Chelsea / Flatiron, New York –
Spanning sixteen thousand square feet over three floors, Stout NYC is an immense but homey Irish pub usually filled with a bustling crowd of young professionals – not to mention the yells of rowdy University of Texas football fans who have made the pub their official hangout on fall Saturday afternoons.
Originally designed to look like a country carriage house, the sprawling wood-and-brick labyrinth has enough smaller rooms and cozy corners to keep the atmosphere intimate and to cater to the diverse patrons, from the commuters sampling some of the two hundred beers on tap at the sixty-foot bar on the main floor to friends and co-workers gathered at tables on the mezzanine to chat and watch the action below.
Tables on all three levels offer plenty of space for diners, while those looking for more entertainment can head to the cellar, home to Dart Alley, a private billiards room, Saturday night karaoke parties, and occasional live bands that get the energetic guests out on the dance floor.
Its proximity to Madison Square Garden has made Stout a popular pit stop for sports lovers grabbing a drink before a game and concert goers looking for an upbeat way to end the evening, though the place is a sure bet just about any time for a big crowd and lively vibe.
Midtown workers, young professionals, commuters, outer-borough types, former jocks, and sports enthusiasts, 20s to 30s.
DJs spin Top 40. Occasional live music featuring 80s pop and tribute bands. Dart boards available Tu–Sa from 5pm. Private billiard tables rented at about $250/3hrs. Karaoke Idol on Saturdays. Private party spaces for groups of 10 to 400.
Extensive menu includes vegetarian burgers, bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie, and Irish smoked salmon.
Appetizers $6–$12, raw bar/oyster bar $10–$30, salads $10–$16, burgers and pizza $10–$15, veggie burgers $11–$26. Beer $6–$20, wine $6.50–$8.50, cocktails $8+.
Casual: mostly jeans, occasional team jerseys.
Wednesdays for the free stout beer tastings. Saturday and Sunday afternoons for football, and Saturday nights for karaoke and occasional live bands. Any time for pre-concert or pre-game dinner and drinks, and Fridays for the start of the weekend.
The Ginger Man (11 East 36th Street) offers an incredible beer selection.
