Address: 2153 Frederick Douglass Blvd.

Walk along Frederick Douglas Blvd. in the area real estate agents dubbed "SoHa" and you'll be immediately drawn to 116th's large sports bar, Harlem Tavern. Joining the many restaurants that have sprouted up in the nabe in recent years, this beer garden is always buzzing with activity. On any given night, you can join the groups of fans catching major sporting events on the multiple flat screens. Stop buy during the day on the weekend and you'll see families enjoying brunch as a jazz quartet provides ambient music. Though Harlem Tavern is years away from qualifying as a Harlem staple, it has been a (mostly) welcomed addition to the neighborhood.
