The Ginger Man NYC is a geat place. They have an excellent tap list that changes frequently. The service is usually excellent, even when itís busy, and it gets very busy. The staff is knowledgeable. They have a nice lounge with sofas, if you can get a seat. The food is decent, for a bar, if a little pricey. The only problem I can find, and I do think itís a significant one, is with the glassware. And I donít just mean being served my Paulaner Hefe in an English pint, which is annoying. No, the problem is that THEY ARE PUTTING TOO MUCH SLIPPERY SPOT REMOVER OR WATER SOFTENER IN THE GLASS CLEANING SOLUTION. Look around when you are there. You will not see a single beer that has been more than a quarter drunk that has any head on it all. Look around and the top of every beer is flat with basically no lacing. I sure hope they can fix this problem because I have recently moved to New York and am hoping to go there often, but Iíll go there less if this continues.
Went again yesterday, had an awesome Ommegang Rouge and my glassware seemed a lot better. Added more points for overall.

A large place in the heart of Midtown, with more taps than any other place in Manhattan. Excellent selection of handles and good service. Afternoon is a fine time to grab a brew, as evenings can really get packed and noisy with Madison Av. types.
Havenít tried the food. Nice ambience, with a long bar, numerous tables, and assorted alcoves with sofas and couches. Great place.

I was very impressed with this place, was there on a friday night and it was hopping, with a good mix of people, clearly business people, some locals for the neighbourhood, and our group of tourists from Canada. Had some excellent beers, a cask of the counter for their evening special. They had a good range of beers from the NYC area and across the US, was impressed with the menu and the splitting of the list by styles to help people find beers they may like. The staff also seemed to be pretty beer smart and was able to make recommendations to people at the bar for what they may like.

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...

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.

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.

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.
