One of the least talked about places in the beer nerd community, I consider it something of a hidden gem.
The tap selection is consistently outstanding. In addition to almost always having several unique and excellent brews, they often have vintage and hard to find kegs. Two of the best tap lists I've ever seen have been at this bar!
Pricing is in line with NYC craft prices.
Food is top notch. The regular menu is extremely well done pub fare with unique items like bacon wrapped matzoh balls and pork wings. They often do special menus during events which highlight the brewery or style of the event.
Service has always been excellent, the owner takes very good care of me despite not being an extreme regular (I probably go twice a month on average). He is a gregarious fellow who is very passionate about getting great beer in the bar. The bartenders are all solid as well.
Atmosphere is classy Irish pub style. The old NYC newspapers lining the bathrooms are a fun touch, as are the photos of the Bowery area from early NYC history. The split bar makes it so that there's usually a space even if it gets crowded. And even after a Ballroom show lets out, it usually doesn't get so crowded that it's uncomfortable.
Overall, a really top notch beer bar with a great tap selection daily, and a world class tap selection for events. Also, probably the best food of any beer bar in the city. Highly recommended.

Excellent craft beer bar. Lots of great choices. A little pricey, but that's to be expected with the combination of the location and the beer itself. It's literally right next door to The Bowery Ballroom, which is great, because now I have a great place to go and get craft beer before concerts there. They do tap takeovers every so often which is pretty cool, and they use rare, highly-rated beer bottles with flowers in them as set pieces for the tables. They had Bourbon County Proprietor's blend, Zombie Dust, Dark Lord... not as awesome as actually selling those beers, but still somewhat exciting for this beer nerd.
Also, props for using TeKu glasses - the ultimate beer glass.

I love this bar! I live in NJ, and will go out of my way to get to OMH. It's right next to the Bowery Ballroom, so if you are going to a show, wet your whistle both before and after literally one door down. The crew there are all veterans, and know their beer inside and out. They manage to get their hands on great stuff, and it's never so crowded that you can't breathe. I almost don't want to tell people because it's such a great secret, but they have been so good to us that I feel compelled to spread the word.
