One of the city's largest drinking establishments, Die Koelner Bierhalle, has officially opened for business at 84 St. Marks Place, between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. It's a sprawling, German-style beer hall, serving up 70 varieties of beer (30 drafts, 40 bottles), pretzels, and seven varieties of German sausage, it seats over 200, and it's already packed.
The much-delayed grand opening brings what is sure to be a nightly (daily?) party to this quiet stretch of St. Marks, a street dominated by small townhouses and brownstones. Ten giant communal tables plus a ten-seat bar are sure to do a good job of transporting patrons to the Old Country, helped along by plenty of wooden furnishings and liters of beer. Did I mention beer?
