The Corner Social

This Harlem drinkery decorated with exposed brick, white subway tiles and a working steel fireplace pours draft beers and signature cocktails the 20-foot-long reclaimed-wood bar. Brews include Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale ($8) and Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner ($7), while drinks like the Uptown Tea with Jack Daniels, grapefruit, lemon and simple syrup and the Harlem Sage with vodka, ginger liqueur, pineapple juice, lemon and its namesake herb (both $14) hold down the front where liquor is concerned. Settle into a tweed banquette or communal high-top for a full-fledged meal. The all-day menu includes a crab cake, shrimp and arugula salad ($16), smothered pork chops and grits ($21) and mac and cheese with shrimp, mushrooms and spinach ($18). Come earlier in the day to take advantage of the brunch deal: All entrees come with a Bloody Mary, mimosa or Corner Social Lager. Popular options include the green eggs and ham with chive oil and home fries ($16), crab cake and eggs with guacamole ($19) and a brie and wild mushroom grilled cheese ($14).

assaulted black lives matter protesters on monday, drawing blood.  unapologetic.  expensive food in gentrifying harlem, run by a recently arrived argentinian woman.  Tried to lock black lives matter activists in and threatened to call police during a presentation about police brutality by the activists.  Furthermore, signs of black lives matter protesters were torn up by staff, with no apology by owner afterwards.  tourists should be aware this place is emblematic of racism in us, and in nyc in particular. 


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.
