My criteria for a good midweek bar is pretty simple - reasonable selection of beer with good happy hour prices, above-average bar food (with good happy hour prices) and a comfortable atmosphere. Live music and outdoor seating are both a plus as well. All that being said, it shouldn't be a surprise that I find myself at the Red Lion at least one or two Tuesdays every month, for $3 Yuenglings, $0.10 chicken wings and a steady rotation of fun bands playing.

Has good, strong drinks, with nice waitstaff. The entertainment was always enjoyable, and the atmosphere was always welcoming.

No pressure to leave, or get another drink, or whatever. No cover (at least all the time's I've been there), and drinks reasonable (for Manhattan).

We were 8 women looking for something to do after a birthday dinner and we went for the live music and had such a good time we stayed til closing. The bands were great and so was the service. There is also a good mix of ages there literally from 23-55. We all said we would definitely go back.

Went there on a recent Saturday during a visit to the city. We had only intended to stay a couple minutes, but ended up staying a couple hours! The staff was SUPER FRIENDLY, and the band was excellent!! We had so much fun, and I highly recommend a visit there, you will not be disappointed!
