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.
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.

Nice atmosphere... looks similar to Rattle but a bit more spacious. Food is good, beer selection is solid... Evil Twin, Still Water, etc. Staff is very friendly. Great spot Iíll be back.

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.
This place opened in early 2011, and it appears to be doing well. On a Wednesday night, there was a good crowd, with a fair number of young professionals and attractive ladies, a garrulous beer rep, and even a possible celebrity sighting. The look of the place is a little "quality suburban" - burnished wood and light fixtures, but I liked the ambience overall. There is a long bar and ample table room. I didnít try the food yet. There was a solid bottle selection and 40 good taps to choose from, including a brewery special. The servers were friendly and fast, but did not seem to be beer experts - no matter. Move over rover - there is another fine craft beer bar in NYC.
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.
