Bartenders know their beers and they are all Belgian beers, so you know they are good. Staff is well versed in what beer goes well with what food. But drinking is the name of the game in this place.

I went here two days in a row while in NYC. I know that goes against a lot of tourist rules but I had the most awesome time Iíve ever had outside of Belgium. *Decent tap list. Decent Bottle List. Nothing mind blowing* *After you sit there for a while, random bottles just start getting offer from Fantome, De Dolle and Boon* *The wait staff was great. We spent about 4 hours dancing to grunge rock, and being entertained by the staffís awesome karaoke skills* *One of the waiters offered me his floor to crash on next time Iím in NYC* *Excellent service as in, when your glass is almost empty, they are ready to take your next order* *Good glassware selection, clean taps but other than that, itís very much a dive bar looking place* *I canít wait to go back*

OK folks, this is NYC so donít complain about prices. AMAZING so let me repeat AMAZING selection and dedication to Belgian style brews here. Have been all OVER the NY-NJ-CT area and nobody has draft and bottled Belgian selection like BXL. Bartenders know these beers and can guide you to your preference before you buy a glass. You will find seasonal specials here you might never see elsewhere on tap. Get the country pate appetizer, if you are lucky enough to get a seat at the bar and talk beer with the bartender you can exponentially increase your appreciation for Belgian-style beers on tap and in general

Sister bar to BXL East, which I often frequent. Staff is great and selection is pretty good. They serve liquor at this location, which they donít at East. Food is tasty and place is fairly small.

Wondered over here after finding a brewery a few doors down (not naming any names here) was closed at 9pm and was rather rude about it. Dimly lit with a relaxed atmosphere. Bartender was very friendly and helpful. Interesting taps with some good bottled also. Had Hennepin on tap also their house beer brewed by Ommegang, which was an interesting brew at 6% with nice flavors of coriander. Food smelled and looked good, so I threw it a 6. Found it cool that they had all the glasses to match the beer. Will be returning here next time in the city.

Located adjacent to time square, the location couldnít be any better, also being only blocks away from the station. The Duvel logo printed in the awning drew me and a buddy in. The place was dim-lit and loud, filled mostly with business men and attractive women. The place was packed for a wednesday light. I was impressed with there glasswear, having every appropriate glass for each brew, all of which were belgian or belgian-style, like Ommegang. There were several beers I wouldnít exoect to see on tap, and was impressed to see so, including Triple Karmeliet. The bottle selectiion was nice, too, with Orval, Rodenbach Grand Cru and many more. The bartenders were nice and the wait staff was attractive and helpful. The food looked and smelled nice, appearing much better than your standard pub and grill crap, though I didnít have the food so I wonít rate it. The walls were decorated with metal signs of all the brews they carry. I definitely be stopping by again after a show or something.

Chili, laid back pub only steps from Times Square. Beers are all (or at least mostly) Belgian. Theyíve got a good draft selection and a number of additional offering in bottles. Been in here a few times - the bartenders have always been friendly. Food is good as well. I like to stop in for a beer every time Iím in NYC.
