Foursquare Tips

  • The long-awaited sister bar of Rattle-N-Hum is a godsend to Port Authority commuters. And with 80 beers on tap, a booming space, and a well-crafted food menu, you might actually WANT to go to Midtown.
  • Good beer. Horrible music for this concept. Top 40 is not acceptable for a beer bar. One and done.
  • Beer Authority, get it? Because they have lots of beers and because it's right by Port Authority. Works on so many levels... $5 beer for Happy Hour
  • Try the Blue Point Rastafa Rye!
  • Located right near Port Authority - this two floor bar has a little something for everyone. It get's pretty loud and crowded after work, so get their early. Also has a roof deck in the summer time!
  • Yummy Miami Vice - half pia colada half strawberry margarita. Virgin.
  • We are open!!!!
  • For a whacked out spot with the weirdest people walking around this bar will be my favorite spot before I catch a bus. Tony the downstairs bartender was great. the braised shirt rib sandwich was grea
  • Service was slow but the food was delicious! Try the mussels, the perogies, the Mac and Cheese or the ravioli. All delicious! The Union Jack beer was amazing!
  • Bar game: take a shot if you can spot my desk (it's visible from here!)
  • It's like a TGIF with a better beer menu.
  • Great chill spot to grab a beer in midtown - so much good stuff on tap.
  • Try the beer here.
  • White girls dancing.
  • Don't come here with John. He keeps saying things are delicious.
  • Really, really bad food. Possibly the worst lunch of 2012 for me.
  • The roof is great.... But sometimes a storm maybe on its way!
  • One of the best beer selections around (next to Rattle n' Hum - sister bar). Friendly bartenders, polite bouncers, great Firesrone Pale Ale!!! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • They need to find their sea legs, but the concept is there. Brisket sandwich was fair, but duck flatbread was surprisingly good and packed with flavor. Full review at
  • Solid beer selection from across the US. Enjoyed the Patty Melt off the menu.
