Visited the Pony Bar on 4/9/2010. Not a huge place by any means, but comfortable and clean. 14 stools at the bar, a couple 2-person barrel-top tables and a couple 6-person tables. Bartender was very friendly and polite, but the best thing about this place was the $5 draughts. Twenty taps and two casks - all American Craft brews. Anything eight and over in terms of abv was served in an 8oz. glass; however, you can't beat the price and the selection was solid, well-displayed above the bar, and up to date (check the website before going if you are looking for something specific because it changes over quickly). No table service, so all ordering is at the bar. My one regret was that I didn't spend more time here.

I've been to The Pony Bar atleast once or twice a year so its probably about time I give it a review. I went yesterday for the Hudson Valley tap take over during NYC Beer Week and they had a solid lineup from Newburgh, Peekskill, Keegan Ales, Rushing Duck and Sloop. They had a great tap selection with good variation of styles and 2 casks. We grabbed some appetizers which were really good and the bar was definitely getting busier as the night went on.
Overall this is one of the better craft beers in Manhattan. They one price point which is very reasonable for NYC and they always serve in the proper glassware. Their been menu is constantly changing and is updated almost instantly on their digital board and website. I love the fact that they keep these updated because it definitely keeps them on my radar. Its always one of the first menus I check when I am heading to the city for some quality beers. The atmosphere is always casual and relaxed. Usually a good amount of beer heads with a wealth of knowledge hanging around discussing beer. They have a nice food menu and I usually grab something light. I would definitely recommend this bar when you are in the area.
Great beer lineup, great staff and always a good time. Cheers!
