A craft beer oriented bar located in midtown Manhattan. I stopped in here at about 1AM on a Saturday night/ Sunday morning. It is a fairly large place with a wood paneling and beer paraphernalia on the walls. The bar is very long with a few tables along the other side of the wall. In the back is a lounge room with some more tables. It was full when I went in but not packed. We were able to grab some seats at the end of the bar. They have a printed menu that looks like it's updated daily. They have ~70 beers on tap and well over 100 bottles. The beer list if excellent, absolutely top notch. As soon as we sat down a waitress came and took our order. This was awesome as we didn't have to fight at the bar for the bartenders attention. A lot of the beers come in 20 oz imperial pints and are priced in the $6 to $7 range which is pretty damn good for NYC. I really liked this place, I definitely recommend it.

The Ginger Man is, without a doubt, one of the prime craft beer locations in Midtown Manhattan. My job takes into the city 10-15 days a year and The Ginger Man is almost always my watering hole of choice.

The interior is pretty the platonic ideal of the classic pub. Lots of wood and the expected pub decor. Every time that I've been there it's been packed or near packed, though I will say that I'm nearly always there around 5 PM on weekdays, so that likely accounts for some of it.

The selection is fantastic. 70ish taps, with a good variety of local, regional, and national craft, along with British, Belgian, and German highlights. Best of all, there's always two casks on handpump, which is what I tend to gravitate toward.

I've never actually eaten there, so I can't account for the food, but it looks to be solid, British-inspired pub grub.

Beyond the beer, there's an excellent selection of whiskey.

The service can be a little dicey, especially when it's at its peak business. Not unfriendly, just inattentive. Prices are high, but not exceptionally so for New York.

Great place, Vibe is relaxed but still classy, service is decent, although the bartenders are much friendlier then the waitresses, very good selection.

First time at the Ginger Man on November 14. Very nice space with high ceilings and plenty of seating. Huge tap list, although the offerings were not mind-blowing. Food was solid. My only complaint is that they need more servers - the table service was painfully slow.
