This come-one, come-all suds haven brings brew-house cred to Harlem. Beer is the thing, with a focus on crowd-pleasing classics rather than hard-to-find geek bait. A diverse crowd congregates around recycled-wood picnic tables to hoist a selection of ten mostly European drafts—such as malty imperial pints of Fuller's London Pride—plus more than a dozen international bottles, including Harlem’s own Sugar Hill Golden Ale. The Euro-café vibe makes the bar a popular option for weekend brunchers (order a “Bierlini” with strawberry-flavored Früli and prosecco if you need a little hair of the dog), and there’s a full menu of global drinking grub (burgers, empanadas, currywurst) at night as well.
Whatever your poison, Harlem offers several worthwhile drinking options. Red Rooster offshoot Ginny’s Supper Club and cool lounge Shrine are among the best bars in the neighborhood. Bier International and Harlem Tavern have brought craft-beer cred to the locale. For more ideas, consult our selection of restaurants and nightspots.
