Cool spot, like an authentic Irish pub with a bit of an urban twist. Bartender was great, 20ish taps although more than a few were taken up by not very interesting macros (Stella?). Brunch waffle was ok. I donít know if Iíd make this place a big destination spot, but Iíd love for it to be my local!

Not the most exciting place in the city. Iíd go a couple blocks north to the Jimmyís/Burp Castle/Standings menage a trois. Decent selection, fun ambience, and a 100 year old bar or something.

Love the Swift. From a nice beer selection to a chance at a celebrity citing (William H. Macy anyone?) and a great ambiance, the Swift never dissapoints. Great bar for a beer on a cold winterís night.

Nice little brown bar with a more-than-decent tap selection, even for New York. Everything I had was in superb shape and barman was prompt and friendly. They even serve a proper Pilsner Urquell, with the same level of foam as Czech pubs, and same freshness. They had great variety on the taps too, not just American, not just hoppy, strong and/or intense. All in all, a nice stop if you are in the area and feel like spending a cozy evening with quality brews.

One commenter said walking into this place is like transporting back in time 200 years and I see what they mean. This l,ae is narrow and dark and totally cool. The walls are full of exposed Brock and painted walls of old stuff. They have 25 taps and 30 or so bottles and most of it is of real quality. They have a nice mix of local, regional, national, and international craft. Prices are typical for the city but this is another great neighborhood spot.

Made a stop in here during a walk from the Blind Tiger to the Bowery Whole Foods. A somewhat dark place with some old wooden benches and tables and murals on the walls. Loads of old school character and fairly quiet. Not a giant selection, but lots of stuff that was worth drinking with a good number of local selections. Service was quick and attentive. I really liked this bar. I wish I could give more points for the ambiance; it was just such a pleasant place to stop and have a good beer.

This place is like walking back 200 years in time. Donít look for TVs in this bar, but a great place for a large group in the back room or a couple of friends at the bar. Great beer selection here too, with a few hard to find brews and some great food.

Last stop on a warm summer evening and I think at this point beastiefan2k, JoeMcphee, rciesla and I had said goodbye to puzzl and feedmecookies and ventured out for one (or more) last beer. Really dark, and I seem to recall red, place which we ended up in the back room of at a huge wooden table. Beer list was good and the service was good as well. Strangely, Iíd say this place is worth a stop just for the bathrooms alone. Or at least the menís one, didnít check the ladies. Seemed to be sort of a medieval dungeon with urinals. Just really odd. Another nice enough place thatís probably worth a stop if youíre doing a bar crawl through the area.
