“Best bar on the UWS”

Really good pub food, an excellent selection of beers, scotches, etc. and a fantastic atmosphere make this the best bar on the UWS. I've been coming here for 25 years.

“When in New York.....”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

A friend who grew up in neighborhood took me to the Dive Bar on St Patty's Day....Wow! An authentic Irish bar filled with Irish families celebrating their favorite holiday! I lost track after 7 hours of fine beer, traditional Irish repast served free of charge, raucous banter and just plain fun. I think I was only person not related to anyone, but feel like I was after joining in on the celebration!

“Best bar in the neighborhood”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

"It's the best bar in this neighbourhood" said some guys i met the first night. They have lots and lots of beer from around the world, both on tap, and also in the bottle. There's Australian Coopers, Gluten Free choices , and kombucha as well. I Had a local Chatham maple amber ale. Brewed in a maple cask so it's served room temperature. Then had left hand nitro milk stout from Colorado. Great locals bar. Every time I go there I find someone to chat to. I've got my best advice of what to do in NYC from locals at this bar! From what I've seen, I really do think its the best bar/pub in the upper west side. Happy hour starts 5pm weekdays. It gets busy around 7 so go earlier if you want a seat.
