|Blarney Stone||Mixed US sports and pretend Irish bric-a-brac crowds the walls of this friendly Irish bar, which had a genuine Irish barman when I visited. Food is served from a small counter at the front.||6th Avenue / 32nd Street|
|Diner on the Corner||A pleasant small bar serving a few domestic brews on draft is situated in the corner of this large diner. The breakfasts are good.||Broadway / W 32nd Street|
|Landmark Tavern||I happened upon this gem as I was leaving the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum. The traditional interior has a tiled floor and very nice dark wood panelling. There is also a restaurant area behind. I had an extremely nice IPA from the New Amsterdam Brewery.
This bar is used as a location in the TV series Spin City.
|11th Avenue / 46th Street|
|Snug Harbor Center||Not really a bar, but when I went to an open air concert here (Jethro Tull) the beer tent was serving some excellent brews from the New York Harbor Brewery.||Richmond Terrace, Staten Island|
|Times Square Brewery||There was a small ground level bar and then a much larger restaurant upstairs with an entertaining view of the frantic traffic. Beers brewed on the premises included a rather fine Bock. Excellent food and prompt service despite them being extremely busy. I'm not sure what the Concord on top was for!
This bar has now been demolished.
|Times Square / 42nd Street|
|Viva Pancho||The small bar at the front of this excellent Mexican restaurant serves only bottled beers.||Broadway / 44th Street|
|Arterial||The neon sign was broken on the front of this dodgy-looking bar so I may have got the name wrong.
Recently I have been in receipt of a message from this bar, objecting to my "dodgy-looking" remark and telling me that this is a "clean, well respected restaurant and lounge". Not having been in I can't comment on that but I stick by my description of the outside.
|Niagara / 4th|
|Players||A plain clean and tidy pub with pool table and miniature ten-pin at the rear. Two draughts include Michelob, plus the usual range of domestic bottles.||Niagara / 4th|
|Press Box||Niagara / 4th|
|Prism's||This typical hotel bar in the Days Inn is only open Fridays and Saturdays in the off season.||Main Road|
