Opened last month, Grünhaus is arguably the only traditional beer hall you will find on the Lower East Side. Much like its sister bar, Brooklyn’s Spritzenhaus, Grünhaus is spacious and full of both greenery, and communal tables.
When the weather is cooperative, Grünhaus’s garage-style windows open up, transitioning it into a breezy beer garden. Beyond the inviting atmosphere, Grünhaus also delights with its food and beverage offerings, with 30 rotating beers on tap, as well as ten house sausages, ten dipping sauces, Belgian fries, and Sigmund’s soft pretzels.
Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking with Grünhaus co-owner Emily Shamlian about her new establishment—which has already received rave reviews from the New York Times and UrbanDaddy alike.
