Maroon stamped tin-walls and antique belt-driven ceiling fans lend speakeasy charm to this classic pub. And the eclectic keg and kitchen picks—a Stone IPA with a half-pound, char-grilled cheeseburger or a pint of Old Speckled Hen with a plate of warmed brie, sliced apples and fried pickles—far outshines the usual Yuengling-and-wings standard. Two discreet TV screens keep sports-fans happy, while subdued lighting and a cozy aural buzz reward intrepid bridge crossers. For grown-ups and those who love them, Henry Street Ale House is indispensable—especially since everything's priced like it's 1985. With its 16 drafts, quality food and a civil, old world atmosphere, this place is what many Manhattan's microbrew taverns aspire to be.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
