Foursquare Tips

  • Proletariat is a much-deserved look into no-holds-barred beer geekdom, blissfully free of TVs, generic pub grub & high-fiving mooks. It holds only 12 stools & its menus have been replaced w/ a QR code
  • It retains the coziness of a speakeasy ... though with its framed images of skulls, roses, and other vintage tattoos it brings to mind the rowdier end of St. Marks Place.
  • Ask the knowledgeable, but unpretentious bartender about a beer, and he'll tell you EVERYTHING about it.
  • Delivering on a promise of "rare, new and unusual beer" from around the corner and around the world, this bar sports knowledgeable staff and an offbeat vibe in a space hidden behind Jane's Sweet Buns.
  • Beer nerds, this is your mecca. No larger than a hallway, this tiny, 10-seat gem stocks 12 select picks on draft with four or five reserved for out-of-the-box options, plus 15 to 20 bottles.
  • Get a beer.
  • Absurd beer selection! http://www.beermenus.com/places/4652-proletariat
  • Finally, an unpretentious place w a crazy unique and high quality beer list. I love this place.
  • The bar has garnered a solid crowd. You dont have to let them put hop tincture in your beer, though, if you dont want to.
  • You think you know beer? You have no idea. Cory will never lead you wrong. Trust him.
  • Proletariat is a beer bar with a kertwang of the unusual: In addition to the exotic beer list (accessible by QR code), it's got beer cocktails on tap
  • While the bar itself is narrow and dim, the beer list here is broad and enlightened, with lauded imports, local favorites, and American rarities all on tap, and a staff who knows their beer.
  • Cozy bar with amazing unique beers & great music.
  • Great bartender - takes the time to make sure you like your beer
  • Bar manager Cory & staff are extremely knowledgable. Excellent artisanal beer & cider curation. Try Tilquin Gueuze if it's on tap.
  • For serious beer aficionados: snag a seat at the bar and try an esoteric beer that, in all likelihood, you have never heard of. The draft list is up on the wall; bottles are on the printed menu.
  • Amazing beer selection - always cool things on tap that you won't find anywhere else. Knowledgeable staff and love the tattoo art on the walls. Solid date spot.
  • A lot of really good small-production beers. Definitely recommend.
  • Hands down one of the best beer bars in Manhattan
  • The mustard with the pretzel bread is Amazing!!!!
