About The Guest
Dan McLaughlin
Founder, The Pony Bar

Pony Bar founder Dan McLaughlin got bitten by the beer bug in the mid-’90s, but it wasn’t until he was bartending at The Blind Tiger in New York City’s West Village back in 1999 that he first started thinking about running his own place. He and Pony Bar partner Pat Hughes opened their first in the mid-2000s (Lansdowne Road in Hell’s Kitchen, which is still open), but one wasn’t enough. “I felt I had the know-how and financials to pursue opening a bar that centered on American-made beer from small breweries,” McLaughlin says. From there, Pony Bar was born.
