The only thing that might have spoiled my first (long overdue) trip to Rattle 'N Hum the other day was that it followed a very recent trip to Toronado in San Francisco. Toronado is probably the best beer bar i've ever been to, but Rattle 'N Hum might be number two.
The selection is great, locals, great west coast beers and an impressive belgian list. The beers are listed by style, which is great and the bartenders are very knowlegible (and attractive).
On my visit I had the Racer X, which I think i've only seen in New York once. I don't exactly remember the prices but don't think i was impressed any way or another.
They don't seem to offer good there, except for a few cheese plates.
I went here again recently and was equally impressed. Selection is great. I went from Ginger Man directly to here and the two places are quite similar in terms of layout, selection and emphasis on beer. Ginger man is a little more upscale. Both are amazing.

Recently out in the city to meet an old friend. Have been wanting to go here for some time, but just hadnt made it. Im glad I did. My kind of place. Good beer. Cool people. Staff was friendly and accomodating. A solid selection of styles. The pricing was a little heavy but I didnt rate it as such figuring it was the city. We tried a few different things from the menu. All were good, but as one might expect from simple pub food. Nothing I'd write home about, but good.
All in all a place I'd recommend. Had a great time.

Arrived around 4:30 pm on a Wednesday. The bar was completely full but plenty of tables were open. Greeted by a server immediately but it took some time until she returned for a drink order. I knew what I wanted almost instantly but it seemed perhaps they give all patrons appropriate time to look over the draft list, it certainly is extensive. I order a glass of Bourbon County because, well, why not. $10 for an 8 oz pour, yeah... that's overpriced. Granted, I'm right off Fifth Ave but still, come on. Other pour prices weren't as obnoxious... Jai Alai $8 for 14 oz, but I guess this is NYC after all. I ordered the Fish & Chips; the chips were well done but the fish wasn't great. Breading completely fell apart from the fish and was a bit soggy.
By 6:00 pm the bar was completely packed and literally had to fight your way back out to 33rd St. Another one of these places I'd love to hit between that 2:00-4:00 time frame for the sake of the crowd it seems to draw.
