8th Ave. btw 18th and 19th St.

The craft beer industry has made it’s way to Chelsea.  This new bar has a lot going for it: spacious, friendly staff, and a good mix of all different crowds.  All the beers are above craft, and seem a little pricier than normal, even during happy hour.  Above average beers, above average prices, taste fine.

Used to be The Parlour, and whatever they’ve done they’ve finally figured out how to draw a crowd to this place.  Still a big spot, but it definitely feels warmer than its predecessor, and not as stuck up.  That’s not to say that the crowd isn’t, it being a mix of business kids, B&T’s, and anyone else in their late 20’s.  Service handles the crowd well and is friendly, above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.

A step up from the old Walter’s, a step down from really any other bar nearby, this place is a little low rent, but at least it’s quiet.  Small space, crowd is a mix of everyone young and old, and the service is decent.  Average beers at average prices, taste fine.

Used to be Blarney Stone, one of several in the city, but now it’s been spruced up a bit to resemble a more welcoming spot.  This place draws an above 30’s crowd after work, as it;s definitely one of the quieter spots in the neighborhood (I’m including everything near Penn Station and 10th Avenue as “the neighborhood”).  Space can be a little tight, but ther’es usualyl a seat open at the bar, food is good, service is friendly, average beers at average prices, taste fine.

Used to be the Irish Times, and now it’s not, but by name alone.  Still the same sports bar with plenty of TV’s for your viewing pleasure, still is multi-leveled, still alot of space to move around.  Beers are even the same, though the service got a little slower.  Average beer at average prices, taste alright.

While it has the feel of a restaurant, anyone eating was crammed into the few tables into the back.  The long island table (you can sit all around it and it’s in the middle of the bar, not though it might actually be made in Long Island) was filled with drinkers, as was the bar.  Very bright space with a crowd in their late 20’s-early 30’s, nice place to hang out for pre-dinner drinks, or after dinner for that matter.  Bottled beers, cocktails and wine, average prices, taste fine.

I can only think of two reasons two come here: you’re staying in the hotel or going to Penn Station.  There really isn’t any other reason.  Horseshoe bar that is home to either guests or random work groups.  Not much too it, small space, restaurant space in the back (though I cant vouch for the food)…I really don’t have anything else.  Average drinks at average prices, tap lines need a cleaning.

Chelsea Piers – 18th St. and West Side Highway

If you’re done with your bucket of balls or finished taping Law and Order, this spot on the Hudson River is one of the further west bars in the city that is a decent place to hang out.  After playing the game of “which pier do I walk down (58), dodge cyclists and cars trying to park, this hidden bar has a decent amount of space, usually quiet, sports on TV, and you can even get a tour of the brewery.  Honestly, it’s really for the first two groups mentioned, but if you really want a trek, its an alright spot that has a little outdoor seating.  Above average beers (home grown), slightly above average prices, taste alright.

Underground bar located beneath Chelsea Market.  While it’s actually well decorated (reminds me of the City Hall subway tunnel…with booze) and pretty easy to get into, the clientele is full of business kids and B&T’s, packing this place to the gills.  Pretty good spot otherwise.  Bartenders do their best to keep up, as do the table staff, but be prepared for a hot (temperature wise) night out.  Above average beers on tap, slightly above average prices, taste fine.

Could be the most non-pub looking/sounding pub I’ve ever been in.  So, taking away the name, it’s pretty much half bar and half eatery.  While you can sit anywhere and just drink, the back and middle row is where the great smelling (and tasting!) food is going.  Almost comes off as an eatery with a bar…I’m talking myself out of this being labeled as a bar as I write this…too late, too much has been typed.  Above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.

A Hammer’s bar (UK, not MC) in Chelsea that is every bit as crowded as its 7th Avenue neighbors.  While it does have the advantage of two floors, this placed was packed on a work night.  Crowd ranges from young to B&T to old, and each group winds up staying for a while, so good luck finding a seat.  Plenty of TV’s that are tuned to every sport on earth (sometimes this needs to be cut back when a main event is on).  Average beers at average prices, taste fine.

After finally finding the right staircase to bring me upstairs, I found what is basically a big hall, with trees, and a really tiny bar crammed into one corner.  No taps, so it’s all bottles or cocktails in this joint.  Lots of seating and lots of standing room at least for the event I was here for.  Cocktails and beer are a little above average prices, taste fine.

