Harold’s Tap Room is expanding to absorb a portion of Alli’s Pizzaria’s dining space, adding booths and additional counter seating bringing the expanded Tap Room indoor capacity to 76 guests with additional outdoor seating. In addition to the expanded footprint, the Tap Room will also expand its menu and drink offerings. Guests can now order cocktails, wine and beer, and choose from a larger menu featuring pizzas, salads, sandwiches, desserts and more. New items include the Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwich, Ham & Cheese Sliders and Farmer’s Salad. The Tap Room will now serve 75 beer options, including 14 craft beers on tap, as well as eight wines on tap, a variety of infused cocktails, a full bar and after-dinner coffee beverages.
The Happy Hour offerings are also increasing to include new features on food in addition to drinks and runs from 3 – 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. A limited menu from the Tap Room, including pizza, will be available for take-out through www.haroldsheights.com, Uber Eats and Door Dash.
In addition to the expansion of Harold’s Tap Room space and menu, a portion of the former Alli’s Pizzaria space will be sublet after a demising wall is constructed closing off the front 1,000 square feet of the restaurant. Circa Real Estate will sublet the front W 19th Street portion of the former Alli’s space. Construction is underway and plans to be completed by the beginning of 2017. Both the upstairs restaurant and Tap Room will remain open throughout the construction process.
“We are excited to expand the Tap Room and provide our guests with even more seating, food and drink options,” Alli Jarrett, owner of Harold’s Tap Room, said. “Pizza has been a part of what we’ve done at Harold’s since day one and with the influx of Tap Room visitors since our opening in May, it made sense to extend our pizza offerings with the expansion of the bar. We’re thrilled to welcome Circa Real Estate to the block and look forward to many exciting things to come for 19th Street in 2017.”
