Went to Rattle N Hum last night for the first time and had a great time. They had a Green Flash event going on so there were 30 Green Flash beers on tap, along with 10 others, and they also have a large bottle list written on the ball in chalk. Almost all drafts were $7-8 which I consider very reasonable for good craft beers in NYC, and you can get flights of 4 4oz. beers of anything on draft for either $10 or $12 depending on which beers.
The bottle list looked pretty good. We were able to get a bottle of this years newly released Black OPS, as well as a bottle of Bourbon County Vanilla Stout, which I was surprised and excited to see on the bottle list.
I also thought the food was pretty good; got the buffalo chicken caesar wrap.
I enjoyed the atmosphere a lot as it seemed to have a lot of people who appreciated good craft beer and didn't get too crowded. I walked in at 4PM and got 2 seats at the bar, and was able to talk with the beer manager. After stopping by The Ginger Man I came back around 7:30-8PM and was able to get a table for 4 within 5 minutes of being there, and it was much less crowded than The Ginger Man.
Overall, it's a great bar with a great selection. I liked it better than The Ginger Man and will certainly be back.
