came here for lunch before a show. They have a large selection of beers on tap and am extensive menu of burgers, small plates, etc. Had gluten free chicken tenders! Would highly recommend the nachos as an appetizer or could easily order a few small plates to share as a meal.

Try the brisket sliders, they are amazing. This might be one of my favorite bars in NYC with a great draft beer selection and some amazing food at reasonable prices for what you get. The bartenders are friendly and love to chat. I know when people come to NYC they often say they want to stay far away from the... 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.
