We used to go here when we lived in NYC in 2005 or so. It has definitely expanded but still great atmosphere. They pour the best Guinness. True Irish pub and not the kitschy tourist places. Go early and you'll see working people who are regulars. Late and you'll get more of the Nyu crowd.

I would probably become a regular here. This was a really cool pub with a nice atmosphere and a friendly bartender. Not to mention the continually awesome playlist. We enjoyed the old Irish pub feeling here and basic decor. It made us feel at home. Will visit again!

My wife and I spent some time hitting as many Irish Pubs as we could find in NYC. Spoiler alert: there are quite a few. But as someone who goes pub crawling in Ireland on a regular basis, I have to say that very few NYC "Irish" pubs actually felt like the pubs in places like Ennis or Kilkenny or... More

Being just that bit too old for clubbing, we wanted a place that was low key, but nice, with affordable drinks so we could settle in for the night. Well we certainly found it in The Four-Faced Liar. The atmosphere was wonderful and the bartender, an incredibly hospitable Irishman, was superb. The crowd was mixed, making the night fly into... More

This a great hole-in-the wall neighborhood bar. It's pretty big, though, and never gets too crowded. You can show up on Friday at 1AM and you can probably still find a place to sit.

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
