Our Story

Mess Hall Is a neighborhood bar specializing in craft beer & spirits in a warm and masculine environment. Set to open late winter/ early spring, it is the love child of uptown coffee shop moguls Aaron Baird and Karen Cantor (Double Dutch, Chipped Cup, Lenox Coffee) and downtown nightlife Singer/Songwriter Shanna Sharp. The three Harlem residents are excited to bring a charming space with rustic cocktails and food in a vibrant and popular area of Harlem.
