An impressive terrace with a view in one of the trendiest and most touristy places in town. What happens below is obviously of note, but upstairs is where the beer happens. Impressive place indeed, but certainly lacks the coziness of the places I’ve come to appreciate. The locally brewed beers are not devoid of interest in spite of the tourist trap allures and would make the trip worth it to the extent that you are visiting with people who may have other interests than beer or stay for an extended time in town. Pricey, but fair.
An amazing place on the rooftop of a building at the intersection of Broadway and 5th Ave. The service was exceptional. The food and beer were pricey. The rooftop experience was excellent. There is not much view except of the Flat Iron building across the street. The beers are marginal, but the offer other beers from Dogfish and the Burton Butan was outstanding. The shopping on the ground floor of Italian foods and restaurants I worth the trip.
Rooftop bar, somehow I’ve expected better views. However it is a nice place, away form the busy streets. Has a upscale feel to it, also rather expensive. Good selection, had some DFH beers. Not my sort of beer place, but may find it appealing.
Visited on Sunday 24/11/13 around 12.15 after mid day.
Just over from the Flat Iron this brewpub is located atop a high end Italian deli/food store.
You need to take the lift up to the 14th floor to reach it where you’ll find a roof top bar and beer gardem which was already pretty busy for a Sunday.
3 house beers available, all on cask dispense only - love that hand pumping shit in Merica! The samples in the 3 house taster I took were large, too large for ticking on my own tbh at 6oz and the beers were middle of the road to boot.
Other beers on keg included a Del Borgo offering plus a number of Italian craft bottles and some lcoal numbers.
House beer was $10 a pint, way way overpriced for what they were serving up.
Nice location, food looked good, perhaps the place to take your wife or girlfriend but for quality beer and choice - Nah !
Very large beerhouse type of setting with a medium sized bar; 3 housebrews and 10 guests on tap; exorbitant prices even for NY; very attentive and knowledgable staff. Couple of Italian beers on tap. I would come here again, but I’d make sure that I am not hungry the next time.
