Visited on Friday afternoon, looking for beer buying. The place has a small bar and few other small tables, but most of it is bottles area, both cold and warm. The tap list wasnít exciting and I really didnít drink there. The bottle selection was the same... nothing really good that time. Maybe they have better days, I didnít find this place good.

I had always heard about this place, so last time we were at UES Pony Bar we decided to stop by here as well. Format of the place includes a nice draft menu and large bottle selection to go. Some nice stuff, but some of the pricing seemed a bit high.

Was donating clothes at goodwill and was in neighborhood. Had to rush since I parked illegally but nice liking store. You can drink there which is great and selection is decent especially for neighborhood. They could add even more inventory in space but still if your near here stop in and you should find some bottles to your likening.

Craft brew comes to the Upper East Side! It is springing up all over the City. This is a clean, well-lighted place, with a bunch of good drafts to choose from. The bottle selection is equally good, with some unusual foreign items mixed with some expected ones. The fine looking, tattooed barista is a positive addition to the milieu.

bmerz  (122) Brooklyn, New York | October 10, 2012
Clean, almost overly so cafe aesthetic. The bottle selection is comparable to all the new wave of better bottle shop / growler filling spots. But its oddly curated to my taste with a lot of international semi macros...different strokes I guess. I found a few nice things for very reasonable prices and the staff was very attentive and gave off beer nerd auras. Best stop in the area probably.

Phenomenal shop on the UES. Honestly this (and more recently the new Pony Bar) is the best thing to happen to the UES since Iíve lived in/visited NYC. The range here is exceptional for both draft and bottles (American and international). Great deals on happy hour draft beers, which you can drink in the shop. Most of the bottled beers are well-priced; although, the $4 (I think it was) corkage fee to drink in seems a bit steep. But for take-away the prices are fair. The bottles are laid out logically. The dude who served me was a fun dude indeed. Iíll make a point of stopping in here whenever I get to the UES.

For about a month or two, this was the best and pretty much only place too get good beer in UES. Now Pony Bar UES is open but they actually compliment each other. If you want a bar go to Pony UES, if you want a low key cafe/bottle shop this place is fantastic. Super nice owners,

Brand new on the Upper East Side. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Really impressive selection of bottled beers from all over the world. 14 taps and growlers to go. If youíre in the area its an absolute must.
