Beer Garden to be Frankford Hall

Michael Klein is reporting that Stephen Starr’s beer garden has a name, Frankford Hall. Details are scarce on the project but as for a name, we might not love it but we do like the images it drums up. The Frankford name speaks not only to its location on Frankford Avenue but also to the Teutonic roots of the Frankford section of Philadelphia, which was settled by German immigrants in the 1600s. It beats the confusingly named Piazza at Schmidts. “Hall” is also promising as we imagine a large room like the Hofbräuhaus in Munich with long tables and big steins of beer.

At least that’s what we hope.
