5/5  rDev +18.2%

Wow! By far, one of the best beer bars in New York. May be even the best beer bar, all things considered. Here's why:

1) it is spacious! A lot of beer bars are crammed with low ceilings. This bar is very expansive with 20 ft ceilings with sweeping murals. It's a cathedral to beer.

2) Clean! The first thing I noticed is how impeccably clean this place is. They take immense pride in keeping this place antiseptic despite the heavy volume.

3) Friendly service! Everytime I've been here the bartenders and staff have been very cordial. Always seem to meet friendly patrons as well.

4) Selection! Very comprehensive and very organized. Never had a bad tap; everything seems clean and well-maintained.

A pretty good value, considering it's in Midtown and only blocks from Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, and close to Times Square too.

I've heard the food is good, but I have yet to try. I love this place though, and I will frequent it often.

Had some time to kill waiting for my train from Penn Station, so I picked this place over the other pubs on the same street based on their advertisement for Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. Silly but I guess advertisement works.

Atmosphere - Nice and comfortable, booths, tables, or bar. I chose table by an outlet to recharge phone.

Quality - Club sandwich was tasty, perfect to compliment my flight of four beers

Service - Waitress was knowledgable and friendly.

Beer selection was great, had beers not available in NH.

Overall I would recommend and go back if in the area again.
