    Newly reopened after a vandal set it afire, the Pony is back with a big front window that opens, new beer boards, soundproofing (it helps some!), & new beer taps. Same great bartenders!!

    The pony bar have the best craft brewed beer.. I really love this place my #1 pick out of all the bars in Manhattan! Have some soft pretzels made w/beer batter and a crafted brew ladies as a starter!

    The All American Club, for which you have to taste and rate 100 beers, are a mark of true NYC beer-geekery. Be sure not to miss happy hour, which is only a single hour, starting at 4:20 p.m.

    The Pony heads east! $5 beers, 20 rotating craft brews on tap, 2 casks, and great food... everything you came to expect at their Hell's Kitchen location. When they ring the bell, yell "NEW BEER!"

    Beers are a great place and they have a wide selection of non-typical brews. All of the sandwiches/meals are priced under $12-$14, you can't beat that! Quality and creativity is excellent.

    Perfect chill bar for beer lovers. Strong and solid craft beers, friendly knowledgeable bartenders, jugs of beer to take home (and bring back to refill for a discount).

    I'm a cocktail gal & we had a group consensus: my beer-loving friends love & approve of beer selection + $5 HH beers but agree Happy Hour should be longer than 1 measly hr & should include cocktails!

    Jeff is an amazing bartender! Super knowledgable about his craft beer and just a great conversationalist in general ! The beer selection varies...it's a great atmosphere to chill after hours.

    $5 for every single draught beer (just the glass size varies.) Lots of incredible craft beers to try. Always something new on tap too. When one's kicked, a new one's up, so get em while you can.

    Great selection of 20 rotating craft beers but pricey cocktails & a crappy 1-hr daily 4:20-5:20pm Happy Hr meant for people who only like beer & don't really work. Definitely not the greatest HH spot!

    Get the avocado, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, but ask for the chicken sandwich sauce instead of mayo for a little kick.

    Great prices ($6/beer across the board), and amazing beer selection. If you're lucky to get here while a Third Rail Beer is on tap... Have one, they're great.

    The bar that every other bar on the UES needs to be. Can't beat those rotating craft brews. Snag a table and camp out all day/night and try them all.

    Great variety of craft brews. Happy hr from 4:20 of o 5:20 $5 beers. Liked that the bartender took me on a craft brew progression.

    This place is awesome if you like Craft Beer. Have a Third Rail beer if they have them! Field 2 or Bodega, you can't go wrong!

    They have all of the beer and at a good price. The food is basic. But back to the beer...if you drink beer you must check The Pony Bar out.

    Hands down the go to for craft beer lovers on the UES. It's least crowded on snowy weekend afternoons. Happy hour is $5 drafts.

    The best American craft beer bar in the five boroughs, Pony's constantly rotating 20 taps are a sight for any craft fan's sore eyes.

    Great selection, but pass this place by and go to Rattle & Hum where you can actually taste some beers and can order flights rather than full pints.

    Order some craft beer. Eat the yummy sausage sandwich with bacon sauerkraut. Lose your hearing due to how loud it is inside. Good times!
  • The Blonde Gourmand
    Only American brewed craft beers on tap here. When the run out they switch it out with something completely different - no repeats! I love this bar and I'm not a big beer girl...

    Beer selection is great. The menu looked great but the Duck Sliders and Buffalo Chicken Perogies were disappointing for the price. Would not order either again.

    For such a great place with a wonderful selection, they are selling the customers short by not offering flights.

    If you're here for the beer, do yourself a favor and go to city swiggers a few blocks away. If you want food or you're a bro, this is your spot.
