(Visited 10/2015): District Tap House is located in NYC on W 38th a couple blocks from Penn Station. Not sure about parking but I imagine it is impossible.
The inside opens into a large and dimly lit space with a long wooden bar along the right side and high top table seating opposite and past it. Large hanging globe lights, brick walls and patterns of framed wood on the walls all lend to a warm atmosphere. Tap handles are visible behind the bar.
There are over 50 beers on tap, from NY brewers like Brooklyn, Singlecut, Grimm, Big Alice and Third Rail. Other craft brewers like Cigar City, Gigantic and Avery as well. Over 20 bottled beers from domestic and international craft breweries too. Samplers are available.
Service on a relatively slow weekday lunch was good. The server was helpful with recommendations and samples and was efficient throughout our visit.
Food at District Tap House consists of upscale comfort food, sandwiches, salads etc. Our party all enjoyed our food.
Overall this is a solid bar to visit in NYC.

Quite large, or should I say long place with huge bar. Seems to be popular with business people, has a bit upscale feel to it. Quite dark, lights are dim. Also it's not a "pure" beer geek place since they pour Bud, Stella, Leffe and people drink that as well as the cocktails. Speaking of beer selection they do have a wide selection of taps (54 ATM) with interesting local and not so local beers. I had Equilibrium Vulgar Display of Flower. Also looking at their menu some Grimm, Pipeworks, Half Acre, Gigantic, Finback, but also lots of classics. Worth checking out.
Decent spot in mid-town. Feels like a corporate happy hour spot for sure, and reminds you of many other places in this neighborhood (I’ll be it with a better draft list than most). I feel like they have more Defiant beers here than anywhere else in the city, but that might be my imagination. They get plenty of good stuff rotating through here, and a good amount of the local stuff as well. Not a destination, but in the area it is a solid stop.
First stop in NYC (very close to Penn station). I loved this place. Selection on draught was very decent (lots of locals). Didn’t have any food. Prices were a tad high, even for NYC. Lovely interior as well. Overall I’d recommend this place for a quick first stop ;)

Big corporate type of place near Times Square. Big draft list of mostly local and mostly delicious stuff. Prices were high. But last place with Lambo Door so needed to hit up. Service was quick and pleasant. If you are visiting and your hotel is here or you work in this hell hole part of town worth a stop. Quick story this place has 60 taps and the dude who sits next to me asks to see draft list, then checks into untappd, then orders Miller Hi Life.
High ceilinged, well lit and roomy bar with over 70 beers on tap, as well as more bottles. Usual Manhattan prices but offers more obscure local brews as well as Belgian and German varieties. Nice place to spend some time
very good food and a nice BUT LIMITED menu. none of the so called greats around midtown can compete. food could be a nine. good assortment of taps maybe 40 with good beers represented and rotated. beers presented well the place is run right with some minor potential attitude issues at the bar though seemingly not on the floor. poised to the best of in New York and better than some of the recent has beens around town already. ambiance is really 4+ and service 7+. A BIG NYC SPOT.
