I arrived in the Penn Station neighborhood a couple hours before my train dragging my large suitcase in the rain. I planned to go somewhere else in the area but given the weather I looked for a spot closer to the station. When I entered...More

Was early for the Ranger game last night so I decided to try this place since it is so close to MSG and has an outside area on the roof. We walked up to the outside bar/dining area and it was starting to get full...More

Went here to watch a game before a concert at MSG. The place was dead (maybe 10 or so people downstairs) so we figured it wouldn’t be an issue getting our game on one of the multiple TV’s. We must have nicely asked 5 different...More

I went to the Knick Game last week and stopped in to Local West for some drinks. The elevated, outdoor bar was a fun place to relax and watch the hustle and bustle on the streets below.

The menu was extremely limited as they only have burgers and no beers on tap upstairs. They also ask to hold your credit card when ordering anything but water. Good view of Madison square gardens but not good for anything else but drinks.

Wow - I've been to some shocking bars in my life but this one is up there as the very worst ever. Appalling choice of watered down bottled beer at stupid high prices. There are dead pigeons sat just feet away. The staff are miserable...More

COME ON! Local West, you need to do something about the staff at the rooftop bar. Visited the evening of 9/15. After waiting and waiting for service, I decided to go to the bar to get my own drinks. As I stood there with a...More

Service was very slow and not very attentive, with the exception of the woman who was clearing plates away (she was doing a great job)! Food was average at best - bland and basic. Just had beer to drink which was fine. Rooftop looked nice.

We got off of the train and walked out onto the street and looked up and there was this nice rooftop bar/restaurant! We walked in the front door and up a flight of steps to this adorable little rooftop bar. There were 7 of us...More

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
