Cocktails / Craft Beer - Hells Kitchen Weeknight

I will be trying out Ippudo Westside (51st b/w 8th and 9th) this week and would like your valued opinions on a cocktail / craft beer joint in the area where we can grab a drink during wait?

The last thread on this was back in 2009 and most of the recommended spots have closed! I enjoy Lantern's Keep - so although that sets the "bar" high, it should help guide discussion. :)

  1. How about Valhalla for beer (it's on 9th Ave)

        We've heard Ippudo will now text you when your table is up so like you our plan is to hang out at a bar and beer is great before ramen sooooooooo...

          YES! I I just read that in an earlier CH post today! I'm a long time lurker, first time poster.. my search for a decent booze joint in HK / Midtown West brought me to create an ID. Thanks again for the suggest :D

            You're welcome, glad to have you on the board.

    1. Valhalla and Brickyard are the two closest spots for a good beer list. Pony Bar is also good, but a little more of a walk.
