Great English pub style ambiance. prompt service. Great draft selection. Only suiting that I enjoyed a Hitachinao Ginger beer while there.... A great place to stop in middle of Manhattan. Certainly worth a trip.

After exploring much of the NYC beer scene, I finally got over to The Ginger Man. If you are anywhere in the near vicinity, it is definitely worth checking out. Just keep in mind that this is 36th street. I live in Brooklyn, and it isnít exactly my "scene".

Another highlight of the trip. Awesome selection draught and bottle and for once the bottles were reasonably priced. Had Southampton IPA on cask which was amazing. Draught selection had lots of local stuff which I liked. Food wasnít a huge selection, small stuff that was good like a hot dog with bacon and cheese on it. Went both days and really enjoyed it. Really nice look with wood and gold plating, a lounge area in the back, a long bar and plenty of booths. Iíll be back.

The greatest place to drink beer in Manhattan. Best in absolute visited. Much wide with optimal furnishing and tidy space. Not far away from Empire and Madison Ave, the Ginger Man introduced rather dark with beautiful glass window and longest counter where they make beautiful extension an impressive series of draught beers. Much width also the bottles beers choice available. Kind and indeed gentle staff whom, before trying, makes me to taste the chosen beers. Indeed excellent with good music and acceptable noise.

Grandpa  (12) Verona, New York | August 14, 2007
I look for a bar where it is cool not cold, light enough to read the menu, not dark or glaring, service that is knowledgeable and attentive but not intrusive, where the noise level is low background and doesnít interfere with quiet conversations. This place filled that bill. the bartender was quick to explain the qualities of the offerings while stating her preferences (sheís a hophead). Samples were offerred. We ate a cheese appetizer at the bar which satisfied the munchie requirement while drinking several pints. I had planned a quick stop but stayed over two hours.

Simply the greatest place to drink beer in Manhattan and Tri-State region. To spend an evening with friends here drinking beers is one of the greatest experiences of your entire life.

Iíve been to the Ginger Man a few times now. Itís convenient when youíre in midtown. The tap selection is big by NYC standards but many of the taps arenít unusual or special in my mind. The overall feel is nice. When youíre not there during the post work rush itís a pleasant place to be and I will go back . i would head to some of the more unique local places downtown first.

Big place with a huge tap selection. This one is on the upscale side of things. Far from the cosy friendly little pub this is a large unpersonnal but very plesant place. The place is half-trendy half-classy and so is the young clientele (20s to mid 30s). Very packed on week-ends Iíd be curious to see the place empty. Must look like a ballroom or something. Service is of the ďbe happy Iím serving youĒ style. Taps are filled mostly by local micros but the selection is very nice. Very surprising to see such a nice tap selection in a place filled with yuppies that are anything but beer geeks. As expected from the look of the place and the clientele the prices were a bit stiff. Bottle menu was ok but more than likely you will be busy enough with the tap selection. The place is noisy but the music isnít too loud. Check for the couch section in the back, very nice. I really enjoyed the place even if Iím obviously not the target clientele.

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.
