The Ginger Man
If you are a beer connoisseur as I, you will appreciate a pub with a large variety of beers to select from. I ran across The Ginger Man a while ago, so when Tal asked me where I wanted to go for our date night last night the idea of 70 drafts and over 150 bottles left no other choice.
Being a Wednesday night at 11:30PM it was very chill. There were a total of about 10 people there ( including us). The lights dimmed low, and the music wasn't too loud, it was very easy for Tal and I to converse without being interupted. Unfortunately the kitchen had already closed by the time we sat down however they do have food menu - and its delicious (try the pretzel or the twice baked potato)!
Whether for date night or happy hour after work, I really suggest checking out this place if you love beer. Located on East 36th Street and Madison avenue, its a close walk from the subway and a close walk to Bryant Park, so you could go ice skating after! Just a thought ;)
UPDATE: We came back two day's later, and found out you are able to purchase a small or large caraffe of any beer on draft or buy bottles to take home. #winning
