Food is tasty and the there is a large selection of drinks. Couldn't have asked for a better bar in NYC!! Thanks to the staff and the locals for creating a... More

As my friends and I were trudging around Time Square and dealing with the many strange and wonderful sights that area beholds, we found ourselves, parched and in desperate need of sustenance. We saw the doorway of the Beer Authority and the unassuming entrance was like an oasis in the desert beckoning us in. Once inside we found the downstairs... More

I came here for a friend's birthday back in March and it's a good place to meet up with a big group; it's very spacious and can accommodate a large group easily. The beer selection is quite good, but it's very expensive, as one would expect from a bar in midtown Manhattan. Service was fine and I didn't get food,... More

Walking back to our hotel from dinner we spotted this hopping place! Sat at the small bar downstairs for an after dinner drink instead of battling the noise upstairs.

Excellent burger, friendly staff, good beers, so exactly what the doctor ordered after a long day of travel. Not the cheapest place I've ever been to, but hey, it's around the corner from Time Sq. Would return!

If you like beer, the is the place with numerous beers to select from around the world. And what goes great with a good beer is a burger. I ordered their namesake burger, the Founders Burger. It was tasty and messy. What you want from a good burger. The fries were probably a bit too salty with flavored salt, but... More

Arrived in New York on St Patrick's day, it was heaving! Looking round for somewhere to eat & this place was just around the corner from our hotel on West 39th. We were ushered upstairs & seated at the bar to peruse the menu. I plumped for a Gaelic burger & my partner had a Cobb salad. Service was brisk,... More

This place just happened to be just down the block from my hotel on W 40th - saw some business people coming out - and glanced at their menu in the window. Found a spacious, and pleasantly open bar / restaurant with a great draft beer selection. I had their Burger and Fries - both were Very good!. (Much better... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
