Yesterday, I went to see Josh Groban in Bloomingdales and my husband found the Carriage House. After the concert, I met him there and I was very pleased with with food, service, kindness and overall ambiance. The bartender was very nice

My boyfriend and I were shopping in Bloomingdales and wanted a quick bite and a beer, we were recommended to pop into The Carriage House up the street. we got to the bar and were greeted by a lovely blond Irish girl behind the bar, who made us feel like we were back in Ireland, she recommended we had the great Guinness and a shepherds pie and fish and chips and we were not disappointed, really tasty food,good Guinness and the barmaid had us laughing all night, I think she said her name was Pam.I would definitely recommend this bar forpeoplewho want a nice pint, tasty pub food and a great friendly (tanned) authentic Irish bartender and service, we will be back every Wednesday!!

Me and some friends from out of town were shopping in my favorite part of town. Midtown. Cute Boutiques along with Bloomingdales, Urban, H&M, Steve Madden, Diesel, Ect..... We were EXHAUSTED and THIRSTY!!! We saw the Carriage House's Irish flag peaking out on 59th St... We got a awesome window seat. Our waitress was very friendly and suggested great cocktails. Typical bar food, but good.
The place started to fill up pretty fast. It was 6pm when we got there. We stayed all night!!! Great music, CUTE GUYS, Friendly Staff!!! I will be back. My friends from Mass. say it was one of their favorite nights on the trip!!
Big Thanks To The Carriage House

On a random night out, we ended up at The Carriage House. From the moment we walked in the door we were warmly greeted and well looked after. I ordered the Lamb Special with Mash Potatoes and Gravy.....YUM YUM YUM!!!!
Everyone else ordered off the menu and were equally happy. Surprisingly great wine selection for a Irish Pub!!! Cant beat the Prices either....

After seeing a movie we were looking for a place to grab a drink. We found The Carriage House!!!!!! Really great atmosphere. The staff was really friendly.. I was in the mood for beer and wings.. Hands down the coldest beer I have had in Manhattan!!! There were ice crystals on my glass!! I had the mild wings and my friend got the super hot.. The mild were just perfect and the super hot were not overly hot... Although I live in Brooklyn, I will be making a trip to The Carriage House in the near future!!!

Went to meet friends here for a drink before dinner down the street.. To start the staff was extremely nice and accomodating, as our party of 4 grew to 10... They sat us in the back near the pool table. Everyone was having such a great time.. We scratched our dinner plans and stayed here all night!!! Try the passion fruit martini!!! and hands down the Best Burger I have had in a Long time!!!!!
O yeah and to top things off our server bought us Delicious apple shots on the HOUSE before we left!!! I will be back!!

This was a return trip... and a good one. There are slim pickin' in Midtown, on the east side... especially after the Khaki crew leaves and Bloomingdales closes. But this place is a find. The staff is as friendly as leprechauns... and as Irish. With a decent beer selection (They had Sam Adams Octoberfest... on tap), and a nice, if not especially innovative appetizer selection (the Super Hot wings were hot enough... but the HOT, nahw...), you can nicely fill up here. The crew was accommodating, holding us a table in a prime spot and then letting us shift furniture when others showed up. This is not a part of town to go beer (or bar) hopping, but if you find yourself thirsty, and it's late, you can't do better than this place. --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers... a different bar every week

There is a to-die-for Passion fruit martini here for those who don't do liquor straight. Lots of flat panel T.V.'s to watch ESPN or music videos on. Pool tables , darts and video gaming to past the time. A great staff that is more than happy to feed you one of their yummy items off the menu.\r

Wow! Even the bouncers are friendly at this SLIGHTLY off the main drag bar. Yeah, the music is too loud, making conversation difficult. But that's the only thing I can think of to complain about. The wait-staff is effecient and so friendly you begin to wonder if this is New York. Ann, our waitress, sat down at out table with us and asked about our club. She actually seemed interested. She got our orders right, gave us a free cocktail, and a dish that someone else ordered and then changed their mind about. Even the bouncer, was nice-- and he's SUPPOSED to be mean! I'm sure glad this place isn't as popular as it should be... you'd never get in! --Drink Club NYC is a roving group of NYC drinkers\r

This bar is the worst bar i have ever been to in New York City.... Tastless food, angry people arguing while playing pool, felt like there was a fight ready to break out any minute.... i love Irish bars but this place is not a bar that you could just walk in and pick up a friendly game of pool.... Was full of angry irish men fighting over a game of pool.... horrible table service.....

