Stopped in here Sept 14 in the eve. Bartender took several minutes to acknowledge us because she was too busy talking to a friend. Bar was not busy at all. She took our order, made our drinks and promptly went back to chatting with her friend. Never once came back to check on us. Finally waved her down to get... More

Minors allowed until 6pm. The front room and bar area was full - lucky us, we had the most observant and knowledge service ever. The beer (one flight and a wee mead) was excellent, we had wee crisps and sausage basket - that was very economic + tasty.

We were in New York for a long weekend and researched all the bars on trip advisor before the trip. The ginger man was the best one visited. Loved the interior and friendly atmosphere. The service was brilliant with the bar staff really knowing their beers, with over 50 to choose from, that's very impressive. A beer for everyone from... More

Go to the Gingerman if you like beer, and a huge variety of it! The atmosphere is great, although a little "business suity" in the early evening, but seems to change over to a more young adult crowd later. For a bar in Manhattan, this place is huge and the staff does a great job of covering the floor and... More

recommended by a local, this bar was perfect for meeting friends. Central location, very large (for NYC) and huge beer list. Didn't have food, but liked the menu.

Great place for happy hour. They have sooooo many different types of beer, it's fun to try new ones each time you go. It gets very crowded and it's always hard to find a seat. It's hard to go with a big group of oeople but it's great if you're in a small group.

Thank Dana S

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
