It was announced earlier in the spring that Hog's Head Tavern would debut on Hamilton Place by 142nd Street and construction on the site is quickly finishing up.  We had a glimpse pass the plywood out front yesterday and took a quick shot of the incredible black subway tile and the plaid patterned floor hidden within.  This will be one of the more designer interiors to open uptown in recent years and the offering of micro-brews will surpass others in Harlem.  On a side note, we were able to talk to one of the owners and discovered both partners actually live in the neighborhood.  As for an opening date, Hamilton Heights brew enthusiasts should expect just a scant handful of weeks for a the big debut if all goes well.  Check out the original rendering in our past post: LINK


  1. Looking forward to it.

  2. It seems like the openings of new restaurants is a bit slower this year than last year in Hamilton Heights. Have been waiting months for Hog's Head, at the Wallace, and Grill on the Hill.

    Why is that?

    1. If you look at the floors of Harlem Public, they are poured concrete. The Wallace has hardwood floors and decorative mosaic tiles at the entrance. Restaurants that are opening now are paying more attention to the design details of the space so this might be the reason why.

  3. Will they have food too?
    Hope it's not just burgers/pub food.

    We need more and varied ethnic cuisines in HH!
