5. The Bronx Beer Hall

The Bronx does have a beer hall. You think all the best beer halls are in Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn? Well you are wrong. The Bronx Beer Hall is fantastic and completely under-the-radar. On Arthur Avenue in the Upper West Side of the Boogie Down, The Bronx Beer Hall is obviously proud of its Bronx heritage–you can see it in the title and the color scheme (which resembles the Bronx flag).

During the spring and summer we have witnessed the place get packed to catch Yankee games and indulge themselves on panini’s and pizza from the local Arthur Avenue Retail Market. The beer list includes beers and ciders from local and upstate NY breweries, beers you really can’t find anywhere else in the city. Do yourself a favor and get your butts up to Arthur Avenue.
