Great atmosphere - lots of wood, a beautiful wall of taps, tasteful brewing posters/promotional items on the walls. Iíve only been here when its slow - I imagine it could get quite crowded at peak hours. I had a Aecht Festenbier & a Capitan Lawrence Smoked Porter, my fiancee had a Sixpoint Tripel. They offer food but we didnít get any. Attentive and knowledgeable bar staff.

I loved this place. Great Midtown location (You can see the Empire State Building from the front windows.) Excellent beer selection, comfortable atmosphere and plenty of room to relax. This may be the only bar Iíve been to thatís inspired by a novel (by J. P. Donleavy), copies of which are for sale on the premises.

Great location, great dark woody - pub-like atmosphere, but on a grand scale. Get there early, itís packed and itís loud, specially on Thursdays.... The staff is great, once you get their attention, though some of them need more beer knowledge. There are always 4-6 TOP beers, among a long field of middlers and there are usually 2 Cask Ales - hand pump... Always fun.

I hadnít been here in a few years, because I thought the place was over-rated, in terms of selection and in terms of beer culture. I went back for 3 reasons: (1) The Gingerman in Austin is awesome (though I know itís no longer the same ownership (2) the website promised three Hair of the Dogs and three Weyerbachers reason enough to go anywhere, and (3) with the demise of the Collins Bar, I needed a place in mid-town. Argh! Still the same extensive-but-somehow lacking beer list. No Hair of the Dog, no Weyerbcaher. @#!! bait and switch! The place is kind of refined pub as far as atmosphere, but it also seems to be a yuppie-magnet (craft beer wannabees). And the DFH 120 is $20. Even Copperfieldís only wanted $15. Pretense masquerading as beer culture.

Oak  (4) NYC, New York | March 22, 2008| Updated April 15, 2008
Great place to go after work for a few drinks. The bar layout is great and the selection of beers is usually really good. The food isnít too bad either, if you want to feel like a kid again order the tater tots. I recommended this to a friend for a bachelor party on a Saturday night and it wasnít a great experience you could barely move around and a lot of taps were emptied but during the week I love it.

puzzl  (138) New York, New York | March 20, 2008
A very enjoyable bar. One comes here for the huge line-up of taps and nothing else. They will always, always have something you want on tap. They often also get hard to find imports and sell them for killer prices. 20oz of Aecht Fastenbier for $5 or 12oz of Cantillon Saint Lamvinus for $6 anyone? The ambience blows, just a bunch of frat-boys and the post-work crowd, the food is terrible, and it can be hard to get a beer, but I still really like this place.

Great place to be in NYC. A must for beer lovers. Great selection of draughts and bottle. The service was great, the staff was really nice, although could be trained more on beer knowledge. The ambiance is LOUD, depending on what you want, it could be a lot of fun or plain just too LOUD.

TBone  (239) Pori, Finland | March 13, 2008
Huge tap selection with lots of really good beers. Place is big enough, but lighting is a bit dim. Service was good, female bartender seemed to know about beers. A bit upscale, yuppie kind of customers, which is tolerable. Decent food. I liked a lot of this place. Good location too!

cellardoor  (17) St. Louis, Missouri | February 27, 2008| Updated March 4, 2008
I stopped in by myself on a Wednesday evening and was blown away at the crowd. I was faced with a bunch of yuppies who were being adventurous by ordering a Harp. I was tempted to leave but the wall of drafts and the vast selection of english, german, belgian, american and even italian beers was too much to pass up. I wormed my way on to a table in between some office happy hour and enjoyed a Rodenbach and an Alesmithís Old Numskull with a Ploughmanís Lunch entree. The service did their best given the circumstances. I would love to go with some friends during a quieter time. It is a must for the serious beer drinker when in NYC.

I liked this place a lot more than I thought I would. They really had a great draft beer line up. So many times places with over 50 taps get lazy and end up with a bunch of filler crap. Not so here. A number of pretty obscure offerings as well. One knock: better bring your drinking shoes...they only serve large glasses (imperial pints). So if you want to try a bunch of different stuff, itís kind of hard when youíre throwing back 20 ozís a pop. Would be nice to see 10oz/12oz schooners. I would have stayed longer & spent more.
