Nice spot in the Gramercy/Murray Hill area. Lots of dark wood and brass with a long bar dominating one side of the room. Loads of taps and bottles with daily beer specials on kegs that are running low (5 bucks/pint - a deal in Manhattan). Bartenders were efficient and pretty knowledgeable. The selection also had a wide range of things - from Founders, Cigar City and a number of imports. Another great addition to the Manhattan beer scene.
Sports bar atmosphere with a few decent taps. Mostly locals but a few beers from out of state you donít see everyday. Decent beer selection. Food looked good, but I didnít eat, so I canít comment on that.
Stopped in here during the early afternoon for a quick beer and something to eat en route to meet up with people for some New Years activities. Nice taplist, and updated regularly. Nice selection of beers that seemed to take into account that many beer geeks will often bring their non beer geek friends, who then feel overwhelmed. But thereís certainly enough to keep all but the most jaded beer geeks happy. Food menu was simple but with a few nice touches to keep it interesting. Ended up getting a couple of appetizers and a few beers. Service was quick and friendly. Iíd stop in here again.

Large, clean and very friendly. Service was polite and accommodating. Solid beer list with over 40 taps. You can order samplers. Food was good not great. Solid spot!

Iíve been here 3 times so far. Iíve never really personally encountered the staff, but theyíve been pleasant from what Iíve gathered. The taplist is always changing with some nice options: Stone, CCB, Founders, Mikkeller, that whole crew. Lots of seating area.
Stopped in as I bar hopped my way downtown. Nice clean space kinda a little corporaty feel. Lots of taps including beers from 14 different NY breweries which was cool. Bartender was unknowledgable but friendly. Lots of tvs so good spot to watch a game for sure.
A nice enough place, seemed fairly similar to Ginger Man and Rattle ín Hum. Maybe with the decor of the former and the atmosphere of the latter. The two girls behind the bar were friendly enough. Good selection and decent prices.
A big crowded sports bar with a pretty nice tap list. Several regional favorites, big micro favorites, and a handful of local options as well. Attentive service and average prices. If youíre trying to watch a game and drink good beer, this is a good place to do it.
Typical sports bar with an enormous selection of mostly underwhelming beers. Sometimes youíll find a couple gems. This place is fairly out of the way on the normal Manhattan track, so itís probably not worth a stop unless you are eating dinner at Blue Smoke, which you probably shouldnít be doing anymore since theyíve gone fiercely down hill in the past couple years.
It would have been a standard sports bar a few years ago but now it is a "taproom" with a few dozen solid but pretty uninteresting taps. It is the usual selection of the top distributors big sellers and whatever the rep pushed on them. The IPAs were fresh. The service was very fast and friendly. The price at $7 for a standard IPA was a bit steep but more or less normal for NYC. The place is loud, brightly lit, and filled with young manhattan professionals donning the business casual well into the night.
