Popped in to rest the feet, went to bar upstairs and met by very friendly and knowledgeable Kevin on beers and NYC. Really enjoyed the relaxed environment, friendly chatty atmosphere and great tasty selection of beers which you can try before you buy. Thoroughly recommend!

The reason we went to Mcgees was for HIMYM. But we went back every day because it was amazing! We had the best service by Kevin the bartender, he gave us great travel advice for NYC and he was just all round a great bloke. I recommend this place and I can't wait to go back. Also I liked how...

We went as fans of HIMYM. The pictures on the walls were the only thing good about this place. Terrible unfriendly staff. Poor overpriced food - we had a mixed platter on which everything was average - soggy potato skins, bland chicken wings. The coke was flat. We were sat by the toilet - which we could smell - and...

My husband and I recently visited on our short NYC trip. We are both big HIMYM fans and so it was definitely on our places to go list. We first visited on our first evening as it was HIMYM Mondays where they had a menu inspired by the show. We both had 'the best burger in New York' which although... More

This was a cool place but the glasses were really nasty. Bar tender, well he didn't seem to care much about his attitude or level of service. I get it, it's the whole ambiance but I won't be visiting again.

We are big HIMYM fans, so we've decided to go check out the pub. The food was average at most and really overpriced. Even so, we were fans so we didn't care too much. But when the bill came is when we were really shocked as the waitress had put a 20% mandatory tip on it. To top it off,... More

This place is amazing. You don't have to be a How I Met Your Mother fan to enjoy this bar either. The wings & burgers are great and the prices aren't bad either. The tip is included in the final price which I enjoyed. It's usually quiet busy at the weekends so I would suggest making a reservation as a... More

After a chilly Friday in NY I stopped off for a beer and a spot of lunch. I opted for a bar seat but there are regular tables too. There is a fire place and plenty of photos on the wall making the place feel cosy. A typical NY bar with plenty of beers on tap, I opted for Sam... More

We stopped in here for a quick drink and to get warm, on sitting at the bar the barman said we looked cold and how about an Irish coffee. I said we don't drink coffee so he offered up a hot toddy. Oh my it was wonderful and did the job. He warned us that in New York the measures... More

The place is cool, we ate downstairs but they have an upstairs too. Our waiter was alright. Had the sliders with cheese and they were delicious. The turkey and bacon sandwich was really good too. We tried to have one of the inspired drinks related to HIMYM but didn't like it. Had an issue trying to change the drink to... 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.
