Cool Owner & Great Beer – We went early & on a Wednesday so at first it was a little quiet but that was great because we had the chance to meet/chat with the owner (he was very cool & made us feel very welcome). By the time we left we were very drunk off excellent beer & the crowd was really chill/friendly. Let's face it...soooo much to choose from while in NYC, however this place is well worth having a few great beers with good company & music...ps the double white beer I had was THE SMOOTHEST beer ever. Check this place out.
Great for birthday parties – I chose Stanton Public to celebrate my birthday a few Friday nights past based on CitySearch reviews. I would never have noticed this place because it's kind of off the beaten path, especially for LES. It was a great choice because I had an awesome night (can't remember some of it), the bar was able to accommodate 15+ friends comfortably, and I got to drink for free all night! I drank Southampton Double White (very tasty) all night, in addition to some random shots... We started off the evening in the outdoor "beer garden" that is cozy and comfortable on cool summer evenings, but by 11 pm it was PACKED! So as more friends arrived, I decided to move the party downstairs. There is a semi-private area down there with alcove seating, dart boards, flat-screen TV, and easy access to the ladies room. No one was downstairs, so we turned it into our own VIP section :-) The waitresses were very friendly and served my party both upstairs and down. My friends were a little disappointed that there was no food service that evening, but the amazing selection of beers and full bar made up for it. This is the place to go if you want a variety of drinks, or want to try something new. Even though I didn't have to pay for drinks that night, my friends told me that drink prices were reasonable, especially for Manhattan. Also, between the main bar area, garden, and downstairs, no one was bored. My only other issue is that the music was VERY loud, but that's the problem at most bars in the city. I would highly recommend Stanton Public for a chill weekday night out, or a weekend party. Call the management a few days before if you are planning to bring a big party, and plan to arrive early to grab the good seats.
On the Lower East Side, a cozy and rocker-friendly spot for those on the search for rare and exotic beer. – In Short
At this bi-level pub, an English beer engine (one of only a handful in the city) transfers brew from cask to tap. The device keeps the beer pure and 10 degrees warmer than usual, and shows the bar's devotion to the brew. As the night deepens, the scene transforms from after-work brewpub to hipster lounge, as artists gab on an enclosed porch that's decked out entirely in white. Downstairs, boozers discover a grittier nightlife, complete with two dartboards and a flat-screen TV.
Stanton is my friend – The large selection of beer will make your head flip, being that you probably only heard of a handful of them. The bartenders and staff are engaging (unless you're a drunk baffoon), funny, and very sweet. I loved this one beer, and they gave us 2 more on the house even though they were more expensive than most others. They started a harder rock night ,i think it's every other Monday with the bassist from Kittie DJing. It sometimes gets crowded on the weekends with a lot of pretty girls mind you, unfortunately for me I can't keep my boyfriends eyes on me at all times but that won't keep me out of here, luckily he's trustworthy.
Gem – Went there last night (tuesday) to pre-game before PLANNING to go to 205 club next door & ended up staying the night (well, till 3). Definitely great to have these two spots next door to each other & down the block from me, I'll only need to use public transportation to go to work now!
Consistently a good time – I've always been a fan of Stanton Public since it opened. Great indoor space. Great outdoor space. They have a fantastic selection of beers & liquors and the crowd is friendly and energized. Plus, for the L.E.S., I've always liked that the decor is a little more upscale in the main room- more polished. Tired of the vintage, I comb my hair with margarine and a spoon vibe so many others cling to. Some of the bartenders can be a little cocky to the upper east side yuppies that sometimes trickle in to the whole neighborhood, but it's made pretty clear to them that they can take off their ties & relax or head uptown if they want to hang with the LES.. yeah this place sometimes get busy on the weekends, & its still always a good time
Well worth leaving Brooklyn for – What can I say? There is NO other bar that gets me out of Brooklyn on a regular basis. Great/hot staff, a really good crowd, a good mix of music, and reasonably priced, well-made drinks! What's there not to like? Check out the constantly changing beer and the various special events and parties. They literally had to ask me to leave last Saturday because it was 4AM, it IS the stupid law (we need 24hr bars in NYC!), so I will be riding that train back into Manhattan again this weekend to get my fill!
You guys are great – Never been there before till last night. I called last minute for my party & they accomodated beyond my expectations. Love the music!! I hear they're getting DJs soon too on weekdays. I love the crowd here, definitely a lot of cool people to find, we're sold.
Great Beer, Great music, Great time!!! – Went with a friend sober, left wasted!!!!! the service was good and the music was great. I like the old black and white movies on the TVs. And it seemed like the staff was haven a great time, which always helps with the Atmosphere... (will be back)......!!!!
LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!! – stanton public is becoming one of my favorite hangout places. the drinks are amazing and there is such a huge beer selection. they have drink specials every night of the week and if it's your birthday you drink for free!!!! the staff is sooo fun and will make sure you have a good time. the music is also great as well.
