Shecky’s Night Life: Manhattan’s Best Craft Beer Bars

If you’ve ever been parched while standing behind tourists at the Apple Store, you probably thought you were screwed. No craft beer anywhere close (I doubt FAO Schwarz will ever open a bar in the basement, but we can dream). Luckily, the nearby Stag’s Head is a lifesaver in Midtown East. An oddly shaped, tight-squeeze bar in the round with plenty of restaurant seating and even a garden roof deck, The Stag’s Head always offers some adventurous selections on tap with a pretty nifty chalkboarded bottle list as well. Plus they host weekly tasting events with free thematic grub, because you just can’t sample Pittsburgh beers without a hearty portion of scrapple.
