Very small, limited menu and very slow service. This place recently transitioned to a Founders brewery beer only establishment. Founders is great but very limited considering other pubs in the area that offer so much more. There are so many other option that you would really need to try first.

Stopped in for a quick visit. There is a good selection of craft beer, but not an overwhelming selection. Really good appetizers to fill in the gaps. Did not visit the location in Hell's Kitchen since they were having trouble with the taps. Visited the other location. Really friendly bartender and neighborhood pub atmosphere.

The Pony Bar is a somewhat small bar located in Hell's Kitchen. It has a good selection of independent brewers, served from the tap. The food menu is rather small but tastefull. Nice place to relax and have a beer after walking around in NYC.

Many different beers on tap. A good variety of crafts beers which are changed often. They also serve a food menu.

Great little bar! Good selection of beers. Sound system was very nice. Could use better seating than stools next to barrels. That was a little uncomfortable.

But firstly, be aware that its all wooden interior so does make for more noise than usual at times with raucous behaviour and stupid (e.g. dropped glass on floor and middle-aged guy who'd dropped it then stomping loudly around it in a sort of "dance") from some elements. Secondly, and this I do not like, is that you are not... More

We went to this bar for happy hour, and we sure left happy :) This is a great microbrewery with 20 different options on tap (no bottles). The cost was amazing - $5! The staff were funny and friendly and it was just a great time. We even took one of their **64 OZ** growler to go! Good think we... More

This is a great bar. It is very loud but has great atmosphere and an extensive craft beer menu. We had the lamb sliders and they we're fantastic I could have eaten another order. We were told that they employed a proper chef to do the bar food and it was certainly obvious the food was cooked by someone who... More

Stopped at this place for some brews and was surprised with some good nosh as well. Grilled cheese was delicious and far larger than the ones I grew up with as a kid! Great beer selection with a nice variety of styles.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
