Open air pub concept is already a great concept in my head as I enjoy fresh air a lot. The ambience was great. Company of friends and family will be even more happy.

This was our second visit. Nice spot overlooking Bryant Park. Drinks are New York priced "expensive!" but overall worth it.

We just found the open air bar at Bryant Park. Great please to enjoy some drinks. Service is attentive, you can help yourself as well at the bar. Downturn, more or less no restrooms available. Nevertheless do not miss it.
