Jon Bloostein—owner of Heartland Brewery and Houston Hall—has expanded his sudsy holdings with a retro-style beer hall in NoMad. Beyond the reclaimed St. Paul's church signage in front—still bearing the name of Reverend W.H.A. Booker—find Greenpoint Beer Works brews at the dark-wood bar, such as an apricot ale, an oatmeal stout and a red lager. But those looking for a stiff drink can choose from cocktails like a peach mojito, a jalapeño margarita and a rosemary-Scotch quaff, the Mark Twain. Bar bites are of the fusion variety—chicken tikka masala wontons and pastrami Reuben spring rolls—while entrées skew more traditional (burgers, fish-and-chips). Circular metal chandeliers, antique irons and sepia-stained framed photos decorate the space.
