No longer do beer enthusiasts must roam aimlessly through Manhattan’s West Village in search of an establishment that offers a vast selection of brews in a fun, friendly atmosphere, sans the raucous college crowd.
Sporting 40 drafts dispensed thru 60 taps, 150 bottles and an authentic cask engine, Amity Hall has been turning down the noses of even the pickiest beer snobs in NYC since its opening.
A converted old furniture factory named after its original address (West 3rd street used to be known as Amity Street back in 1904), the 2-level beer hall–surrounded by dark wood, tables made from old radiators, and two working fire places–offers approximately 20 craft brews on constant rotation.
While quenching your thirst with some of the finest regional beers and microbrews out there, you can also feast on one of Amity Hall’s many colossal-sized burgers. The Amity Hall Signature Burger—gruyere, bacon jam, with crispy onions on a brioche bun—is bursting with outrageous flavor sure to please your carnivorous palate.
For the herbivore patron, there’s a variety of dishes– such as the Margherita Pizza (Fresh mozzarella, San Marzano Tomatoes, Aged Pecorino, Teardrop Tomatoes and Basil), and the Chipotle Mac & Cheese, to nourish your veggie-loving soul.
Drink up, and have a one “Hall” of a time.
