Quick, a good pub near Penn Station

I never go there. But need to meet someone later this afternoon. Where can we get a good beer in a not crummy atmosphere. Within 5 blocks or so. Thanks!

  1. At just about the end of that range, you could go to the bar at Keens, 36th & 6th and get a good beer or whiskey at a classic New York place.

      1. stout - 33rd just east of 7th

        1. Thanks. I'll go for Stout. Seems to be the closest.

          1. Stout was nice, if a bit touristy (you know, could you take a picture of us kind of thing). Nice beers and nice ambience though.

              Based on the calendar, everyplace is touristy right now!

            2. Stay right in Penn St. Downstairs, next to the NJ Transit area, is a long railway bar (I think it's called Tracks) which is really not bad, as railway bars go. And they have very good beer. Certainly fine for a meeting at the end of the day.

              It will avoid the crush above ground, which tonight is going to be horrible.
