With an outdoor seating capacity for around 40, Der Schwarze Kölner is comparably bijou to other bar cum beer garden offerings in NYC, yet many find the newly opened restaurant bar endearing. Devised to replicate the ideal of a traditional Berlin tavern, Der Schwarze Kölner manages to exude a fashionable appeal, with plenty of strategic down-lighting and a few potted shrubs for good measure. Eighteen German draft taps, coupled with over 20 native bottled ales allow New Yorker’s to sample the delights Germany has been enjoying for centuries – perfectly paired with a Kölsche menu, offering nine alternative types of wurst.
