This is a decent place for a quick drink. I came here a few weeks ago to meet up with a buddy and we had a good time. There's plenty of space inside and it's very welcoming and cozy. Beer selection on tap is okay, nothing to write home about, but they have Guinness on tap, so that always helps.

My wife and I stopped in to the Gin Mill when we were visiting her sister in the Upper West Side. The three of us went here to get dinner and drinks. It was a Friday evening so it was crowded, but the atmosphere was still good. The food was good. I had a burger and my wife had macaroni... More

Found this when looking for a drink and snack, barmaid was friendly, drinks half price until 8.00, plate of natchos to die for. In what is generally a very expensive area this was a little fine.

Went with friends prior to a concert at the Beacon Theater. Ordered a couple of pitchers of beer along with some apps and then burgers. The burgers were cooked perfect and tasted real good. Had tots with them. Give it a try. I'll go back if in the area again.

Went here for a bachelor party which included dinner and 4 hour open bar for $100 which seemed to be a decent value for NYC. The service was good. Place was pretty loud and just a typical bar, nothing special.

I was looking for a bar that was a less expensive place to drink and stumbled across Gin Mill, it said happy hour from opening until 8pm. Thinking there must be some sort of catch I went in with a open mind wondering what the catch was. I got a beer and was surprised it was just as it said.... More

Hated the gin mill, the wait staff was very grumpy and rude. They took our credit card as a bond, told us we could still pay cash but afterward refused to do so.

We went on Wednesday around 5 for a drink. Bartender was friendly and 1/2 price drinks were great. I think on Wednesdays the 1/2 price special lasts all night so it makes drinking at a bar in NYC affordable! Nice bar atmosphere.

I went here with friends because the drink and food prices on a Saturday afternoon simply couldn't be beat by any neighboring places. Make sure to get the fries and a double of whatever you're drinking.

This place never disappoints! 1/2 price bar almost all day! TV's everywhere and the bar food is great. Probably the best nachos I have ever had. My wife and I are 50's so at time we are the oldest in the bar as it really gets crazy with the younger crowd as the night goes on. But if you want... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