For the record, I didn’t see anyone eating in here, only the bar was packed, so I’m going to review it.  Went in on a weeknight, every chair at the bar was taken, and was definitely a mid-40’s crowd, quiet, kept to themselves…this actually made it a decent place to grab a drink.  The service is good, if you can’t sit at the bar there isn’t much more room to congregate, there’s another room downstairs for bigger groups who like their drinks delivered.  Above average taps (Blue Moon, etc.) for slightly above average prices, taste fine.

This place was not too bad.  Sure I wouldn’t meet anyone that I could date in here, but it was a lot of fun to hang out.  There’s a lot of space upstairs, but this floor gets crowded, so thankfully there is more space downstairs at the quieter bar.  And it’s one of two places with sports on TV in the neighborhood.  Good music, average drinks at average prices.

I don’t award for style points, and though I won’t start here, I guess it’s trying something?  Perhaps bar of the future?  European?  I liked this small bar, tucked off of 8th Avenue and wedged in between some restaurants.  Decent amount of space, tables in the back, and a good happy hour.  Never a large crowd, but there’s always someone else in here, average prices for your average taps, taste fine.

Tenth Rail (10th Ave. and 33rd St.)

Was sad that I couldn’t make it in here when it was Finnerty’s, so I can’t compare.  I can only imagine it was better as a dive, because I was not feeling this place.  Shiny, clean, bad DJ, annoying crowd (right out of college kids).  Bartenders were aloof, average prices for average tasting pints.

Okay, after endless twists and turns, I made it to the elevator and upstairs (bring breadcrumbs to find your way back).  Big space, great view, excellent 80’s DJ.  That being said, the crowd is the crowd who likes to visit the new hot spot of the day and the beers are expensive bottled beers ($10 for a Bud Light!?!).  Bottle service, table service etc, if that’s your thing.

While it’s a mirrored layout of Local on 33rd, it’s a completely different set up.  They’re going for beachside cabana/Mexican cantina…riiiiight.  So let’s start with what is Mexican about it, the margarita’s…basically a non alcoholic sno-cone in a glass.  As for beer, average tasting taps at average prices, attractive staff, pretty easy to get a seat.

If I’m classifying Rose O’Grady’s a bar, I have to count this too.  It’s quiet, outdoor seating up front, and a bit more emphasis on eating…I’m talking myself out of this even as I write it!  A good sized bar, TV’s, nice bartender, lot’s of staff moving around behind you.  I would classify this place as more for the locals who want a quiet drink and do not want to go a few blocks south and dive into the meatpacking insanity.  Regular pints, taste fine and at average prices.

The uptown bar of the same name is possibly my favorite bar in the city, so I had high hopes of a similar bar…as disappointed as my parents on report card day.  So there’s a good amount of space, it’s definitely a B&T bar, but $8 for a pint, come on!  I was one of the few people in here around 11PM on a Thursday, plenty of TV’s, still looks brand new in here.  It just didn’t entice me to ever come back in here unless the bars on 8th are overcrowded.  Above average prices for average tasting pints.

While I enjoy the attempts at new speakeasies, I always feel bad for the store that you skip past, as I completely ignore their wares for beer inside.  Anywho, through the door, a decent sized space, good amount of space to sit, but they have to have the servers lose the flappers outfits.  It’s not actually the 1920’s, nor is the guest list exclusive, nor the patron’s dress indicative of anything pre-1998, so the gimmick in unnecessary.  Nitpicking aside,  prices were surprisingly average prices, service was very good, and there’s a giant tub in the middle of the back area which I’m sure will be filled with drunken bodies or vomit in no time.

Another bar to cash in on the MSG/Penn Station crowd.  The problem with this place is that it’s not really welcoming.  It’s just a big square room with high booths.  I mean, that doesn’t make it a bad place at all, just a little sterile when compared to its neighbor’s on 7th.  And it’s also a lot darker…toss some lights in there and you got something!  But now, to its perks: Lot’s of TV’s, beers average prices, quick service, mixed crowd.

Alright, this place is borderline, but the lounge was the main draw for everyone when I went in here.  I think people were only eating because they wanted an upscale place with the potential for fancy food instead of the pub grub surrounding.  That being said, this place is tiny, and there are obstacles all over the place.  Drafts were to the high end of average prices, tasted fine, service ok.

