Wonderful pub close to Madison Square Gardens. We chose to have a few beers here before going to see Bon Jovi at MSG. We only had drinks but the food also looked fantastic. Serves a good selection of drinks , beers IPA's etc... would definitely recommend if you're in this area of Manhattan. Lovely atmosphere with an open frontage which... More

Found this place while wandering the City and found the staff to attentive, genuine, and welcoming. Really enjoyed ourselves over a couple of cold drafts. Nice place.

Stopped for a pint as I had some time to kill before catching a Penn Station train. Guinness was good! ($8) not much atmosphere, and not particularly friendly but pretty authentic Irish pub.

There is some "tourist food" on the menu, but if you stick with the specials or the core Irish items, you're going to be very happy. Irish hostess, waitress and I assume one of the matriarchs in the kitchen (can't say for sure). Leans towards the old-school style (Melba Toast in the cracker basket). The only possible negative was the... More

Just stopped for a beer, no greetings, the waitress didn't even look at me but came with insults off my countrymen...lots of better choices in the area - but off course cheaper here since you save money on tips!

My family has been to numerous "Irish Pubs" throughout the city and this one is off our list. You expect excellence in NYC for the price you pay. My Kahula with club soda was the color of weak iced-tea. Any real Kahula drinkers know how dark it should be. The club soda charge was $2.50 and the Kahula charge was... More

Went for dinner before Billy Joel concert . Only one block away for the Garden made it convenient. After being told of an available table ended up waiting 15-20 mins. Place is small and tables are tight. If you can get past that then this place is worth a visit. Service was good considering the kaios going on. Had the... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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 High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
