That was the best place we stopped for a beer after a long walking tour around China Town and the lower Manhattan. I liked the interior with the taproom at front, walls covered by shelves with beers from top to bottom and the series of fridges at the back. We shared a fresh can of Sip of Sunshine.

Unique bottle shop bar combo. Draft list was a bit weak and trended to national brands. Bottles were interesting. Not a must stop, but if close might be worth seeing if anything good is available.

This is bottle shop and bar. It’s quite famous and old. There are a lot traditional beer from Europe (Belgium for example). But craft beer selection might be more modern.

Ambiance - nice location, very clean, bar was nice. A bit confused with the wall. Was confused as why opened stock, display was mixed. Looked and saw stuff I was bummed that was just memorabilia. Service - very helpful, not intrusive not standoffish. Selection - for a top rating in NYC I was rather let down. Better beer can be found in my small local market of Allentown, PA. Food - offerings are nice. Value - is one point, especially for the city. Overall it’s a nice place - just not for deep seekers.

Visited 11.5.16. This bottle shop that’s also equipped with a ~20 taps bar was not on our map, but my brother, who knows the place, brought us there. Quite well-lit, interesting tap list - we chose non-NY East Coast beers and I can’t recall the local/regional/national/import ratio. Plenty of bottles to choose from, including rather rare stuff. Friendly staff. The downside - they only serve pint-size and the prices are high. Still recommended.

Bottle shop that doubles as a bar, with 20 taps, offering flights and small pours of anything you want. Not the most exciting taplist, but some good ones to be found. The bottle area is towards the back. To be honest, I was quite disappointed with the selection. They had some good ones, but not much to be found of special releases / seasonals, mostly just regular beers by most of the NE breweries. Worth checking out, but as I discovered, Manhattan bottle shops are very underwhelming.

Good bottle shop, with good selections on tap. There are a few cold cuts for food, but it’s not a place to eat obviously. The number of bottles and new releases is fine. Good to visit once in a while, especially if you’re into beer trades.

Bar and bottle and shop in one. Ambiance is simple decor, light music in the background beer lining all the walls until you get to the back where the fridges are placed. Only small minus may be the metal stools, that can get cold on the bottom after a while. Bottle selection is 800 bottles plus with a selection of American and import. Sold in packs but also singles. A very light mark up for most bottles (less than a dollar). About 20 drafts or so with a very good selection for hop heads. They had a tap of Hill Farmstead while I was there. Also allow you to open bottles on premises. Light bar snacks such as pretzels and olives are also on the menu. Staff were friendly. One of the members had a can from Other Half Brewery (they do not distribute) and was kind enough to share the can. Overall, great place to stop by if you’re in the neighborhood looking for a good beer.

Visited May 2016. Very narrow width, but long front to back. Bar is on the left with around 20 beers or so on tap. Good variety of locals and regional brews. They do serve flights. Bottles are in coolers on both the left and right walls past the bar, with a wide range of stuff, both domestic and international, but no whales. In between the coolers are a few additional small tables to sit at. Low ceilings in the cooler area, so if you’re claustrophobic, this may not be the best place for you. Can drink beer from the coolers on site for an additional charge (~$2) or take home with you. Nice stop.
