The bartenders (especially during the afternoon) are some of the best around town. And if you are a fan of Guinness then this is the best pint you'll find in NYC. It's true that it's a skinny bar but that lends character to the place.

This has got to be one of the smallest bars in the city! It is a true, slim rectangle! But they have some great beers on tap and some great music. Nice atmostphere, great place to hang with friends and get started on a night out in NYC.

My girlfriend and I wandered in one night after we moved into the neighborhood and now go back at least a few times a week. The atmoshphere is warm and inviting. It's never too rowdy but always lively. The pool tables offer an alternative to just sitting no a bar stool and the food is really good. The staff is very friendly, prices good and the "Guinness Club" is a wonderfully decadent incentive to keep coming back :)

I love this bar. It is rather small but so is everywhere else in the City. It's a great place to grab a drink with some friends and sit while being able to have an actual conversation.

So, I walked in here a while ago with a smile on my face and a song in my heart from the great day I had. Saddled up to the bar, smiled at the redheaded bartender to acknowledge I was there, and about 5 minutes passed before she decided to take my order. It seemed the conversation was more important than doing her job. No apologies. No service with a smile. So, when I just read that the staff is great I have to ask, "Who was working that night?"

This bar has been my favorite local spot for over five years. The staff is fantastic, the bar is clean, and they have very reasonable prices.

I love this place, I come here with friends all the time, the staff are so warm and friendly and the drinks are great. They have a bunch of "top shelf" beers from around the world that are amazing, try the Monty Python Holy GrALE. The Poet is a great place to relax and just kick it and chat with friends, not exactly the most rowdy or treny bar, but just plain fun.

The Dead Poet is a skinny bar, literally. It's as if it was built in an alley. Don't let that discourage you and your friends. We stopped in before a movie and never left. I highly encourage you to order "The Dead Poet" signature drink, you'll want four more before realizing you're three sheets to the wind. The owners are great people and their staff is wonderful as well... good service makes for a great bar experience... ENJOY!

A little small but you can't beat the amazing drink specials every night and music. Always a great time everytime I go to drink! Bar food is A+++!

Pros: Drink Specials/Prices, Food, pool table and music plus great service

Cons: A little small

Ok, so if you're looking for a college-meat-market-hook-up joint, go elsewhere (just a few steps down Amsterdam, in fact). But, if you want a relaxed atmosphere with friendly service, quality pub food, and interesting drinks, give the Dead Poet a shot. Is the bar small? Yes, it is. But, THIS IS MANHATTAN. This bar makes you forget its size after a few refreshing sips of its signature drink.

I felt like a dead poet when I was there. Very small and tight space. Go there if you want to kill time before heading out to the other bars, but even that'll make you fall asleep and want to go home. The bartenders are nice so that's a plus. Otherwise, if you're looking to have a good time, go elsewhere

More of a closet than a bar, this place is the worst on the Amsterdam stretch. Rude service, and too expensive for its own good. Skip this tourist trap!

The bartenders are super friendly, and the drinks are reasonably priced. In addition, the decor makes me feel like I'm back in Ireland.
