Dining style: Casual Dining
Neighbourhood: Midtown
Cross street: Btwn 48th & 49th (West Side of 8th Avenue)
Description: Occupying 3 enormous & well-realized floors in Hell’s Kitchen, this newcomer combo won't be hard to find. In the back of the 1st floor sits a sensible & roomy collection of tables where generous helpings from a full-service kitchen supports Social's exertion as a formidable all purpose haunt. A staircase that's been thoughtfully accented leads to a 2nd floor, which marks a half way point between the leisurely neighborhood dynamic of the first floor's pub & the 3rd Floor Cocktail space and Roof Deck. The west side of the second floor staircase houses a "Pub Room" with dark wood furnishings that complete a stylish interpretation of a modern & traditionally fused Celtic lodge hybrid, complete with a smaller bar that's highly serviceable but intended for its own private corner of this roomy complex.

GReat place to dine pre-theatre. Food was amazing, service attentive and they knew how to get you out before show times without making you feel rushed. There is something for everyone

The Social Bar is almost directly opposite the hotel we were staying at - the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square. We'd walked past a couple of times but after a show we elected to visit for late night drinks. We ended up having more than a few cocktails, enjoying some really good bar appetizers, and a massive amount of 1980's music which was pitched perfectly for this older crowd. The service was top notch and the damage from the bill was reasonable. We'd only wished we'd visited more than the one time. Recommended: Very much so.

We loved the nachos. Drink prices were very reasonable compared to others. A bit loud. Looks like it is a locals bar. Service was very good.

Right opposite the hilton garden inn and very good service. Great music and not bad prices either. Quite lively so maybe not so great with big groups looking to chat but good for a night out.
