girls keep an eye on your drinks – Puck Fair is great if you're looking to get ruffied (seriously, it happened to my roommate and me on separate occasions) or generally treated like dirt by the extremely rude waitresses and smug bartenders who will do anything to make a buck. A lot of creepy 30-something males.
Fun Times – I went here last night for a birthday party, and I had a ton of fun. The bartenders are gracious, and super fast! They have so many beers on tap that I've never heard of, and one of the bartenders let me try the beers to see which one I would want! We sat upstairs, which was nice, but not totally secluded since we could see the crowd on the main level and therefore go down when we wanted to. The waitress for our table was also very sweet and fast. I don't remember her name, but look for the tiny cute waitress with the british accent! We also ordered the edamame and calamari, both of which were excellent. Overall I would recommend this place to anyone looking to go to a bar, but not looking for the typical crowded bar scene. With all the tables they have, and the downstairs, it almost had a bar/lounge feel (though don't me wrong, it's a far cry from actually be a lounge). The music was also great to dance or just listen to.
Good beer list – If you're in the area, it's a fun place to take a rest from shopping to have a beer - they have a nice list.
Good Irish bar – Nice bar with good drinks and bar food. Downstairs is a cozy seating area and this bar has one of the cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen. Some of the prices are a little high but nothing outrageous.
AMAZING PUB! – Big, roomy but surprisingly intimate Irish pub on the edge of Soho. Cute bartenders, fun crowd, a great place to meet people.
Crowded Irish Bar – This is an Irish Bar located in Nolita just off of Houston. There is a main bar and then another level below. Both areas tend to get very crowded. Prices are a little expensive, $5 for Coors Light. If you're looking to meet somebody it's a good place to go, however if you're looking for a quiet conversation, then this is not recommended especially since a lot of the bars in the area have more of a loungy feel.
User review by ooloo – Waitress was extremely rude. We waited for 15 minutes without any service, then went down to the bar to get drinks because we figured there was no table service. Waitress then comes up to us and says it's table service only, and proceeds to tell us that she may have to ask us to leave if anyone else wants the table. Really bad.
Get your Mc on – Visited on a Sunday night and walked into a live Irish music Jam.
Great sound and a few wily lasses jiggin it up made it even more entertaining.
Worst Bar in Manhattan – Horrible, horrible yuppie bar. I almost went dizzy from all of the striped shirts. They really should transport this place from SoHo to the Upper East Side so the patrons don't have to travel so far downtown.
The bathroom was very clean though - walked in, used it, then turned around and walked east straight out the door.
An inviting paean to the Emerald Isle. – Almost cavernous in its sweep, Puck Fair's bi-level main floor is all dark wood and muted murals. The wall behind the long bar--it stretches 40-odd feet into the back of the room--is covered in a collage of rugby images, the faces of Irish schoolchildren and traditional song lyrics attesting to the legend of Puck. Live music in the loft area is a nice complement to the overall casual feel of the place. The pub menu, drolly dubbed "Puck Fare," offers burgers, salads, bangers and mash and a tasty Irish breakfast with several types of sausage. Given its location, it's a perfect place to begin or end your downtown affairs in good company.
