A group of friends and I stopped in for a ode dinner drink. It's a casual clean bar with tables and all cocktails--not just beer. The guys decided they couldn't wait til dinner so they ordered some flat breads to pick on before our dinner reservation. The atmosphere and staff were friendly and attentive. Great little find

We loved this place. We started with a flight to sample the craft beers. It was difficult to choose. They had many good selections. W also had the cheese and meat appetizer, which was very good. This is a cozy and clean place. We would definitely go back...

My fiancé and I were wandering around the city and stumbled upon this place. Great beer selection, great food, clean and cozy atmosphere. Adam, the bartender was awesome to talk to and definitely made the visit a five star.

Came upon this place while en route to another and so glad we stopped. The bartender was AWESOME, food was great and beer was the best. The beer cheese dip was different from what was expected but was great along with the pretzels. Sandwich was delish as well.

I go here once in a while waiting for my girlfriend who has a dance class a block over. This is a neighborhood bar that got a revamp. The place looks great, sleek and modern. But what makes it good is that despite classing up, it hasn't lost that good bar feel and local vibe you get with real people... More

Wife and I went here nov 11 for appetizers and beer and felt it was good. My wife had a flight of 4 different beers and they were excellent. Our waitress was fantastic but the bartender she had to deal with was a piece of work. Overall, our experience here was good and a big thanks to our waitress for... More

We visited to watch a college football game, and stayed for several hours. Food was pretty good for bar food, and had a good beer selection. Waitstaff was very attentive.

Went here before a show at PlayStation. Within walking distance of many venues. Comfortable pub atmosphere w/many beers and full bar. Relatively small but adequate menu. Ordinary pub fare kicked up a notch to yummy. Try the Reuben w/kimchi or Chick Sammy. Both delish and came w/super crispy, perfectly done fries. Good, friendly service, prices good for NYC. Would revisit.

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.
