This place has around 30 beers on tap at a time. One thing I really like is their variety of local brews (mass) . Last time I was there they had jack's Abby, pretty things, worm town, high and mighty were some as far as local goes. They also often times have some top of the line brews from stone, victory, port, and founders.
Considering the city it's in, it holds its own against some of the other high quality bars.
The bartenders I have dealt with were very helpful and friendly, and I don't know if it was because it was a Thursday.. But all beers were six dollars!
The bar also has a really nice atmosphere and friendly people all around.

I have been meaning to check out Hinge for some time now. Several friends
of mine have recommended it on the beer selection alone, but with
other really solid beer destinations in Noho such as the Sierra Grille, Dirty Truth, and the
Northampton brewery it can be tough to think outside the box and make time for something new.

I finally made some time on a recent trip. Sadly I was unimpressed. The beer selection was remarkably mediocre despite previous reports from friends. The many tap handles looked promising, but nothing was labeled. The chalkboard with the beer list was crammed way at the other end of the bar in the back which made it challenging to read from the opposite end of the bar.

While it had a pretty decent vibe, the bartender managed to destroy it with her pretentious attitude. Although only half of the bar stools were filled during my visit she still managed to find thirty two other things to do before serving me. In the end when I was trying to get out the door it took even longer to settle up with her.

I certainly can't let one crappy bartender dictate my impression of this place. I'll be back another time to give hinge a fighting chance but for now I'm not impressed. Until my next visit I recommend visiting this place with hesitation and reservation in what may lie in store for the next thirsty visitor to Hinge.
