    Confused so as to why this place only has a 7.9. It's great! The Dead Poet cocktail is so good, and you get to take the jar home! Grab yourself a rum and coke and get gelato at Amorino!

    Best little pub to catch whatever game is on TV (they’ll gladly change the channel for you) while enjoying a perfect Guinness with a surprisingly delicious Buffalo Chicken Sandwich.

    Guinness crowned with a shamrock, double cooked Thai chili wings, and great conversation with regulars and bartenders alike. Can't go wrong. Shouts out to K.C., Tim, and Matt. Make ya feel at home!

    A wide selection of Irish whiskey goes well with free popcorn, and the signature Dead Poet cocktail is lethal.

    This place has sentimental value to me. It was my hh bar when I was a teacher. When it’s crowded it can be frustrating to manage. The beer is well selected and the free popcorn is much appreciated.

    Small little pub in the upper west side. Patio for a pint and people watching. Was thinking this would be a cozy place to have a pint in the winter!

    The Gringo Nachos with pulled pork were amazing, and the toppings were really well dispersed. Not just cheese on top like you often get

    With some great house cocktails and a wide selection of beer on tap, it is a much more pleasant place to sit down and nurse a drink.

    Great, chill bar in between a bunch of fratty nonsense. Fantastic bloody marys with a great 2 for 1 deal on Sundays. Awesome old school rock too!

    Their signature Dead Poet drink is a must-try -- tastes kinda like grape juice, but the mix of 7 liquors will get you buzzed quickly. Bonus: you also get to take your glass home with you!

    Best little pub on the Upper West Side. Best Guinness in NYC and with 17 other brews on the cleanest taps around. Good eats too. Great staff, locals + worldly travelers = for fun days and nights.

    Small place. They have beer so that's good. Also if you drink 100 pints of Guinness at that bar you can get your name on the wall

    I love this place, but must share that we saw a bunch of baby roaches crawling on the walls last night. Still ordered food, though, because it's so damn good. Frying kills them, right?

    Order a Dead Poet & have a good night. Order a 2nd & have a GREAT night. But don't order a 3rd if you want to remember any of it.

    This pub-type bar has a very subdued, quite ambiance. Go here if you'd like to actually hear the person you're talking with. I recommend!

    If you can get past the narrow opening there's plenty of room to enjoy your beer in the back.

    Classic but narrow bar, probably one of the better ones in an area stuffed with bro bars.

    Never cater to a hater, just say later. Focus on people with good energy and good karma, it equals good times.

    Go here for the juke box and a chill bar scene. Decent food available from the co-owned joint across the street.
