Village Voice's Description

This sprawling, noisy Upper East Side gastropub serves Irish-inspired fare alongside beer and specialty cocktails. Go for sweet fried bangers, fried McClure’s pickles, or a hefty pub-style hamburger. Those looking to keep things light can indulge in a classic wedge salad (generously sprinkled with bacon, of course). Arrive on the early side if you’re looking for a casual place to relax with friends and family: When it’s quiet, you’ll notice the lovely design of the room and the friendliness of the staff. But arrive late in the evening and the Penrose will be a different sort of place, packed full of rowdy singles doing picklebacks like there’s no tomorrow.

Tips from foursquare

  • Brendan C. on 07/28/12

    Another loud filament light bulb filled gastropub employing the failsafe method to young professionals wallets of fried pickles, artisanal drinks, mac and cheese and tiles. Tear for Ship of Fools...

  • Sarah-Jane P. on 08/31/12

    Oyster slides are pretty gross. Taste of the ocean....not in a good way. Didn't make me horny either.

  • Kirsten S. on 07/14/12

    Get the dirty pickle martini and skillet mac and cheese. You won't regret it!

  • Hannah T. on 08/07/13

    Root beer and bourbon and earl grey lemonade with gin!

  • Rob J. on 09/24/12

    Unusually cool downtown vibe on the Upper East at The Penrose! Awesome bartenders, unique (and delicious) cocktails. Great interior design. Great with friends or a date.
