This is one of the coolest bars that I have been to in NYC, lounge areas with couches and chairs, and a really wide selection of beers - at least 50 taps and good selection of bottled Belgian ales - make this place great. I was there on a Saturday night and the place was crowded but not packed so I was able to make my way to the bar without much hassle. I did not smell many cigars being smoked, but almost 75% of the patrons were smoking cigarettes. The smoke wasn't as bad as some places, but it did annoy me after a while. Most Belgian bottles were $7-8 with Rochefort and Westvleteren being $15. I did not think that the $8 Belgians were overpriced since it is NYC where you can pay up to $6 for a pint of macroswill. I definitely will be going back to this place.
