Eighteen taps dispense craft and commercial beers (Goose Island, Stella) at this Harlem drinkery, decorated with exposed brick, white subway tiles and a working steel fireplace. Boozers can also choose from more than 40 bottles (Hitachino, Peroni) and classic cocktails at the 20-foot-long reclaimed-wood bar. Settle into a tweed banquette or communal high-top for a full-fledged meal—the menu includes lobster mac and cheese, semolina-crusted branzino and buttermilk-fried oysters, all made by chef Jonathan Romans (Tribeca Grill, Southgate).

I visited Corner Social after dinner nearby at the Red Rooster. The place was busy, but not uncomfortably crowded, and the vibe was festive and really fun. We snagged seats at the bar, enjoyed a solid beer selection, and listened to music as we got pumped at this, our first stop in a fun night out. I haven’t had the food, but the bartenders were efficient and pleasant. It’s great spots like these that are reinvigorating the Harlem food and drink scene. I definitely recommend stopping in as there are always great bars nearby - you can make a great night of it with a group of friends.

I've been here for brunch, dinner, and late night. 


Brunch is amazing. Doors are open so when it's nice out you can sit outside or not but still feel a nice breeze. Food was amazing! Had the 3 egg organic omelet w/spinach & Gruyere cheese. The flavors blended soooo good!! Will def order this again. Actually tried to yesterday but got there at 4:20 & brunch ends at 4.


Dinner. Kind of expensive for Harlem but worth the price. I had the crab-cakes & my friend had the lasagna. We both loved it. Waiter was kind of moody in the beginning but warmed up & was pretty nice afterwards. Nice atmosphere. Not too loud (though we were there early for dinner- 5pm). 


Late night. If you like crowds, nowhere to sit but good music and decent drinks, then no complaints. I come here once in a while. But the crowd is a bit much & I hate standing.


All in all cool spot. Another gem in my Harlem neighborhood.
