44th St. btw 6th Ave. and Broadway

For being a stone’s throw away from Times Square, this bar is kind of bland.  It’s just…I don’t know…nothing really remarkable but not a bad place either.  Was kind of quiet on a weeknight, plenty of sports on TV, a good amount of space for people to sit.  The crowd in there was a mix of work groups getting tanked, people wandering by that decided 6th Avenue was too far, and some people sitting by themselves at the bar watching sports.  Beers tasted fine, average prices for average pints.

44th St. btw 6th Ave. and Broadway

This place uses to be St. Andrew’s, a nice and quiet bar that felt very homey.  While its layout of tables is still the same, it’s been spruced up to look like a place trying to hold onto a quaint feeling but jumping into the future with flash.  Still has the long bar (that oddly vibrates non-stop), staff is good, mixed crowd of tourists and midtown workers, and plenty of space.  Drinks are average prices, taste alright, and your average taps.

46th St. btw Vanderbilt and Madison Ave.

Sometimes, not every roof top needs to have a bar.  Some positives about this space is that the crowd is extremely diverse, from tourists/hotel guests to business people old and young, and the beers are priced around average.  The negatives are there’s really not much to look at, the narrow space is extremely cluttered with furniture, and I wasn’t sure if I was going into the Fort Knox or a bar because that is a ridiculous amount of security/ear piece talking/dark hallways to get to this place.  Beers are the high end of average while drinks are above average process, beers taste better than the drinks, service is good.
