Stopped in with a friend for a few pints. They had perhaps 30+ on tap from all over. We tried a few, maybe more! Great service, small friendly place. Did not try the food.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted

cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
