    Come here when the Bryant Park Grille is over crowded it's 10K times better and the beer on tap is great!

    Stop by and say hello to the mayor. He's there every weekday around 1:45 and is a nice,personable guy :)

    They have available power outlets on the north side of the building right next to a bunch of comfortable chairs. That combined with the park's free wifi makes for a great spot to do some work.

    Way overpriced for what you get but if you are single and on the make you can't beat it. Everyone seems to be looking to hook up in this place. Singles paradise.

    Goat cheese sandwich is super good. Place initially seems over priced but the location is beautiful and food is good. Totally worth it

    Grab a spiked spiced apple cider while the weather is warm enough!

    You're better off finding seats and navigating the bar on your own than relying on waitress service.

    hot chocolate and blankets to come next week (Nov 12th)!

    I'm pleasantly surprised that the drink prices here aren't too crazy. I feel like a lot of people know this though because it's crazy here afterwork in the nice weather months. Lock down a swing!

    Beautiful place! Good to rest and look the things around! Veio até NY, vale a pena entrar neste parque!

    Grab a porch swing, and wads of cash for the overpriced pints.

    It's a beautiful spot for lunch, but it seems really understaffed. You have to wait a while before you can flag down one of the overworked waiters.

    Pretty much my favorite-est place for the summer. Closes at 11p though! Ask for the spicy popcorn and lifesize jenga!

    Have a friend camp out at a table while you get the beers. It's crowded, but once you settle in it's pretty nice.

    Kitchen closes pretty early but great place to grab a drink on a warm summer night.

    Super laid back. Guacamole is amazing, watermelonade is out of this world. A little pricey but the drinks are strong and the good is quality.
