Manhattan, NY / Dining

A tour of some great bars for lovers of good beer and a great atmosphere.

1. Kettle of Fish

Kettle of Fish

59 Christopher St Manhattan, NY, 10014

Get Directions

New York is a city of immigrants, so it’s fitting to start this tour of New York, by heading down below street-level to the Kettle of Fish for a slice of Wisconsin in the big city. Nice bar staff, a friendly crowd and a warm atmosphere. Sample a few of their 18 draft beers, shoots some pool or play a game of darts. The place has a great buzz whenever the Packers are playing!

2. Blind Tiger

Blind Tiger

281 Bleecker St Manhattan, NY, 10014

Get Directions

This cozy real ale bar has been a favorite for New York beer aficionados for many years – and has kept its character despite having moved from its original location further West. The beer selection is huge but don’t worry if you have no idea which one to choose, the bartenders are friendly and know their stuff and will be happy to make a recommendation. Their food is pretty good too – mostly sandwiches, salads and dips which go great with the beer. Get here early as it can get busy. In the winter you can grab a seat next to the roaring (wood-effect) fire.

3. McSorley's Old Ale House

McSorley's Old Ale House

15 E 7th St Manhattan, NY, 10003

Get Directions

Head East to McSorley’s. Opened in 1854, it is the oldest Irish bar in New York City. Walking through its doors is like being transported back in time. The floors are covered in sawdust, the décor is basic and the service can be brusque – it’s not a place for a lingering romantic encounter. It is, however, a great place to down a few drinks and kick off a bar crawl. The two beers they sell are served in small glasses. That’s right – two. They only serve McSorley’s Light and McSorley’s Dark – both pretty good.

4. Burp Castle

Burp Castle

41 E 7th St Manhattan, NY, 10003

Get Directions

After the noisy saloon-like interior of McSorley’s, unwind at Burp Castle. Burp Castle offers a wide array of Belgian and German beer in an old – some would say a little dirty – atmospheric environment. You get to enjoy your Kriek or Delirium Tremens in peace, as the bar-staff (and sometimes the other clientele) enforce a ‘low-voices’ policy with an admonishing shush.

5. KGB Bar

KGB Bar

85 E 4th St Manhattan, NY, 10003

Get Directions

Head a few blocks downtown for a bit of culture and entertainment at KGB Bar. Sip some vodka while listening to published authors read their work. This upstairs bar is a literary institution in New York where readings happen in a high-ceilinged bright red room adorned with Socialist-Realist Communist propaganda. Come here at 7pm on Sunday’s for fiction, Monday’s for Poetry and other readings most Tuesday’s, Wednesday’s and Thursdays.

6. Von

Von

3 Bleecker St Manhattan, NY, 10012

Get Directions

Close the evening at Von – a gem of a bar with a euro-Bohemian, shabby-chic atmosphere. Choose from a range of Belgian or German beer or one of the three-dozen wines available by the glass. Flickering candles, café tables, faded but comfortable wingchairs and cozy nooks upstairs, cool hip-hop lounge downstairs. This bar has grown with its popularity over the years, first taking over the next door space then the basement making it an architecturally eclectic space, with lots of places to hide. “Happy,” the friendly pit-bull dog has been a fixture since the early days.
