My first visit was this past summer after the debacle that was the 2007 NY Brewfest. (Needless to say, I should have just spent the $50 here!) I made another visit during Christmas week to make sure it wasnít all a glorious dream. It wasnít.
I arrived on a Friday afternoon at ~3:30, which is probably a good time to arrive to ensure a spot at the bar (though there are also many tables and a cozy back room adorned with couches). Itís unfortunate that dozens of patrons take up space here by drinking Michelob Ultra, but such is life. At least itís usually an attractive youngish crowd.
They have an astonishing number of quality beers on tap (45+) lined up along a sheet of copper behind the dark wood bar, and an impressive slate of bottles to choose from. They also have two rotating cask selections. For my latest visit I had an Affligem NŲel, Rochefort 8, and the cask Blue Point Oatmeal Stout, which was delicious.
The food menu is minimal but tasty (the soft pretzel, Guinness beef stew and turkey and brie sandwich were all very good). The staff seems a bit aloof and not overtly friendly (it is a NYC bar, after all) but overall they were helpful and knowledgeable, providing the appropriate glassware when necessary.
Overall, Ginger Man is an oasis in midtown Manhattan and a must visit destination for the beer lover.

Upon walking into The Ginger Man last night, I was immediately impressed with the placeís scene of cathedral ceilings, the dark wood paneling, and the abundant deep leather couches. The apparent tap selections also caught me by surprise and the cask options were good too. I settled down with a friend for a couple of easy rounds off the menu of taps, which is must to review because the tap selection runs the length of the bar. Well, a couple rounds went longer to four and a generous cheese plate too as we were enjoying the place very much. When we finished, I noted the crowd was mostly late 20ís to late-30ís.
I hope to return to this venerable oasis another time in the future.

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.

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.