So perhaps I’m partial to this bar because my RA from college was a bartender here.  If you come here with a bunch of guy friends, which is the crowd you’ll normally see, it’s a pretty good time, especially if you want to get away from the posh-ness of the surrounding Meat Packing district.  The beers are decently priced (and usually poured down your throat by the staff), taste fine and the staff is entertaining enough for me to put up with the crowd.

Probably my favorite bar on this side of Penn Station.  It’s quiet, even with the decent sized crowd.  Service is great, pints taste good and at average prices.  You do have your couple of locals sitting at the bar, and yes, your B&T’s from Long Island might take one too many steps down 8th to wander in here, the vibe is good and under control.

So there aren’t many bars this far over in this area, which usually means everyone goes there.  Everyone and their mother.  This place is always crowded and they just don’t have the fast service to handle it all, even if you’re sitting right at the bar.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good space (with lots of it), and the beers taste good and cost average prices.  There’s just too many people that never leave so good luck finding a seat.

There aren’t a lot of bars in this neck of the woods, thanks to the nearby clubs, so this is a nice place to step away from the chic.  The service is good and there’s plenty of space to sit with friends.  The beer tastes good and are average prices.  You really only get locals here because most offices stay on their side of 8th.

A smaller bar near Penn Station and definitely the most quiet.  It’s a tiny bit of a dive but it’s a good get away from the college crowd of the neighboring bars.  The service is fine and they have your normal beers with average prices, mainly older locals.

There aren’t many bars in this section of Manhattan, but I still wouldn’t go back here.  Possibly the un-friendliest bartender I’ve ever had, and he thought he was being nice.  The taps were good, average prices, the muted TBS movies on TV were not enjoyable, and the crowd was just a bunch of freshly over the hill guys.

Your standard pub, though a tiny bit fancier than most, it’s probably the one I go to the least in this Penn Station stretch, but it’s by no means a bad place.  They have your typical beers which taste good at your average prices, but the service is kind of slow, especially if you grab a table and need a refill.

This place can fill up fast, though mostly because of a lack of space.  If you can’t get a seat in the front or at the bar, you just find yourself being shoved around.  On the other hand, they have cheap to average priced beers that taste fine and Tater Tots, so all is forgiven.

Penn Station btw McDonald’s and the LIRR ticket booth

Excellent place for one last drink before heading home on the LIRR, like me who takes the fast ride to Woodside and hope they don’t take your ticket.  There is a lot of space in this bar, though the back always feels a little shady, and some of the people who are in here are definitely suspect.  At 27, I definitely felt young in here, and you would think there would be a bigger TV in here to show what’s going on upstairs.  The bartenders are pretty speedy, the beers are average prices and taste fine.

Definitely one of the more adult bars in the neighborhood.  This place is always packed, whether it be with pre-gamers, business people, or families, I have never walked in here without being packed in.  Sometimes this is good, sometimes I head right back out the door.  The staff is very friendly and tries to keep things moving, the taps are good and the prices are average.  Between here and Local across the street, you feel like half of  Long Island is at this intersection.

I don’t know how to write up this bar without getting people in trouble, so I’ll tip toe around it.  A very college crowd and the few old people who like to hang out with them.  Prepare to be ambushed by drunken college girls batting their eyes for a free drink and then moving on (I used my words to make her cry for attempting that).  There’s a decent amount of space here, the drinks are average prices to keep the FIT kids coming in, and luckily the bouncers keep an eye on people getting too drunk because I guarantee, you will all get too drunk here and make an ass of yourself…I’m looking at you LIRR riders.

Velvet rope, minus 1.  And the fact that I can barely see inside, minus ½ point, but it’s not completely unbearable.  It’s basically a famous person sighting away from being a club, so it’s still a lounge, even though there’s bottle service lurking.  The drinks are roughly your average prices, the drinks taste fine, but it can get a little crowded in here.

This place was an extremely borderline club/bar, but I’ll let it slide as a bar because no one was really dancing.  Tons of space, not enough where you’ll feel lost, and a pretty good social scene.  There were enough bars to accommodate the big crowd.  For those who don’t want to blow a paycheck in the Meatpacking district a few blocks south, this is an okay substitution.  The beers were average to slightly above average prices and tasted fine.

Definitely a great place to meet before a game (though it can get crowded) or at the very end of your night (great quiet place to end your night).  There’s not an incredible amount of space here, because of all of the booths.  It’s really hard to get the bartenders attention when it’s crowded, but that has everything to do with the suits not moving away from the bar and letting you get a drink.  The taps taste better than most and are your average prices.

