There is no restaurant and bar in Chelsea or the Flatiron District that’s more warm and inviting, with a Proprietor, Jimmy McSweeney, who’s usually greeting guests and making them feel at home, well into the night. In fact, Crompton has private booths and tables with private sports televisions to watch your own favorite games. There are outlets to charge your phone or tablet, too, but you’ll be so busy making new friends at the expansive bar or joining in on the cheers for your home teams, that you will probably be transported to the moment, while enjoying the finest ales, wines, cocktails, and premium liquors. Crompton Ale House is a short walk to Madison Square Garden, Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, the Fashion District showrooms and shops, the High Line park, Fifth Avenue shopping, Chelsea galleries, Penn Station, and Macy’s.

Crompton Ale House opens daily at 11 AM and closes the next morning at 2 AM. Conveniently situated all on one floor, you’ll find seating at the bar and shared tables, at intimate, plush banquettes and private booths, and at center-floor party tables, amidst evocative lighting and rustic décor. Widescreen, HD televisions are placed high on the walls, with others above the bar and inside or surrounding the booths. The Crompton Ale House décor pays homage to Samuel Crompton, the pioneer of the spinning wheel and an important figure in the Industrial Revolution. Decorative props, indicative of the fashion district shops and their talented designers and tailors, can also be viewed in historical displays with photographs. The event planning opportunities at Crompton Ale House are limitless, whether corporate, anniversaries, pre-wedding, birthday, office parties, or theater panels and receptions.

The Crompton dining and pub menu has multicultural dishes with flair, but if you’re looking for Irish specialties, you’re also in the perfect restaurant. Bites, Shares, & Salads include Chicken Quesadilla with sour cream, guac, and pico de gallo, Calamari with cornmeal cruster and chipotle aioli, Hummus with chickpea and warm pita, Burrata with burrata, heirloom tomatoes, and basil pesto, and Crompton Chopped Salad with romaine, cucumber, tomato, chickpeas, olives, feta, and red wine vinaigrette, topped with shrimp, salmon, chicken, or steak. Homemade Flatbreads include Wild Mushroom with truffle oil, fontina, and arugula, while items on a Roll, served with house cut fries, sweet potato fries, or house salad, include the Reuben, with pastrami, swiss, sauerkraut, and thousand island dressing. Pat La Frieda signature blend Burgers, served with house cut fries, sweet potato fries or house salad, include the Cadillac Burger with guac, pico de gallo, pepper jack, and chipotle aioli. Irish Fare includes Fish & Chips with ale battered Atlantic cod and house cut fries, as well as daily specials.

The Crompton Pasta selection includes Homemade Lasagna with bolognese sauce, fresh ricotta, and mozzarella, as well as daily specials, while Desserts include the birthday-ready favorites, Apple Strudel with vanilla ice cream and Brownie Sundae with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, berries, and whipped cream. Weekend Brunch, Saturdays and Sundays, 4 PM to 7 PM, features a variety of Omelettes, including Wild Mushroom Omelette with cheddar cheese and fresh herbs, as well as Goat Cheese Omelette with tomato confit and fresh herbs. Brunch also features a French Toast brioche with strawberries and cream, traditional Corned Beef Hash, with corned beef, home fries, and egg, and many lunch and dinner items, like Mahi Tacos with grilled mahi, chipotle aioli, avocado, and pickled cabbage.

The Crompton Ale House premium, full liquor bar is proud of its impressive wine list, equally impressive list of beers by the bottle or on draft, and specialty cocktails, like the Ruby with Our/New York vodka, fresh lime, creme de cassis, and champagne, plus the Chelsea Heat with jalapeño infused tequila, blood orange, agave, and smoked salt rim. This Irish restaurant and pub is your essential stop before or especially after the theater, after work, after shopping, after meetings, after a sports event, or before heading home. Every day, 4 PM to 7 PM, is Crompton Happy Hour, and Wednesday night is Ladies Night, 7 PM to 10 PM, with two-for one specialty cocktails. Stop by Crompton Ale House on West 26th Street, between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue, and be sure to tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com!
