Time Out says

Though Ryan’s Daughter only opened in 1979, there has been a bar at the same Upper East Side location since the Prohibition era. Over the years, the pub has maintained the same welcoming feel and today, it still plays host to plenty of neighborhood events. Stop by on the first Wednesday of every month to watch the unofficial UES poll championships. From time to time, the upstairs bar even hosts performances of plays written by local thespians. During the colder months, sip on an Irish coffee to warm up—Ryan’s Daughter offers both the classic recipe and one spiked with whiskey and Bailey’s—or a hot toddy. The bar has an extensive list of beers on tap, including their own house ale ($5), Paulaner hefeweizen ($6) and Six Point “The Crisp” Pilz ($6). The usual suspects—Budweiser ($5), Corona ($6) and Pabst Blue Ribbon ($4)—appear in bottles or cans, but the best deal might be the pairing of a can of Narragansett Del’s Shandy with a well shot ($9).
