Cross street: Btwn 48th & 49th (West Side of 8th Avenue)
Description: Occupying 3 enormous & well-realized floors in Hell’s Kitchen, this newcomer combo won't be hard to find. In the back of the 1st floor sits a sensible & roomy collection of tables where generous helpings from a full-service kitchen supports Social's exertion as a formidable all purpose haunt. A staircase that's been thoughtfully accented leads to a 2nd floor, which marks a half way point between the leisurely neighborhood dynamic of the first floor's pub & the 3rd Floor Cocktail space and Roof Deck. The west side of the second floor staircase houses a "Pub Room" with dark wood furnishings that complete a stylish interpretation of a modern & traditionally fused Celtic lodge hybrid, complete with a smaller bar that's highly serviceable but intended for its own private corner of this roomy complex.

We hit the Social almost every night during our five-day stay to NYC. It does get a little loud, but the service at this place is unparalleled. We didn't eat here--only grabbed a few beers--but the waitstaff treated us like old friends every time we came in. I seriously can't say enough good things about the service here! We'll definitely be back here, next time we make it to NYC!

This restaurant is too loud for us. We love to have fun, eat, drink and be merry. But we prefer to not have to scream at each other!
