Randolph Beer although ďrelativelyĒ new in the Manhattan craft beer deserves a spot on the top echelon. The bar space is contemporary, moody, slightly industrial and full of dark wood. The bar itself is very long and provides plenty of seating area, which is what we opted for. Feels quite a lot like Shoreditch down London way. They have an impressive selection of beers on draught Ė over 30 with a great variety of style from high quality breweries. A few Hill Farmstead offerings made me a happy man. New York City prices thatís for sure, but surprisingly HF was available at happy hour prices. They offer a high quality of service all-round. We didnít eat but food look very tasty. A top spot.

Small, low celinged, dark place with loud music, knowledgeable staff, passable food menu and 34 craft brews on tap. Nice place near Bowery, but the music is disco loud!

A seemingly repurposed industrial space; very hip and somewhat rustic. The beer selection when I went was actually pretty stellar, with some local one-offs and barrel treatments that I hadnít seen anywhere else. Prices are a bit high, even for NYC.

Stumbled across this place browsing lighting shops in Soho. Rustic dark wood interior. No TVs which was refreshing, yet annoying at the same time given it was football Sunday. Really cool space, literally and figuratively as it was a cool day with the windows open and the ceiling fans cranking. Beer menu is segregated into hoppy , light, rich and something else. Selections were pretty good although more so for me being outside of my home market and seeing things Iím not used to seeing. Otherwise it might have seemed a bit pedestrian. I didnít have a chance to visit any of the truly highly ranked beer destinations during my short visit to NY like Torst or Blind Tiger, but Randolph satiated my beer cravings.

Not quite sure what to make of this but itís a nice place. Dark, relatively quiet, moderately hipster, and (naturally, due to being hipster) has that repurposed industrial building look. The tables line the left wall and the bar runs along the right. Theyíve got a beer menu thatís broken into quadrants: light, hop, rich, and malt. Interesting. The choice was to try the Coney Island India pale lager (Seas the Day). There were some big names on there like Green Flash, Schmaltz/HeíBrew, Victory, Troegs, Lagunitas, 21st Amendment, and Founders. There were some slightly more local choices like Peekskill, Single Cut, Coney Island, Kelso, and Lake Placid. There was also Weihenstephaner and Bosteels. Maybe not a super innovative list but itís hard to argue that there are some solid choices there and I found at least three beers that were new to me. Didnít try the food but I kind of think that I should have after seeing what some people had on their plates. My only real complaint about this place is that the prices suck. $8 a beer...

Nice hip beer place in Chinatown, but a bit of a shock to go from $1 dumplings to $11 pints. Expensive, but a really nice, cleanly presented draft list. Food looked and smelled good but we didnít partake (those dumplings around the corner are too good to pass up). Good servers, a nice place.

Stopped by here with Linh after some dim sum in china town. Awesome feel. Dark, nice wood, sick g-dad clock in the back. Solid beer list. Friendly staff.

Nice place overall. Great style points for atmosphere. The beer list is good ... Solid ... Not incredible. Good bar food menu which is nice as its a bar. The best thing about the place is there is plenty of space and it doesn't smell like a production floor. Staff is helpful and nice. If I'm in need of a beer bar in the area this is my goto place. If I'm picking my beer bar, pony bar, blind tiger or top hop are probably higher on the list ... If you don't mind the crowd.

First rating of this recently opened craft beer joint. A lot of them have been opening up in the last year in NYC. The economy has been bad, that is for sure, but it didnít look that way on Broome Street on a Friday night, where I was amazed at how busy and popular this area has become. I came across Randolph on foot, decided to check it out, and was glad I did. It is an attractive, comfortable beer bar, with nice lighting, a pressed tin ceiling, and at least one axe-hewn table. Even though it is a new one, the place has the classic look of a longtime establishment. The selection was impressive, with around 26 taps and a good bottle list, including at least one very hard to get item. The brew was fresh and flavorful, and the service was good. Some of the prices were...New York City prices, but you can still find an excellent pint here at a fair price. I hope to try the food on my next visit.
