A hidden gem. My coworkers and I arrived during happy hour and were promptly seated at a table near the door. We were given iPads that operate as menus and include the food, drink, dessert, and happy hour offerings. I’ve seen a setup like this in a few other restaurants, but there aren’t many. The employees were nice and extremely helpful in answering our questions about their food and beverages. I ordered the delicious fish tacos and buffalo wings, and my coworkers ordered catfish, mac & cheese, and sliders. There were zero complaints. For dessert we ordered the bread pudding w/ ice cream, which can be shared among two slightly full people. My only wish is that the bread pudding had raisins, but I understand that this is an unpopular opinion. I would definitely return for seconds.

My best friend and I visited this spot after a show at the Apollo (just a short walk). It was cozy but quite swanky. I really loved the atmosphere. I guess the day was pretty slow then ramped up so it was a little bit understaffed. Nonetheless, the young woman was very attentive and adapted very well. The food and drink were good but the wings were tiny. The salmon and Greek salad however stopped the show. Very appetizing!! If I'm ever in the area again, I'd stop by. If you are looking for an intimate gathering spot, this is it! The exposed brick interior is to die for also!! Ok I'm done! 😂

The story behind Harlem Ale House

Harlem Ale House is operating in a CIRCA 1860’s Structure that has been in the front line of Harlem history. During the late 1890’s a top floor was added that housed a full bowling alley. 
In the early 1920’s the building became Frank Schaefer’s speakeasy after his original “Saloon” was shut down at 341 Lenox Avenue (just around the corner). 
In the late 1920’s it served as a “Number Hole” for Harlem Hoodlum’s Ulysses Rollins whose boss was the infamous gangster Dutch Schultz. 
During the 1970’s it was the popular “101 Variety Store” AKA “The Candy Store” run by “Fats” a tough Harlem Underworld figure. According to old time Harlem lores a few a few people may have met their demise in the basement of the ill named “Candy Store”. 
All the artifacts displayed on the walls of Harlem Ale House are original to the building and if there is a strong “Masonic” presence it’s because from the early 1920’s until 2010 the building housed many of Harlem Masonic Lodges. The picture hanging on the left side of the mural was taken by James Van der Zee in 1925. Many of Van der Zee’s famous Masonic Photography were taken on the 2nd floor.
