West End Hall – 2756 Broadway, Manhattan, New York City

A new beer hall has arrived on the Upper West Side (maybe the only one?) and I checked it out a couple weeks ago.

West End Hall features 30 bottled beer options and 20 draught beers and ciders on rotation. They have an eclectic menu that ranges from your more traditional beer hall sausages and bratwurst to pulled pork wontons, mussels, salads and Mediterranean spreads (think hummus, tzatziki, etc.). I can easily say that everything I tried was delicious, especially the pulled pork wontons and crab corn fritters.

But what is most appealing about West End Hall is what you can’t see. There is a secret backyard garden that feels like you¹ve entered into an undiscovered hidden gem on the Upper West Side. It’s quiet, peaceful, relaxing and the perfect spot to spend a weekend afternoon hanging out with friends away from the traffic of Broadway.

I recommend checking out West End Hall and enjoying this “secret” backyard beer garden before the rest of the neighborhood catches on!
