vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$$

Prime Mid-town location. Two streets away from the Empire State Building.

Welcoming atmosphere, but still rather vibrant. Lots of young people on a Saturday night. Long bar on right. Seating around the walls. Taps on the walls behind bar. Beer decor, but not too cheesy. Done well. Lounge area in the back. Get there if you can. That space is available for private parties.

Selection is diverse and well-rounded, though no great finds for the most part. Still, you can get a Belgian white, or an Imperial IPA, or a Pilsner, etc etc. I saw Stone IPA, and Arrogant Bastard, also Brooklyn Lager, Great Divide, Boulder, Stella, Pilsner Urquell, and many more on Tap. Also, dozens more in bottles. Beer menu divided into styles, like at other beer bars.

Food was good. Appetizers include a nice Italian cured meat platter with cheese, flat bread, and pickled veggies. Entrees are limited to pub grub, like hot dogs, burgers and sandwiches, but they are down o so right. I recommend the Ginger Man Hot Dog.

Service is somewhat sassy, but attentive. They are just really busy and have no time for any indecisiveness. We got our waitress to try some odd beers, that we had ordered, because she seemed curious.

Wines and mixed drinks available for significant others or friends who might not be enthusiastic as your self when it comes to beer.

I got there around 10pm on a Saturday, manged to snag a lounge spot. When I got up around midnight to relieve myself, I was astounded to see the place packed to the brim. Young, lively crowd. Great place to chill with friends and toast to some tasty brews. I shall return whenever possible.
