Very close to the central park in the basement of a big glassy multi-functional building. Iíve been to this store a few times because of its convenient touristy location. Not the best beer selection of the NYC Whole Foods, actually, if anything it is probably the less good selection of the three main NYC Whole Foods. Nonetheless they had the likes of Elysian, Avery, Two Brothers, Captain Lawrence, etc. And of course the usual array of Belgian and imports. As for the non-beer stuff, itís Whole Foods, and this one is surprisingly big considering that its prime location and its basement arrangement. If you happen to be staying in the touristy area you will enjoy this store. If youíre beer hunting youíll probably want to skip this one.

Stopped on Sat. morning for a beer. The íOn Tapí bar opens at noon, lots of sitting places across long wooden tables, this place actually looks very nice. Selection is good, you can get a flight of 4 beers for $12 also lots of bottles to choose from. Overall OK.

After seeing Louis CK at the City Center, my wife and I walked a couple of blocks back up toward the circle and stopped in here for something to drink on the train home. The place is bigger than youíd expect as you come in, and feels fairly open. It was a bit tough finding the beer section, but finding the bar is quite easy. Didnít see the bartender when I stopped in there and didnít feel like waiting for whomever it was to come back out of the back, so I donít know if they do pint growler fills or not, but there were prices for pints through half gallons on the board, and you can drink there which is nice. Bottle selection in the actual beer section was good, not great, but I really would have liked to have seen more singles available. Probably more of a nit-pick sort of thing since the average beer consumer probably wants a six pack, but I usually want singles, especially for the train. Worth stopping in if youíre in the area, but the other Whole Foods (near New Beer) has a better selection if you can get further south.

Weak draft line up.....only about 8-10 taps, and they were all simple pale ales, brown ales, lagers. And they get you for $12 for a flight of four...ouch. Conversely, pints are are $5 across the board. The food is OK.

Nice selection of crafts, macros and imports. Unfortunatelyit is not possible to mix six-packs.A few smaller beers are sold separately. Nice bar in combination with the supermarket, where you can bring the food from the supermarket or buy pubfood from the menu. Good selection of beers here too. 10 taps. They do flights, 4 glasses for $12.

Somehow they managed to stick a decent little bar in this Whole Foods while at the same time having a really mediocre bottle selection. Iím not sure how they managed to pull that off, but they did. They only have about 10 taps, but they were a nice mix of local and interesting brews (a few examples from my visit: Brooklyn Marys Maple Porter, Nuggett Nectar, etc). I then headed over the bottle selection with the hope of picking up a half decent Captain Lawrence offering or something, and it is tiny and lacking anything really interesting. For example, the only Captain Lawrence was the Xtra Gold. The "On Tap" area is worth a visit, and sadly there arenít much better option in the neighborhood for bottles, but the bottle selection is pretty poor and the place is a zoo...

Not a destination but certainly worth a stop. I thought i had already finished my beer shopping, but I stopped here on a whim for lunch and surprisingly added a Cigar City Guava Grove and Humidor Jai Alai to my haul. Jam packed at all times, not a place in which to spend more time than you have to. Really donít understand how they can have a better selection at their bar inside the store and not have those bottles for sale. Also, sitting in a Whole Foods drinking is about one of the least appealing things I can think of.

Interesting place. Basement of the Time Warner building. Kind of hectic with people and very scattered in lay out. Big store. Beer bottle selection is decent, but not great. Shelf tags said they had King Henry which would have been nice, but I couldnít find it. No singles or way to break a six pack. At the complete opposite end of the store is the "On Tap" Bar. 8 taps, 1 beer engine/cask and 106 single bottles and/or cans. All beers from tap are served in pints (weather it be a 4% Hefe or a 10% Imperial Stout), sample size (4x 5oz pours for $12+tax), or in 32oz or 64oz growlers. Bottled beer selection is oddly different than the bottle side of the store (apparently a different beer buyer too). These bottles are not available to go (bummer). Staff at both the check out and at the bar were somewhat to very inattentive. Not a bad stop, but not a great one either.

I occassionally pick up a bottle from here when I happen to be food-shopping in the first place. Nice selection - nothing incredible but solid for a supermarket. They just opened up a bar, "On Tap" which has a more extensive bottle list and nice draft offerings. Iím not sure if thereís a separate RB entry for this yet.
