This place seemed to be a bit scruffy, in a lived-in sort of way. Dark interior, lots of wood. Long bar and plenty of tables to the side and in back. Beer list was OK, although a number of things on the list had ben tapped. Flights of four are available. Service was OK, wasn’t very crowded. Food was tasty enough.

Visited twice now, once in February 2009 and once in May 2012.

The first time I was here they had just finished with their cask festival, which I thought was a neat idea even if I can’t stand cask beer usually. They always have an interesting tap lineup and are open to letting you try things before you buy them. I tried several local beers from places I hadn’t heard of both times I was here. It’s great for trying new local beers but maybe not so good for trying the best of the nationally distributed brands (if you’d rather drink something you already know is good instead of trying something new).

Prices were a touch high, as to be expected in NYC. Service was very friendly, even if really busy. Only a block away from the empire state building if you want to see that.

Old wood and a bit of a dated bar. Patrons were almost all drinking macro and Cocktails. Service was nice and friendly, but not particularly helpful. Comfortable, but prices are a bit high at $16 for a flight. Lots on the tap list and so close to other locations, a stop is required.

First Manhattan bar stop of the day. Classic dark and wood heavy bar with beery paraphernalia behind the bar. The beer list was less than impressive on my visit. I take it that perhaps they had a Stone event or something of the like but there was over twenty Stone and Rogue beers combined on the draft list. No fault of the bar, I was just disappointed to not find more local beers on offer. I guess they like to please the NYC crowd here. I ordered the chicken wrap for lunch which was average. The overall service was on the slower side considering it wasn’t too busy. It’s worth a visit and no doubt the experience will vary with each visit.

A darkly lit place just minutes from The Ginger Man, this is another gem of a stop. A long bar, with fairly limited seating overall. Excellent extensive taplist. Custom flights available, ranging from $10-18 (depending on the price of the beer) for 4 x 5 oz. pours, which is insane for the upper end of the range. Very friendly service, attentive and helpful. Another mandatory stop when in the big city.

UPDATE: This place used to be much better than it is now. It’s above average but not world-class.

I’ve been to Rattle n Hum more than any other bar in NYC. You can simply tell that whoever owns the place loves and appreciates beer. The selection is excellent - 40 lines - plus an additional section of the bar dedicated solely to cask beers. The decor is dynamic and fun, ranging from craft beer banners to tongue-in-cheek signs to various writings in Gaelic. There are lots of TVs, for better or worse. Lighting is ample and appropriate. RnH usually has some special or featured beer, along with a bevy of other options that 40 lines makes possible. The food, too, is superb. I’ve had the sampler platter, the mini hamburger, and the chicken wings. I highly recommend the chicken wings. Prices are about what you would expect or perhaps slightly lower, especially if you capitalize on the specials, e.g. happy hour. Some aspects of the bar’s layout can be frustrating, such as the varitable gauntlet between the length of the bar and the parallel wall, but once you settle into a spot you should be fine. Service is pretty good. Bathrooms are clean and I’ve never needed to wait more than one minute for one. To close, Rattle n Hum is an exceptional bar that keeps it fresh and does everything amazingly well.

Visited most recently on a few evenings in late May ’12 but have been over a dozen times in the last 3 years or so since it opened. 40 taps of interesing beers from around the US allied to a strong bottled menu. They regularly have tap takeovers (on a Tuesday I think) and I’ve dropped on a couple including Founders (with most Breakfast stout varieties present) and Ballast Point. Happy hour cheap pours (most beers for $5 I think) between noon and 3 or 4. Service is always decent despite how busy it can sometimes get. Food also worth a look in. Great bar, a must on a visit to NYC.

Located in a fairly narrow building between Madison and 5th avenue, this place feels like what a craft beer bar in Dublin would look like. It’s dark with high ceilings and a big bar that had tellys turned to soccer. (Big plus on my book.) The walls were decorated in breweriana. Nice vibe though I’m guessing it could get loud at night. They had over 40 drafts thug on this day they had an unusual number of PA beers which is cool. The bartender was really nice and very thorough in her work being sure to sample beers on the wall she hadn’t has yet in order to accurately describe them. That’s the kind of dedication you like to see for your local and if this place is indeed your local than life is grand indeed.

Visited around 5ish on a Tuesday with MaxxDaddy. Place was pretty quiet when we first arrived, but it steadily filled up and got loud and boisterous by the time I left. Beer list was very solid, a bunch of new breweries to me, and really highly thought of beers. Service was attentive, despite the crowd. The mood was really good here, groups of people having a great time drinking great beer. I really liked this place.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Sports bar and craft beer joint. The bar is rather long and narrow with black walls. Not crowded at all during my early visit. Attentive staff and nice service. Draft beers shown on chalkboard and in a beer menu. More than 100 bottles as well. I focused on the draft list and asked for smaller pour, which is 8oz. (Would like to have 4-5 oz....) Many from Finback on draft, a tap take over recently? Anyhow, nice beers and a new brewery for me. (Visited June 22nd 2016)
