The Churchill, 45 East 28th Street in Manhattan

This spot pays homage to the 20th Century British leader and statesman, Winston Churchill.  Famous quotes are visible throughout the establishment and a framed painting of Churchill sits above the fireplace opposite the bar.  The space is divided into three areas: a front seating area, fitted with high-top tables, followed by the main bar area in the middle and the back makes up the dining area (with restrooms just beyond the dining area).  A dozen mostly-quality tap beers, along with some scotch and whiskey make the drink menu that Churchill would be proud of.  The food menu is a mix of English pub fare and some American bar food.  To quote from the bar’s website, “With a great staff, stone fireplace, and tuneful piano, The Churchill offers an atmosphere like no other bar/restaurant in New York City.”  Having visited nearly every bar in Manhattan, Pub Crawl NYC concurs with that statement.

12 quality taps. Definitely a good stop for a craft-beer bar crawl.
