Students and twenty-something patrons nostalgic for their college days will want to check out Village Pourhouse, a boisterous beer bar offering enough Happy Hours, theme nights, sports events, and cheap food to satisfy just about anyone.

Preppy beer scholars and NYU jocks from the dorms across the street pile in to the rustic front lounge to sample one of the fifty bottles and twenty-four drafts available before settling in to shout at whatever game is playing on the twenty-two flat-screen TVs.

Patrons more interested in some comfort food or tipsy conversation with a sweetheart can huddle up in the comfy red booths in the two side rooms.

The rowdy crowd gets pumped up for nightly themes like Trivia, White Trash, and Monday Night Football, while a DJ turns Friday and Saturday nights into wild, drunken dance parties made for flirting and singing along to Bon Jovi.

Sports and college partying aside, the Pourhouse’s selection, beer programs, and monthly brewery tastings also make it a great spot for beer connoisseurs to indulge their passion.

Hopping just about every night, Village Pourhouse is a good bet for hard partiers and beer enthusiasts looking for the perfect mix of slob and snob.

Tip from Lucas:

Ask the bar about the Pourhouse Passport program. It includes fifteen beers from fifteen countries, and every time you drink one, they stamp the passport with the country of origin. And once you get all fifteen, you get a free ‘I Drank Around the World at The Village Pourhouse’ t-shirt!

A step above your normal douchey bar
Mark S. Dec 10, 2012
This place is not glamorous, not hip, not flashy or really actually impressive in any way. But I still like it god damn it. A surprisingly good selection of beers and decent bar food are pluses. The staff is friendly. But what is great is how big the place is. New York City bars are often overpacked, but even when this place is jumping you can pass by someone without knocking the drinks out of their hand. It also sort of feels like two bars in one, as the front is like a normal bar and the back is SLIGHTLY more loungeish (slightly, don't get on my case) It's not too expensive, either. So drink up and enjoy.

This place is first and foremost a college bar. If you like getting drunk with NYU students awkwardly dancing to the best over played hits of the last decade then you will have a great time here - and I mean that in a non-judgey way...we all have those nights where we want inexpensive beer and the opportunity to act like a 21 (or 19 year old) without being judged. The space is also pretty large if you want to go make out with some random dude in a corner without all your friends seeing you, or whatever the young'uns are doing these days. They do have a very good beer selection though which does redeem it a bit from solely being a drink hole.
Average beer bar with jerk-off staff

For a long time, I held the Village Pourhouse in semi-decent regard--they have a bunch of nice beers on tap, decent burgers, and a fun fratty atmosphere that scratches the Animal House itch pretty well. The last time I tried to go here, though, my friend and I, both sober, were denied entry, and upon asking why the doorman switched from telling us we weren't allowed in to threatening to knock us out in the blink of an eye. I don't care if you have Christ's blood on tap, blow me off with a little tact. Anyway, if you feel like a cheesteak and a pitcher with the looming threat of getting your ass kicked by a bouncer for no reason, come on down!

You're typical run of the mill one step-up from a dive bar: Sports, College, Charity Events. The bar always has a lively crowd and yes it is definitely always packed with guys like Lucas. Whether you're here for Happy Hour or an Event, it always seems to draw a lively crowd. The entrance has a long bar with an area for sitting to order food. Make your way to the back, which I personally prefer, and a second bar opens up into a dance floor. There are booths along the wall, so you can throw your jacket, etc. in the winter and mingle. The staff is amazing and no matter how loud it is or how many people are at the bar, they always do a good job serving. The music is usually good for dancing too.
Great to work with

I hosted a charity event here and really enjoyed the space. We reserved the whole back room and ended up filling it with about 200 people... it was packed but really fun! The staff were great and very attentive, making sure everyone was taken care of at all times. I'd definitely recommend Pourhouse for an event and in general. There were a lot of people watching sports that day and the vibe just seemed very fun and relaxed.
Good sports bar
Jason R. Sep 29, 2012
Fun place with lots of seating space and Tv's everywhere. Its good whether your trying to watch the game or party hard afterwards.
Great Place
Ben F. Sep 21, 2012
This is a great spot to meet up with friends and have a few drinks or food. Relaxed atmosphere great, always fun.
Beer and more!
Sam H. Aug 19, 2012
I've been to village pourhouse many a time, and it's always fun. Definitely a spot to hit up with friends whether its to have a night out drinking or for even food. They have bomb food, I'd recommend the mac n cheese. It's also a great spot to catch the game, especially if you're a KU Jayhawk fan as I'm pretty sure it's also a KU alumni bar. All in all, Pourhouse is a reliable go to place for a night out with friends.
