Huge Irish bar near Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.
Directions – 1 / 2 / 3 / A / C / E train to 34th Street-Penn Station, exit from the station complex at 7th Avenue, walk east on West 33rd Street. Alternatively, B / D / F / M / N / R / Q train to 34th Street-Herald Square, exit at West 33rd Street and walk west.
This is a huge, tall-ceilinged Irish-owned bar with a rear upstairs section with balconies. There’s a large range of craft bottles to choose from, though mostly fairly common ones. Despite its size, it gets busy with the after work crowd, many of whom I imagine are stopping off before their commute home from nearby Penn Station. Madison Square Garden sports and concert arena sits over Penn Station, so this is also a handy stop before or after attending an event there. A number of the tap beers change on a strict calendar month basis, these tend to be the most interesting. There are two cask handpumps, with frequently changing offerings. A sister bar has opened in the Financial District. (4/2015)
