This is a great little find north of 90th St. on the UES. Hidden behind lots of scaffolding is a fun Irish bar with a pool table, skee ball machine and lots of TVs to watch any games. It's also home to one of the best damn deals in the

Definitely a good happy hour spot: clean interior, good music, decent bar food, a pool table and drink specials! Good place to begin to unwind after a week of work!

Pool tables, good food, nice bar, TVs for sporting events (hockey), great happy hour specials. Bar is perfect for Friday afternoon right after school.

Great place for Friday drinks. Nice atomsphere, good drinks, and decent food. Happy hour burger is a steal and hits the spot. One of few places to let off some stress for work during week.

My husband and I have been going to this pub for the last two years now and love it. A refreshing break from the fratty dive bars all along 2nd ave, this is an oasis for the post-collegiate crowd looking for a place to drink without with

This was one of the best pubs new York has to offer (trust me I sampled a few). I was there twice once during a night out and then again during the day. There was great customer service on both nights. They even remembered my name when I

This irish pub on the UES is currently one of my two favorites to go to in the City when I'm looking for a laid-back and fairly-social, atmoshpere. The crowd is usually good - Merrion Sq doesn't only cater to early 20s people like many of

This little-known bar on 95th is a great place to hang out and not be bothered by a crowded bar. The staff is polite and will bring drinks/food quickly. This is what I think of when I think of great neighborhood bars.

I went there with my friends after work. We work at the hospital. We got there about 9:30 pm. They have $3 dollar Coors Lights. If you're going to drink you should eat right? My buddy ordered the potatoe skins. Thick bacon covered
