Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler!
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Bourbon Street Bar & Grill, located at 346 W. 46th Street in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen.
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Professor Thom’s, located at 219 Second Avenue in Manhattan’s East Village.
Since our last NYC pub crawl through Ridgewood in late 2014, we’ve learned of several new spots in that section of town. Specifically, we have our eye on Ridgewood Ale House, located at 57-38 Myrtle Avenue; The Bad Old Days, located at 1684 Woodbine Avenue and Julia’s, located at 818 Woodward. Over in Astoria, we hope to visit Front Toward Enemy, located at 40-11 30th Avenue and Fishtales, located at 38-14 30th Avenue. As always, after we’ve had a chance to visit these spots, we’ll share brief reviews of them in this space.
It’s been a while since we pub crawled through NYC’s Upper East Side. Several bars have opened in that part of town. On our next bar crawl there, we hope to visit, among others, Bayard’s Ale House East, located at 1549 First Avenue, and Uptown Local, located at 1606 First Avenue. After we’ve had a chance to visit these and other spots, we will share brief reviews of them in this space.
Continuing our thoughts on NYC breweries this week, we came across a recent piece from the Brew York blog containing information about all breweries currently in operation across the five boroughs of NYC. We’ve visited some of these breweries and we hope to visit all of them eventually. Perhaps as part of a long-term five-borough brewery pub crawl across NYC! What are your thoughts on the brewery scene in NYC? Leave a comment and let us know.
One of the first new NYC bars we hope to visit in the New Year is Strong Rope Brewery, located at 574A President Street on the Gowanus/Park Slope border in Brooklyn. According to its website, Strong Rope Brewery’s tap room is open Thursdays – Sundays, noon until 10pm. After our initial visit, we will have a brief review. Stay tuned.
Our Best Wishes for the new year. Our New Year’s resolution: More pub crawls in 2016!
Before 2015 comes to an end, we’d like to recognize our favorite new bar openings, one each for Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens (sorry, Staten Island and Bronx, we didn’t spend nearly enough time in those two boroughs in 2015). Manhattan’s McGettigan’s, located at 70 West 36th Street; Brooklyn’s The Hop Shop, located at 121 Columbia Street; and Queens’ Bierocracy, located at 12-23 Jackson Avenue. If you haven’t visited these three spots yet, put them at or near the top of your NYC bar to-visit list. We look forward to returning to these spots in 2016 and beyond!
Our NYC bar/restaurant of the day: Hill Country, located at 30 West 26th Street in Manhattan’s Flatiron District.
