Located in Hell`s Kitchen is a great beer bar, which is a great addition to this neighborhood. The Pony Bar is approaching a year in business and seems to be doing a lot of things right. It is a small, well designed space. The beer is all American, seriously, no pun. Cigar City, Rogue, Smuttynose, Weyerbacher, and Brooklyn (among others) were on tap when I visited. Bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. They serve beers that are all priced at 5 dollars. And the food is pretty good too...I look forward to coming back.

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!

The Pony Bar HK (Hells Kitchen) is one of the best 'we take a lot of pride in our beer' bars in NYC I think. It's always on point with their constantly changing selection, and they focus on serving American (only) craft beers on tap.
It's a small cozy spot, a few communal picnic tables, a small amount of bar seating and a couple cask/barrel two/three tops to sit at. They are quite popular, they have a "real" happy hour (that actually lasts an hour only) which is cool. Plus its from 4:20PM to 5:20PM so go figure :P
