If you wish Kenny was Castaway somewhere much further than Bleecker St, and don't think Willy is Wicked in the way that people from Boston use it, then go to Malt House, which's beering up the NYU-proximate Village with a slick wooden bar, communal tables up front, and a cozy side room that kinda looks like the rec room in a castle thanks to raw stone walls and Gothic sconces.
Beers're all-American and as NY as possible, including specially brewed Malt House Amber and Light, the new Bronx Pale Ale, and Empire White Aphro, which has significantly more hops than the jewphro. Meanwhile, 40-50 craft bottles are augmented by an impressive 30+ cans counting Sly Fox Route 113 IPA, Abita Jockamo, Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat, and Oskar Blues G'Knight, which's what you'll be saying after also drinking Sly Fox Route 113 IPA, Abita Jockamo, and Goose Island's 312 Urban Wheat.
Next-level pub eats're masterminded by an Irish dude who also runs a seafood-centric bar back home, and here makes icy blue mussels & fries and a lump crab cake w/ roasted garlic aioli, plus a ribeye sando w/ provolone sauce and a buttermilk fried chicken burger, which'll ensure your night has anything but a Bitter End.
