Never fear, non-beer drinkers, there are plenty of other drinks available from the full bar. Although beer appears to be the first priority here, food is available to cater those basic needs. The tables along the bar have stools, but make for a narrow walking space when busy, so it maybe best to grab a table if possible. Several televisions blast a range of sporting events, but they aren't too distracting for those looking for some conversation. Check out the game, bro!

The Waterfront Ale House in Manhattan is neither on the waterfront nor does it feel like an ale house. Situated in Kip's Bay, the Waterfront Ale House has a worn, darkly lit vibe that screams for fried dishes to be washed down with a one of their rotating selections of 20 beers on tap. With a name including waterfront, you may think seafood, but some of the best menu items relate to barbecue ribs and pork. Happy hour encourages the liquid. It's a great spot for a few friends or a casual date. Try their award-winning hot sauce, but know where the water is first.
