Craft beer, pinball, and ping pong at Treadwell Park NYC!

Pretzels as big as your head!

Great new bar where the mediocre Neely’s BBQ used to be. It’s always a joy when my beer swilling cohorts alert me to a new craft beer discovery right in my own hood on the Upper East Side of NYC. As they were already there and invited me to join them I was unaware that a new business had opened up in this space, and as I sauntered up the street after exiting the subway a few blocks away I saw the sign on the outside for Treadwell Park.

Whoa! Terrific beer list, cocktails, ambiance, food, ping pong tables, pinball machines, popcorn machine, and flat screens all around. Holy cow – a working fireplace too! I could not believe my eyes. Can I move in? I won’t take up much space. I’ll sleep on the floor under the ping pong table.

Very nice woodsy urban cabin decor. Plenty of seating along the bar, high tops with stools, and heavy picnic benches that seats couples or groups.

Varied menu with a little something on it for everyone. Brats, sandwiches, finger foods, salads, and some main course entrees. I found the prices fair for the area, and for the type of delish craft beers curated on their list, but may seem a bit pricey for some. Still, I’m happy to shell out a few more shekels to hang out in a chill place like this and enjoy my time here.

Now this is what I call a fun bar and restaurant! Photo credit – Treadwell Park

20 rotating draught craft beers and ciders, with a selection in bottles, cask beer, and hand crafted artisanal cocktails on hand so there is a lot to choose from. Hot damn! A few of us enjoyed a terrific Smoked Chipotle & Cherry Milk Porter, while I decided on a refreshing IPA and Pilsner. So much beer love!

The cigar bar (Merchants) is still downstairs on the level below so if you want a puff on a stogie after a few brews the option is close by. Bathroom is down on that level too.

Along with our brews we decided to do some noshing. Um, oh yeah – GET THE MONSTER SIZED HOT PRETZEL! Huge, soft, hot, sexy. You’re welcome. Thank me later. You will.

Loved the look and feel of this bar, as there is nothing else like it in the area. Fun vibe and friendly staff. C’mon – they have pinball and ping pong here! Wonderful new spot on the UES to get your brews and games on!

Mmmm… and hot pretzels.

  1. Hey Phil! That looks like my kind of place…homey and cozy and interesting choices for beer. Smoked chipotle and cherry milk porter? Are you kidding me? Do they ship bottles to Wisconsin?

    Glad your buds found a new place for you to hang out. I’m looking at the photo of the ping pong tables in relation the pinball machines. I wonder if any of the pinball players have had to worry about wild pingpong balls flying there way… :-p

    1. Hey Mary!

      Yeah, the beer list here is no joke! I was more worried about flying into the fireplace, as they are all close by. A few more of those beers…..

  2. Let’s see, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I’m vegetarian and now even the joy of salt has been stripped from my diet due to health issues. So first, salivating over that pretzel! I think if I rubbed most of the salt off it would be OK. Second, I still enjoy reading about your beer-swilling brat-eating adventures!

    1. Hey Coleen!

      That’s not a bad idea! I should tell them to put treadmills over in the ping pong room. Drink a beer while walking it off at the same time.
