Playwright Tavern & Restaurant

202 W. 49th St. New York, NY 10019 | West 40s | 212-262-9263

Location Description:

Best used as a before-theater time-killer, this warm, unassuming restaurant and bar offers a number of draft beers, as well as its own quite strong, home-brewed aplaywright alea ($5 a pint). For those made sleepy by the lackluster portraits of Irish poets on the walls, check out one of the several, prominently-placed TVsaadjusted just loudly enough to drown out nearby conversations.
