Description: The Keg Room is an up-scale casual American-Irish Bar and Restaurant located in New York City. Opened by Mary and Joe Carty on December 3rd, 2012. It is a welcoming and exciting place with beautiful Celtic decor. Its center rectangular island offers three of its sides to its patrons, becoming one of the largest bars in New York City (over 100 feet long.) With 48 beers on draft, 40 bottle beers, several rotating seasonal beers, an enjoyable delicious food menu and 25+ TV screens complemented with four large screen projectors. The Keg Room is an ideal place to hold your next group-event whether it's a fundraiser, birthday, retirement, holiday or corporate parties. The Keg Room is conveniently located in the heart of New York City (36th Street, between 6th and 5th Avenues.) If you are staying in New York City, there are five hotels on our street and several others within walking distance. If shopping brings you to the Big Apple, The Keg Room is only a block away from MACY'S, Lord & Taylor, and several others stores in Herald Square. For the sport and concert fans, the Madison Square Garden is located within walking distance (two blocks away from us). For a taste of New York, we are a short distance from The Empire State Building and Bryant Park Parking couldn't be any more convinient... Right Next Door To Us! Several other Parking Facilities in our immediate area.

The beer selection is great and the build out is pretty nice. But you can tell they just opened. The menu had typo's, the waiter did not know a lot about the menu. He was very nice, and it looks like they are trying. But it is new, and feels like it. With some practice I can see this getting better. But for now they are out of practice. Very much bigger than it looks from the outside.

The food was okay.
very big new bar where the manager stalks around like John Cleese.
It was okay though as we went back twice.

Doesn't look much from outside, but opens out into a huge well laid-out bar with tables st the rear. Staff are consistently friendly, helpful and there are plenty of them.
Wide range of beers and good food menus - all freshly cooked to order and seriously above average pub food.
I would recommend to anyone in the area.
TripAdvisor please note your map pin is way off - the bar is along W 36th, nearer the 6th Ave end

We had some drinks there before our reservation was due in a restaurant in the very same street (Keens Steakhouse). They have this huge selection of beers from all over the world, coming in fancy and personalized glasses. We were there during happy hour, so the atmosphere was very lively! Love it!