This bar is an excellent bar for hanging out with friends. The standard jukebox has a decent selection, and the music isn't played so loud that you can't carry on a conversation. The food offered is better than average pub grub, I highly recommend the wings. The Carriage House is roomy enough that you don't have to continually keep moving out of peoples way if you're standing near the bar, and there is an area at the front that you can actually reserve for parties or whatever reason. \r
\r
It isn't a dive bar with cheap drinks, and it isn't a college bar packed wall to wall with people screaming to be heard, but it is a great bar for enjoying some good food and drinks with your friends.

The Carriage House is great for a gathering after work or on the weekends. We've been several times and always have a good time. Attentive staff, good jukebox (not so loud you have to yell to talk like other places), not too crazybusy, near the subway, good drinks and decent pub food. Thumbs up, A++, will go again!

Cool place to go meet up with friends after work. They have the usual bar fare of deep fried foods, along with some Irish favorites (the shepherd's pie is delicious). The bartenders and owners are friendly, and they have a decent selection of endrunkening equipment.

Not too crowded, good selection of beer and liquor, always friendly to me and my friends when we go. Owners are really nice, too. Decent music and prices. Lots of space (well, for a NYC bar)! :) It's a good place to chill.

All the food is deep fried and draft beer is warm and sour..... I agree, venture a little further up towards the 70's/80's - much better bars with more women and better food.... sorry..... Just don't want anyone to make the same mistake me and my buddies made!

I would continue walking up 2nd ave towards the bars in the 70s, or even in the 80s....much better atmosphere and friendly crowd plus the food is a million times better.....if cheese sticks is the best thing anyone can recommend then i would not waste my time unfortunately... Not worth the money...

I'm only back home in Ireland from New York, we stumbled across this bar and i have to say it was the one bar that i really liked. The Bar staff were two irish girls from the north ( Think they were leona and julie) they we very friendly and they were the reason we stayed all nite, they spoke to everyone and created a good atmosphere in the bar, unlike many of the bars we visited. The service was excellent and the food was delicous i would so recommend the mozzerella sticks

Don't appreciate being taken advantage of when i'm paying $60 for shots and the bartender casually throws it on top of the register... Also, the short waitress with black hair should not be in the service industry... The only good thing i can say is, the security guy was very pleasant.\r
Unfortunately not a bar i would recommend.

Best bar you can find. Good food, especially the wings. They also have daily specials on an already great menu. It has a great atmosphere, the decor has a touch of that old Irish flavor with a modern look, TVs all around so you can watch what games are on that day. A digital jukebox, pool table, video game and dart board. The bartenders are the best around, friendly and I don?t think there?s a drink they can?t make ( best prices ). When you go there you meet people who are fun and exciting. It?s like you become part of a family. You go once you will be back again and again. The Carriage House is the Cheers of New York .

Pros: never forget a customer

Recently, I made a trip down to NYC from Providence. While there, my wife and I stumbled upon this small Irish bar on 59th St. It was 5pm, and we were expecting a typical businessman happy hour. But while there were certainly plenty of loosened ties, The Carriage House also had one of the friendliest groups of staff and customers I've ever seen in Manhattan. Having lived there for most of my life, this is saying a lot.\r
\r
The decor of the bar is great. Irish-themed, but not to the point where it becomes gimmicky. My wife and I found a few free stools by the end of the bar (from the looks of it, this was a popular area to sit). We were greeted by a girl with dirty blonde hair and a brogue just thick enough to make you want a Guinness. After delivering our order, the bartender (Caroline, I think her name was) talked with us for a good ten minutes. It was as if she had known us for years. And she apparently does this with everyone who walks in the door.\r
\r
The bar became reasonably crowded, but never overwhelming, and the digital jukebox never became too loud that I couldn't talk to my friends. At this point, an hour or so into our stay, we had already been introduced to at least five regulars, who treated us like we came there every day (and from what I gathered, most of them did just that). We stayed for another three hours, and would have stayed longer if we hadn't already made other plans.\r
\r
Bottom line: The Carriage House is one of the most comfortable neighborhood pubs I've found in some time. The drink options are plentiful and reasonably priced, and the food offered bar standards and some eclectic fare, all of which looked and smelled outstanding. When you top off the menus with the quality of the service and the friendly faces, you have a place worth visiting again. Our only regret was that we didn't discover The Carriage House while we still lived in NYC. But at least we'll know where we're going the next time we visit home.

Went with a few guys who have been there a few times..... The bartenders were cute and friendly but watched this guy in an outdated ponytail who apparently is the owner get drunk and create a terrible and uncomforable atmosphere in the bar..... At one point he even screamed at one of the waitressess. I would prefer to spend my money somewhere else. Not a great place to pick up also - mostly guys!

