Beer Hall Is Slated for Early Summer Opening on Mid-Market

The Argenta complex where Beer Hall will be on the ground level.

We first broke the news about Beer Hall (1 Polk Street at Market) back in October, and now the Chron has an update on the project, which just finally began construction this week. The two people behind it are married couple Jennifer and Andrew Hall, and the 1,000-square-foot space is being designed by Gi Paoletti. And, as we surmised before, it's going to be an "upscale beer bar and craft beer retail shop," sort of like City Beer Store, but more "upscale." And it joins the upcoming Magnolia Brewery, the new Speakeasy taproom, Southern Pacific Brewing Co., and Abbot's Cellar in the new wave of beer-centric spots. [Chron, Earlier]
