Guinness Your favourite place for it in Manhattan

Winter is here and I am am curious where you go in Manhattan for your Guinness. Who do you think has a great pour? I like Desmonds on Park Ave though by no means do I think it has Great Guinness there. The Dublin House on West 79th (Harp Bar) does have a good one too.

  1. The Ear Inn should be a good place for Guinness.

      1. Third for Molly's...along with a burger and onion rings...can't be beat

          One of the best burgers around! And they draw a great Guinness.

        2. McCormack's on 3rd Ave., about 26th St., when I get there, which is rare.

          1. Milanos - It's on Houston between Mulberry and Mott. (South side st) I don't know if it ever closes. It might just turn into a flophouse after 4. And they will cash your social security check too!

              Don't want to hijack the thread but the owner of Milanos has sold the bar. I have no idea if the new owner intends to clean the place up.

              BTW, it actually does close. I was shocked. I didn't even think the door had a lock on it.

                Oh no! I hardly ever go but still, I guess I hate change...most of the old guys I know from Milano's are dead now anyway!

                  "most of the old guys I know from Milano's are dead now anyway!", and well pickled I'm sure.

                  I don't go much anymore but things changed a few years ago when they cleaned things up a bit and brightened up the bar area.

                  I just checked with a friend who knows and Milanos was sold to the owner of The Libarary Bar so maybe he'll keep things the same.
