Amsterdam Ale House review image

Amsterdam Ale House

Amsterdam Ale House plays sports on a few TVs, but it feels less like a sports bar and more like a casual neighborhood spot than any other place on this stretch of Amsterdam Avenue. They have over 30 beers on tap, many of which are unusual options from relatively small domestic and international breweries, and the space tends to fill up with big groups drinking and sharing bar food. They serve food until 2am, so keep it in mind for drinks and a bite after a show at the Beacon Theatre a block away.
