Frankford Hall: Rolling out the barrel in Fishtown

Tuesday is the debut.

Frankford Hall: Rolling out the barrel in Fishtown


Tuesday, May 17 marks the debut of Frankford Hall, Stephen Starr's interpretation of a German beer garden, on Frankford Avenue just north of Girard in Fishtown.

Yes, Starr in Fishtown -- valet parking and all (it's $6).

Stokes Architecture basically had a crew bang out the brick interior of an industrial building to create the rooms, and create a large courtyard covered in gravel for outdoor seating. Garage doors separate the inside and outside. The space teems with reclaimed industrial metals. There are two ping-pong tables, a space for bands, and a screen for a projection TV that will air only Phillies games.

Food is ordered from a walk-up counter. Three bars are available.

Many German beers will wash down the wursts (including brats, weisswurst, krakauer, kasekrainer, and knockwurst). Two more substantial dishes (roasted chicken and Jager Schnitzel) are on the menu, which is here.

Hours: 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. weekdays, noon to 2 a.m. weekends.
