District Tap House, Your Friendly Neighborhood Hangout

District Tap House, Your Friendly Neighborhood Hangout

This past week, I had the chance to sample innovative cocktails and mouthwatering cuisine at District Tap House, a lively craft beer bar and restaurant that opened up shop in the Garment District earlier this year. When I visited on a Tuesday evening, the main portion of the venue was bustling with an after-work crowd as I made my way to the establishment’s private backroom, Vig, which can seat up to 80 people and can also be booked for mixology classes.  

In the intimate space, I enjoyed samplings from District Tap House’s new American small plates menu—crafted by the restaurant’s executive chef, Harrison Mosher of Alta fame—including creamy mac & cheese, with smoked gouda, fontina and toasted bread crumbs; crushed fingerling potatoes, with horseradish foam; and the flavorful District Burger, made with 6 oz. grass-fed beef and topped with bacon and fontina cheese. On the beverage front, this is the perfect place for old-school libations—including selections on tap, like the signature Moscow Mule, which packs a pretty perfect punch; as well as a refreshing Frisco, made with Old Forrester bourbon, fresh lemon and Benedictine served over one large ice cube with a large lemon twist.

Speaking of ice cubes, the folks at District Tap House have upped the game on the run-of-the-mill block of ice—offering a selection of flavored cubes (think ginger, spice apple and more), which the bartenders are more than happy to help patrons pair with the perfect spirits. Beer lovers can also enjoy 50 different beers on tap, 25 canned beers and 62 bottled brews.
