Downtown Brooklyn, home to many a chain store, will soon be getting a giant “relaxed and unpretentious” beer hall, per city documents.
Fulton Beer Hall will join the ranks of Brooklyn’s large-scale watering holes, like Williamsburg’s Radegast Hall & Biergarten, Crown Heights’ Berg’n, and Gowanus’ Koelner BierHalle. According to a proposal by Gerard Rooney, owner of Myrtle Avenue’s Putnam’s, Fulton Beer Hall will seat more than 300 people at 49 indoor tables and 12 outdoor ones.
“FBH will strive to be a place for people to come to relax with friends, unwind after a long day at work and enjoy great beer and great food,” the proposal to community board 2 said. “We will be leaving the corporate, cold, impersonal service to our competitors in the neighborhood.” It’s proposed to open at 141 Lawrence St., near MetroTech off Fulton Mall, so the closest “cold, impersonal” competitors will be a Golden Krust, Lee’s Villa Chinese Restaurant, and infiniTEA cafe.
In addition to oceans of beer, it will also serve food: wood-fired pizza, salads, pretzels, organic chicken and steaks. and to be open until 4 a.m. daily.
