Bar of the Day: Union Hall

by -

This is the fifth in our series on the venues featured in the Brooklyn Beer Book. In honor of the snow/slush storm, today’s spotlighted establishment is Union Hall, the huge Park Slope bar with bocce courts and a great performance space downstairs, plus roaring fireplaces, a library and plenty of squishy arm chairs to curl up in until spring arrives.


702 Union St., Park Slope, 718-638-4400

What it is: A reconstituted 5,000-square-foot warehouse turned bar/library/bocce court/music, performance, educational venue. Basically, a total Renaissance bar.
Why we love it: Union Hall is like the phenomenal older sibling who happens to be good at everything. Join the bocce league, read a book in a plush chair by the fireplace, see music, learn science, laugh at a comedy show or simply drink and nosh.
Who to bring: Everyone from dates to co-workers. Multi-nooked space is conducive to an intimate night out or a raucous good time.
What to order: A basket of corndogs.
Union Hall fun fact: A cabinet downstairs contains an ostrich egg and stuffed bird.
