Nice old timey feel, beatiful big oak bar with comfy stools. Couch room in the back for lounging. Dimly lit, quiet music, nice old school beer ads decorating the place, and a quote from the poem/book "The Ginger Man" everywhere you look. Saw glasses for "yards of ale" and "half yards" too. Bartender friendly but had to re-try a beer b/c he couldnít remember what "type" it was... Must try: "Pick 4" beer flights. Good value and best way to try beers from around the world. Nice menu layout- beers organized by country of origin. Attempt to rectify fruit fly issue- saw lemons and limes out to attract them away from the booze.

I hit the Ginger man right at happy hour, Not that you will find any beer specials but it was pretty busy. Had good timing in getting a space on one of the drinking tables. Service was good, considering it was packed; I didnít even know there was a couch room until I had to hit the john. Beer selection is great! Food was good. Nice atmosphere would like to go back to hit those couches.

Comparable, but not quite as good a value or experience as Rattle n Hum. More beers on tap, and a seemingly more knowledgeable bartender, but it was missing something and was more expensive. Fruit flies kept trying to beat us to our beer.. in March? Not a good sign for summer.

Lovely building to drink a few ales. Decent tap selection and bottles. Staff were friendly. I was there when it was quiet so had a seat on the comfy sofas to drink my samplers.

Itís got a lot going on, a pleasant build-out, fantastic selection with lots of turnover, pretty decent staff. Can get to crowded post-work, I enjoy going over on a saturday or sunday, taking a newspaper, sitting in one of the easy chairs and reading and drinking. So sue me.

As you walk in the bar is not very wide but somewhat long, overall its a small - cozy bar. The atmosphere was great. Low, but warm lighting gave a very comfortable feeling. Staff was very friendly and for the most part fairly knowledgeable. I had no food so canít rate it, donít know if they serve food actually. Overall it was a great bar that I will definitely be attending again when in NYC.

Best selection Iíve ever run into. High marks just for that. A little bit expensive, but nothing out of the ordinary for Midtown. I make it a point to stop in whenever in Midtown NYC. Iím always sad that I never have time to linger and knock off four or five beers Iíve never had. Stopped in Friday, early afternoon, and it was a nice chilled crowd of early sneak-out-of-work people, and beer tourists. Had an exceptional cask brew - Chelsea Hoppy Holidays - (yea, I know, time to throw the tree out and take the lights down). Waitress didnít know better when someone ordered a íGoose Island 90 Minuteí but an extremely knowledgeable bartender stepped in and corrected the situation. He was more than willing to talk beer and brewing news. Tried to come back in around 11pm - and it was packed so tight, there was no way I was getting anywhere near the bar.

dchmela  (106) Orlando, Florida | December 23, 2008
70 beers on tap and 2 cask, an amazing selection. Old school wood bar with a nice relaxed ambience. I heard it gets crazy on weekend, but on a monday afternoon it was very chill. Very knowledgable bartender. If you cant choose a beer, get the sampler of four for 10 dollars, a real deal. A must visit in NYC.

Great selection. But $8 for a pint of Sierra Nevada Bigfoot? $9 for a 12 oz. bottle of Fullerís London Pride? Rip-off and a poor food selection. The great company that night made up for the manís shortcomings.

Stopped by The Ginger Man on a recent short trip to NYC. Went in early afternoon and only had an hour to stay. Very nice selection on draft, didn’t have time to even browse the bottles. Very clean and great ambiance. Wish there was something similar in Tampa. Staff very polite and helpful to my wife to help her with selection.
