I met a Cigar City rep at Pony Bar HK and he told they were reintroducing the brand to NYC after a two-year pullout with a bunch of kegs at two bars. One was Blind Tiger and the other one he couldn't remember the name, some place at 85th and 2nd Avenue. A quick Google search had me going to Bondurants, in the midst of a craft-beer wasteland.

What a beautiful bar this is. All wood, candles, a chalkboard menu and a rustic environment... simple but oh-so-cool. Craft beer and bourbon, I am in! Twentysomething taps, including five special Cigar City taps during my visit. The Rum Barrel Marshall Zhukov was to die for. One of the best beers ever. They update their taps regularly on beermenus.com, which I appreciate, and there is always lots of good stuff. Jolly Pumpkin, Maine Lunch, Green Flash, Smutty, Barrier, Stone...

Great service as well, friendly and knowledgeable, but there is no table service that I know of, so order at the bar. The food menu looks pretty good, although my kale salad was mighty disappointing. Next time I'll go for the smoked chicken wings (good craving).

More downtown than Upper East Side, this is a true gem of a beer bar. I will be back and back again.

One a growing number of great craft beer spots in the UES. This place has rotating tapsm great food, and friendly bartenders and crowd. No TVs are typically visible except for big games as the are sleakly hidden behind menu boards. This is overall a great place to get a beer, whisky, or food. One of my new naighborhood faves!
