☞ REMEMBER: The City's Largest Beer Hall c.1904


The A.H. Meyer’s Pabst Harlem Restaurant building still stands today at West 124th Street just east of FDB/8th Avenue.  One can see from the lower photo that the interior used to be a large dome that had tableseating on the ground floor and apparently a Christmas tree as tall as the ones delivered to Rockefeller Center a few decades later used to be installed inside during holiday season.  Today, the building's architectural details are slowly deteriorating and is basically under utilized as a storage facility.  How great would this be if someone could take over this space and restore it for commercial use again?

    It would be so amazing to have a true German Beer house, with Sausages, Pretzels, Spit roasted Chicken and Pork. And, Great Beer of course!!
