First stop in NYC last week and enjoyed that they had immediate seating for a gang of 8. Prompt service for initial beers and food orders came quick. Selection was pretty good, more wide than deep.

Vibe is old world English/Irish bar. Awesome back area. Quality is good clean lines, fresh beer. Service was hit or miss. Selection is fair, 25 drafts lots of different styles. Food was pretty good. Wings were great.

A very cool spot in a neighborhood we rarely get to. Jam packed on a Friday night. Service was remarkably quick given the crowd. A terrific tap list, with great local selections prominently featured. The food was the only negative for us. Ho hum scotch egg and pretzel. Burger was decent but no more.

Great place for drinks for sure.

This pub has a warm, cozy look and feel in spite of its fairly large size. It has lots of wood with welcoming staff and friendly patrons. After putting in a lot of miles walking around Manhatten this place was a very comforting oaisis from the sea of concrete and an outstanding spot to quench our thirst. They have a very nice selection of draughts, as you would expect, plus interesting food. We didn't order much to eat but I do remember a side of roasted brussell sprouts which were delicious. We visited twice in the late afternoon and it wasn't very crowded although on Friday it was picking up. We enjoyed our brief visits here and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys craft beer with a nice atmosphere.

This place shines for its unpretentious approach. Very busy the day I went, but the bartender was incredibly personable and even let me have a beer for the discounted price 5 minutes after happy hour ended. I've gone to my share of places where 30 seconds after 7, I had to pay full price. I understand, but it's ridiculous. I ordered a flight, which was average in price for NYC, but I enjoyed their extensive selection of brews, especially one offs from bigger breweries I know and a bunch of local beers. It was a very loud venue, but for a bar, I expect that. My food was excellent; a perfectly cooked burger and well done fries go a long way. Hope this place makes a good impression. It's the sort of place midtown needs.
