From after-work drinks to killing time around Times Square, this subterranean surf shack is a solid card to play when faced with all manner of midtown conundrums. Though there’s kitsch aplenty, including colorful bathing suits strung up on the walls, the under-the-radar drinkery has its bona fides in order: Classic surf bands warble over the speakers, six wave-bashing flicks (including Endless Summer) play on loop, and friendly barkeeps serve the type of dangerously drinkable quaffs you’d expect at an oceanside watering hole. Sample a bright array of rhum arrangé (house-infused rums), or cool off with the “frozen Corona”—a grown-up slushie with beer, vodka, triple sec and lime.

Enjoy beach food from around the top surf towns at this location!!! Owners were surfing enthusiasts that traveled round the world to catch the best waves. From there they thought to open an international surf town top foods location & NYC was the lucky home. A great selection of drinks & great foods to nosh on. Something for any taste bud since you have the taste of the worlds all under one roof. My fav...but than again...it's my favorite food.....is the tater tots!!! Def recommend with a beer as you sit down at take in all the surf town decor. This is a great spot for happy hour in the heart of midtown!!! It's always bumping!!!
I have been here a few times for my university alumni events, and let me tell you I love this place. They really did go all out on the theme, between the decorations, the drink options, and just about the entire vibe of the bar. You can easily forget that you are in the middle of NYC when you wind up here.
Service is great, drinks are great and the food is great. That being said the place has a laid back ambiance and crowd. It's a good place to hang with friends or make new ones. A must try on Taco Tuesday's.
