The Peculier Pub
The Peculier Pub

Venerated by locals, village folk, and New York University students, the Peculier Pub is a 30-year beer veteran of Greenwich Village. Unassuming windows and steps lead to the red doors of beer bliss. Three hundred brands topple the beer menu. Classic rock pounds from the old school jukebox. College coeds, suited professionals, and in-the-know tourists settle into wooden booths, clutching Chimay, Singha, and Baltika.

Named after the Old Peculier English beer by Theakson, the pub offers a double-sided menu that wrangles the world's best beers into the Manhattan bar scene. Brews come from Argentina and Colombia. They represent Kenya and Morocco. They hale from Thailand, Germany, and the Czech Republic. Bartenders are experts in their craft. Depending on what you order, they pour it into the appropriate fluted, tapered, or chalice-style vessel. It's a sophisticated surprise in a simply decorated bar.

If bottles aren't your preference, choose from the 15 taps offering smooth pours for fussy connoisseurs. Or if you like your drink with a kick, try a special pint of the 9% Delirium Tremens Strong Ale from Belgium. Mixed drinks, hard liquor and beer-tails are also available.

Classic pub fare helps patrons build up their thirst. The full menu features wings, fries, and mozzarella sticks as well as quesadillas and pizzas. If you want something heartier, order a burger or wrap. A Trappist beer always tastes better when paired with a grilled dish.

Sitting at the edge of Bleeker Street, the Peculier Pub is a choice spot to meet up with friends for a classic pint and then proceed down the line of Greenwich bars. Check the website for new acquisitions and monthly specials.

This is a good place after class. The jukebox is sweet. Some people don't like the wood booths and low ceiling. But hey this bar's been here for 30 years.
