Probably only ordinary bar we visited

We popped in for a quick beer and a toilet break not necessarily in that order. Just your basic bar and beer. Good selection of beers

The burgers and fries are excellent!!! Great location before catching a boat ride or if you want to walk the High Line. Atmosphere is fun and if you get seated on the patio that's a plus. A must!!!

While walking the high line we found this gem of a restaurant and enjoyed a delicious lunch here on their patio. It was a great stop and has a varied menu. Worth visiting!

Called in here for a drink. Asked for a draft beer that was advertised on the chalk board. They didn't have it. Asked for a bottled beer that was advertised on the chalkboard. They didn't have it. I was offered no alternatives by the barman whose attitude was bordering on extremely rude. Oh ... And the drinks weren't rang through... More

Stopped in for refreshments from the highline. Drinks are ridiculously expensive. Service was so rude that I left no tip. Would not recommend.

There are at least 5 good points to the Half King. (It was our (Drink Club NYC) first visit there. 1. It's far enough from the subway that wandering tourists will never find it! 2. There is a lot of space and an accommodating staff. 3. Hasn't everyone wanted to eat Buffalo Balls? (We had 3 orders.) 4. Nice-looking beer... More

First time in New York City. My girlfriend and I were hanging around after visiting the US Intrepid and skating at Chelsea Piers, with no schedule at all. We walked all the way through the High Line, and decided to have a brunch at the Half King. We ordered a nachos bowl with not much expectations and it was simply... More

I stuck my head in here after walking along the Highline for an hour. Glad i did. Amazing craft ale selection and from what I was told they do a breakfast burrito that is HUGE! The guy behind the bar was polite and nice to chat to.

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
