Wanted: A bar in midtown NYC (between MSG and Grand Central preferred) that has good drink specials on Wednesday early evening..

A few college friends who I do not usually get a chance to see are meeting up this afternoon in midtown, and we'd all like to find a place that we havent been to, and that offers decent drink specials between, say, 7-10pm. Any ideas?

There's very little in that area that is non touristy, or even a little bit interesting, given that you're smack dab in commuter territory there, but the Ginger Man has an excellent beer selection, is a decent place for smallish groups and usually has some happy hour specials on food and drink. I'll continue to give it some thought however.

three words ----
Tir Na nOg

Address: 5 Penn Plaza, New York, NY 10001
Phone: 212-630-0249

If it's beer and a burger you want, you could hardly do better than at Tir na NOg (5 Penn Plaza, Eighth Avenue between 33rd and 34th streets, 212-630-0249), an unusually friendly and attractive Irish bar and grill. Salads, soups and entrees are good as well. ("Tir na NOg" refers to the legendary Irish land of eternal youth.)

While the Ginger Man and Tir Na Nog are both chains, I heartily recommend the former. We used to go to the Houston branch often; good people.

Ginger Man I've been to, and they don't have happy hour specials, although they do have 'happy hour' (whatever that means). Happy Hour = specials in my book.

Tir Na nOg sounds good, but no happy hour and average price is $5.50 for a draft.. I'd love to find a place less expensive for my in-school, in-debt friends..

Thanks though.. :-)

You could hardly get cheaper than the Molly Wee Pub on 8th Ave a block south of MSG.

We ended up at Croton Reservoir Tavern.. Nice place. Food wasnt cheap, but domestic drafts were $3, and that's fair.

Thanks for the help.
