A major renovation to Walter’s Bar turned this once “working class” spot into the ubiquitous everybar found in the area surrounding MSG: The pool table was swapped out for high tops, the dark interior brightened by track lighting and flat screen TVs, and draught beer was brought in (the selection isn’t exactly an improvement—think Coors Lite, Blue Moon, and Yuengling). A dartboard remains in the back, but most eyes are on the TVs, which means it can get packed on game days. But the all-day-every-day two for $5 PBR special, outside food policy (you can bring in food or get it delivered) and clean bathrooms (a rarity in this part of town), make this a perfectly acceptable spot to drink in this part of town—though the coolest thing here just might be the old neon Walter’s sign hanging above the bar.
