This is a NYC classic spot pre and post rangers games and when by Madison square garden you must pay homage! It is a dive and should be respected as such. Beer isn't as cold as it should, floors might not be as clean as you'd want but the bar tenders and friendly and full of info and local lore... More

Wide selection of food for multiple tastes with several Irish favorites. Lots of TV's to enjoy the sports prior to going to Madison Square Garden, which is one half block away.

We found this pub right near Penn Station arriving hungry from our train ride. We enjoyed our drinks, fresh salads, sandwiches, and tasty sides at this cozy, friendly city location. Service was good for our mid-day outing, and gave us a good launching spot for touring.

After a long day exploring Manhattan, our family stopped here for a quick pub grub dinner. The atmosphere was tired, the waitress acted like she had to be there. We ordered fish and chips with a jalapeno popper starter. The fish was obviously packaged frozen fillets. One was not fully cooked. Yes, it was primarily an Irish bar, but the... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
