THIS IS AN INTERESTING BEER SPOT. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL WHEN YOU WALK IN. THE DECOR TAKES YOU AWAY FROM WHERE YOU ARE AT AND THEN INTO A BIT OF RUSTIC ELEGANCE. THE BARTENDERS ARE VERY GOOD AND PROFESSIONAL AS ONE WOULD EXPECT IN NYC. MOST KNOW HOW TO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD WITHOUT BEHAVING LIKE ROSIE AT THE DINER. SOPHISTICATION THATS WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE GINGER MAN. WITHOUT BEING STUFFY. UNFORTUNATELY THERE HAVE BEEN A COUPLE OF DUD BARTENDERS. A BIT EXPENSIVE BUT THEY MAKE UP FOR THAT WITH GENEROUS TASTINGS AND AN AIRE OF SERVICE THAT TRANSCENDS EVERYTHING. GOOD SELECTION OF BOTH BOTTLES AND TAPS. seems the place keeps getting better.

Fantastic bar. In the City when looking for a brew, this is the place to be. Great selection, great staff! Seats were hard to come by. Very clean, great atmosphere.
Not the norm in this fast paced "jungle"!

large conservative bar, you can still hear yourself spek. Itís c lose to the insane Times Square, you can still connect, have a great beer. Loud music but some leather sofas away, only before the meat market thursday through saturday. David will pour you without even looking the great beer, 50 or so taps, even more vbottles,m and cask, and turnover. Please, be polite, get his attention and order the great beer. Loud music and yet you can talk, near new york city downtown. Local and far away and Europe and itís hre and it ,moves fast.

Deffinetely a place you want to go midweek when you can stretch out and relax, maybe enjoy the lounge room in the back. weekends its just way to crowded and service can be a real problem. while they have many taps theres a broad range in quality. the food is resonably good pub fare. ive never had any problem finding something great to drink on the menu but i enjoy the smaller beer bars for the more relaxed atmosphere

Updated: 11/28/09. I have been back to this bar several times since I first rated it ó usually in the middle of the afternoon when it is not shoulder-to-shoulder with people. Excellent tap menu. Cask offerings, too. Comfortable seating and friendly staff. One of the best beer bars in Manhattan. The food is very good as well. It is pricey, but that seems to be the case in most of Manhattan.
Menu included more than 60 draft beers and around 150 bottled beers. Plenty of regional beers as well as beers from everywhere else. Very comfortable bar, though we were shoulder to shoulder with everyone else on Saturday night. Was less crowded on Friday afternoon. Best beer bar Iíve found in Manhattan.

Now this is a selection which will please most beer lovers. Lots of regional taps featuring lots of rare and seasonal brews. The bottle menu was more standard since you could get any of those at New Yorkís or Brooklynís best beer stores. The sofa room at the back is particularly cozy and relaxing, but you have to get lucky or work hard to get a few sofas for your party as the place is jampacked in the evening. Prices are very steep (6-7$ a pint!), but this is to be expected in this neighborhood. A friend had trouble with a waitress who served him the same beer twice even though he had ordered something else, and all she said to him was, defiantly, "How do YOU know itís the same beer?". Needless to say, this attitude is more than offputting when you pay premium prices to get special beers. Another waitress (in the sofa room) was very nice though, so the rudeness plague hadnít hit the staff. Anyway, if you want a crazy selection in a very classy atmosphere (this is the antithesis of the neighborhood dive), and you donít mind paying a few extra dollars, you will have a lot of fun at The Ginger Man.

This place has a ridiculous number of taps, but theyíre not all necessarily good. OK selection, with lots of the swill included. Kind of upscale for me, not as chill as some beer bars.

This bar is crowded with seating across from the bar and then a lounge are across from the bar in the back. Thereís a good selection of expensive beer with some vintages and an extensive line of taps. The place is filled with yuppies and is often frequented by rich people who will order a heineken or a stella. The bar staff is quick and friendly but they wonít let you put your feet up on the tables in the lounge area... whatís up with that. The waitresses are quite hot. I havenít tried the food but it looks decent and there are many people coming in for dinner. Overall decent bar if you donít mind dropping some cash.

This place has really put a great deal of effort into improving both the selection and the quality of the tap selection, to great effect. 70 taps from a wide variety of styles and all of them lately have been in good condition. All of their regular gravity stuff is served in 20 oz glasses, which easily makes this place the best value in Manhattan. The crowd is still loaded with suits and the food still isnít all that good, but if youíre here for the beer, by all means come on in. Getting here earlier lets you avoid the crowded conditions and preponderance of suits.
