West Village to Get a Beer Hall From the Dublin Boys of St. Andrews & Stout


Irish brothers Mark and Martin Whelan will be adding to their small gastropub empire with the opening of a new beer hall in the West Village. Amity Hall will open just a few doors down from The Half Pint on West 3rd Street. The Whelan brothers, who are responsible for Maggie’s Place, St. Andrew’s, Fat Annie’s Truck Stop, and the megapub Stout could not be reached for comment, but the manager at Stout — in his charming Irish brogue — said they hope to open Amity Hall “as soon as possible.”