Visited this bar on a reccomendation with a group of friends and other halfs recently during a reunion of sorts and I have to say the reception we got from the waitresses and bartender was excellent - super friendly and good fun. \r
The music in the place was great (especially when I was on the jukebox!)\r
The drinks were flowing - especially the cocktails which were otherworldly, the chocolate orange martini was delicious. \r
We enjoyed a great big platter of appetizers and the best wings I've had in a long time.\r
Enjoyed the pool when we got on the table as well as the darts and elec spot the difference (calm down!)\r
\r
Good fun, happy go lucky place which will be on the list for a visit soon.

The Carriage House is right by my office, and I go there a couple of times a month with coworkers for beer, car bombs, assorted shots, and fun games of pool, elec trivia, and darts. The wait staff is friendly, you MUST try their wings they are fantastic, good pool table, and the best tables are in the very front (round table right by the window) and back ( seats 8-10 people, great for coworkers to chat while being heard), but I recommend reserving a table if you really want it. NOT a place to pick up girls, but definitely a place to relax and enjoy some libations. block away from N/R/W/4/5/6.

If you want a bar with a great atmosphere, great food, and the best bar staff in the city, this place is for you! This is the way every bar in NY should be...no pretension, no BS. The clientele is diverse and low key, the juke box has something for everyone, and there's a pool table and dart board to boot! I have been going to the Carriage House for years, and it is hands down my favorite spot in all of NYC. The staff at the Carriage House makes you feel at home (plus is home to the hottest bartender in NY - that's right CD!). So if you want a fun night out with friends, go see Richie and the crew at CH!!!

A glistening piece of The Emerald Isle can be found in an otherwise mundane stretch of midtown \r
Manhattan! \r
This was the closest bar to my very first apartment in New York, and I've been a semi-regular ever since. There are pubs that pretend to be Irish, but this one is Irish-owned and staffed by friendly, mostly-female bartenders who all speak with a brogue as thick and sweet as Fruitfield marmalade. A recent renovation has resulted in eight large flat-screen TVs, making it a good, uncrowded place to catch a game on a Saturday or Sunday. They used to only take Amex, but they now accept all plastic. I don't live as close to the Carriage House as I used to, but I find the need to visit there a couple times a week, if only for the 20-ounce Guinnesses and the million-dollar smiles.

I don't live as close to the Carriage House as I used to, but I find the need to visit there a couple times a week, if only for the 20-ounce Guinnesses and the million-dollar smiles.

Pros: A bottle of Bud for $3 during happy hour; close to the subway and Bloomingdales.

Cons: Open til 4 a.m. most nights on a street that's partly-residential, so the bouncers/bartenders can occasionally be strict about maintaining order.

Has to be the rudest bar staff in the city!!! (except for one waitress)\r
\r
This coming from a former regular.\r
\r
Took friends there after work. Spent a whole paycheck . \r
Had all my songs on the juke box either skipped or ejected by the on duty bartenders.\r

Pros: Great Atmosphere

Cons: Occassional bar-tender attitude

Lots of wood, one of the important characteristics of a serious drinking bar. The waitresses were friendly, helpful, and willing to shoot us (with a camera, wadja think?) at a moment's notice. The place was not crowded, thankfully. The music was a bit loud, but not overwhelming. Notoutrageously expensive either, considering the close-to-Bloomingdales location. The mostly male clientelle were not super friendly,, but not cliquish either. It's not a bad place to hang out. --Drink Club is a roving group of NYC Drinkers

I was having a great time at the bar with some male and female friends one weekend until the bouncer tried to push me and told me I had to leave. I was asked to stay by my male friends but the bartender asked me and all my girlfriends to settle the bill. The bouncer was rude and noted to my boyfriend that if I wanted to hang with the guys he would treat me like a guy. Not quite sure how kicking all the women out of the bar was doing that, I left extremely offended and upset. The place was fun with pool, darts and fun computer games, but if you're having fun they might kick you out.

Great place for after-work beer and wings - very enjoyable, staff were helpful and v. friendly.
Great bar for pool, darts and those Irish shenanagans!
The only con was having to drink more beer waiting for our songs to come round on the JUKEBOX!

Pros: Beer , The wings , good music

Do not order the chicken skewers! They were approximately 1 nanometer in circumfrence; literally the skimpiest portions of meat on a stick I have ever seen. The fish and chips were ok . . . again, portions aren't too generous. Service was lukewarm; e.g. the server forgot to bring my malt vinegar.

Pros: cute place, close to the N/R, good vibe

Cons: chicken skewers, service

.

Definitely a laid back place complete with pool table and darts but not a good place if you don't carry cash and not a regular AMEX card user. Also a good place if you have a huge party and need the space since it's usually not packed.

Midtown Irish pub serves bar food standards and boasts pool, darts and a jukebox for the after-work crowd.
