About The City Beer Hall

Housed within one of downtown Albany’s most beautiful, unique, and historic buildings, The City Beer Hall has five distinct areas in which we hold events. Our second floor Rodeo Bar, with its warm, rustic feel and large windows, is our most popular location. Our picturesque outdoor Beer Garden allows guests to enjoy sunny weather and a summer’s breeze with friends. The Speakeasy 518 offers a unique and classy 1920’s atmosphere, featuring some of the best artisan cocktails in the capital region. The intimate Pine Room, with beautiful wooden accents located within the second floor, is ideal space for a small dinner, casual lunch, or professional meeting. Our cozy Main Hall, with its extensive and ever-changing draft list, is the perfect setting for any type of gathering. We can accommodate private groups ranging from 15-200 people. With a focus on locally sourced, globally inspired, seasonal cuisine, we offer a variety of menus to compliment these settings. From buffet appetizers, to passed hors d’oeuvres, to full plated dinners, you will find several options to suit your event. Our executive chef, Dimitrios Menagias, is always happy to discuss special requests.
