The Penny Farthing

The wood-paneled room at this tavern is decorated with antique bike wheels; it’s a nod to the name, which refers to an outmoded cousin of the bicycle that, luckily, you won’t have to ride home after drinking several pints. Sixteen taps dispense a range of beers, from local selections like Kelso to England’s Boddingtons ale. A full menu offers bar-food classics like burgers, buffalo wings and steak.

Great Place - Great Penny Burger - a must try. One of my favs and I live and work in the area.

This review is solely based on the bar at night. It's a very college/post-college bar in the East Village. Usually pretty crowded but never so bad that you can't move around (like some bars in the area). This place is kind of hit-or-miss. I've had some really fun nights there and some not-so-fun nights there as well. There's lots of other bars in the area if you feel like giving this place a try and wind up not enjoying yourself, so you'll have options!
