Taproom 307: The folks behind Mad Dog & Beans, Black Bear Lodge and Whiskey River must have robbed a bank recently, as Tap Room 307 is the second bar they’ve opened in a month (Bierhaus NYC). This time, they’ve teamed up with the folks from Beckett's, amongst other Irish-ish pubs, to offer their attempt at a swank craft beer nirvana. Now most gastropubs don’t have 42 beers on tap (notably, Firestone’s Double Jack, $7) or so many unique and quite tasty beer-made food offerings (Monday night’s special is beer fondue!), but most of the city’s better craft beer bars also aren’t infiltrated by fresh-out-of-college Murray Hill drunks either. Tap Room is frequently out of the beers you want and, quite frankly, doesn’t have that exotic of a selection if they truly want to compete with the big boys of the city’s beer game (Rattle ‘n’ Hum and Gingerman, for example). Unfortunately, even the dim lighting and dark wood surroundings (including a coveted row of booths), can’t hide you from the overly loud crowd and over-crowded space.