Looks like a dive bar on the outside but don’t be fooled; it’s a dive bar on the inside as well.  The bar room is next to non-existent, the music is way too loud and crappy, and it is impossible to find a place to sit.  They do have a 2 for 1 happy hour drink special and incredibly hot bartenders, but it’s not worth the chance that you’ll be mugged or have plaster fall on your head.

Definitely the “hippest” of the Penn Station bars, this place gets very crowded.  There is an upstairs outdoor deck that offers no relief from the crowds.  The drinks are your average prices, taste fine, but good luck finding a waiter or getting one of the Eastern European models behind the bar to serve you quickly.  The faster bar is definitely upstairs.

I like this bar, but for some reason the bottled beer is a little off.  The taps on the other hand are much better.  The prices are average to just barely slightly above average and the taps taste fine.  The staff is friendly and more than willing to accommodate your sports watching needs.  The crowd is late 20’s and up and can get pretty lively after work.

This place is huge and there are a ton of TV’s.  After that, well, you’re going to cough up bucks to drink.  I mean come on, $7 for a pint of Yuengling and $6 for a Bud Light?  Luckily their food was actually kind of cheap but for those going to here to drink, bring your wallet…what am I saying, it’s all B&T’s here so you can afford it.  Beers are above average prices, taste fine, service from the bartenders is kind of spotty unless you’re sitting at the bar and not standing behind the seated patrons or are an attractive girl.

Not exactly sure what to say about this bar except that it’s pretty much like the rest of the Seventh Avenue Penn Station bars.  Big inside with lots of TV’s and a good selection of beers.  A little more crowded later in the night but that’s probably because it’s only one block away from the trains instead of two blocks away.  The beers were average prices, tasted average, lots of tables.

A very spacious gay bar in Chelsea.  In fact, a little too spacious.  One of my friends was there to meet people, but unless you’re crowded around the bar, everyone is sticking to their own groups.  My girlfriend was definitely the only girl there, so straight guys, no hags to be found.  The mixed drinks were a tiny bit over average prices, but the beers were normal prices and they tasted good to me.

Get here before sundown; otherwise, good luck.  Came here after work one day, found a renovated barge with two tug boats attached to the pier, parked myself and my coworkers right on the bow of the boat.  The beers came in buckets, not priced too much over average, and we took up a good amount of room so as to not be bothered by others.  Pretty good, right?  Came again a week later, and much later in the night, and this place turns into a shit show.  No room, people falling all over each other, and the most expensive non-alcoholic sangria.  Toss in no room to move and no more waterfront views due to darkness and it becomes a place to be missed.

The sports bar of Chelsea?  Well, I guess the straight one at least.  This long bar has plenty of room and plenty of TV’s for all your sports watching, but since McKenna’s relocated and cleaned up down the block, the locals have congregated here to mix with the college kids.  The pints taste so-so, at a less than average price, and the bartender make sure you always have a new beer coming.

This is so close to being a restaurant, but the amount of TV’s in here and the amount of standing space made me hang out here before a Knicks game and call it a bar.  That and you can skip the food here, it’s not mandatory to eat.  An older crowd comes here, mostly other Knick fans (all 5 of them) that need to feed their kids so they don’t drop $6 on a hot dog in the Garden.  The beer tastes fine, average prices, and the staff is pretty friendly.

Definitely the cleanest of the Blarney Stones.  It’s also one of the bigger ones too.  There’s really a bunch of locals in here and not much, if any, of the B&T or F.I.T. crowd that frequent the neighboring bars.  The crowd is older, the music selection blows (a little too techno/clubby for a pub) but the service is really friendly.  Beers taste good, average prices, plenty of TV’s.

With the exception of the Blarney Stone next door, this bar is all alone on the West Side.  One of the few bars that still allow smoking (the owners being the only employees from what I’m told), this small bar is a nice place to hang out with good music in the background.  The bar usually has a decent sized crowd, the beer is average prices, tastes fine, and the place friendly enough to make the trip to 9th Avenue worth it.

22nd St. btw 7th and 8th Ave.

If you’re a gay man, and just want to drink at a gay bar (not a lounge or club), then go here.  I was brought here (my friend says he goes to enough of my “Muggle” bars so I owed him one) and actually found a nice place to drink.  Bonus points for the bride and her bridesmaid in the back, though I found out gay men make the worst wingmen.  The drinks were reasonably priced, tasted fine, and the atmosphere was very relaxed.
