I've never been to a better bar. The staff is excellent and the crowd and atmosphere is friendly and happy. I spent five days in NYC and two of them were here. Come for the trivia, stay for the karaoke.

A few of us stopped in at Walter's as it was close to the apartment we were staying at. Everyone there was very friendly and we had some great chats! Plus you can't beat the $2.50 cans of PBR! Very cool place.

I was out looking for a place to plug in, get some work done, and have a beer, and thankfully the "2 PBRs for $5 chalkboard" appeared in my peripheral. Cheap beer, nice homey vibe, friendly/attentive bartender, outlets, and free wifi. I'm sold. Thanks Walter!

I love this bar. It's my kind of place. Bartenders remember you. Customers become your friends. Darts to play, drinks to have, TV's to watch. You can bring your own food in or order a pizza. Lot's of seating since the new renovations. Easy access...More

Walter’s Bar has been around for 24 years, offering cold beer and a good time to Midtown New Yorkers and tourists alike. We have recently undergone a major renovation, but we’re now up and running and ready to welcome you back. We might have a new look, but we still have the same neighborhood feel. Conveniently located next to Madison Square Garden, Penn Station and the New Yorker Hotel, Walter’s Bar is the perfect place to hang out before seeing a game or catching a train.
