Re-live your frat boy days by drinking yourself blind at this authentic piece of New York realness. Eclectic crowd of NYU dorm types, middle age Silicone Alley millionaires, downtown creatives and further downtown Wall Streeters. Occasional west coast imports drop by for a quick Facebook...More

Stopped in with a friend for a few pints. They had perhaps 30+ on tap from all over. We tried a few, maybe more! Great service, small friendly place. Did not try the food.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
