Craft Beer and Pizza: Kennedy Town gets another cozy neighborhood pub — this time by the name of Alvy’s. This Holland Street establishment is from the folks behind Soho mainstay The Globe and local craft beer brand Young Master Ales.
Look & Feel: The interiors are designed by Paul Gelinas, whose portfolio includes film sets as well as Young Master ‘s other project, Second Draft in Tai Hang. The space is meant to feel like a straight-shooting bar out of NYC, and is surprisingly simple and almost-opposite-of-trendy in appearance.
On the Menu: Naturally, the Young Master Ales brand shines through on the drinks menu, and there are also specialty beers imported from New York on offer. On the food side, it’s mostly sourdough pizzas with sometimes-funky flavors like “mala” (yes, Sichuan-style); meatballs; and even vodka and pecorino. Bar snacks like char siu latke (potato pancakes) can also be had.
Great For: Drinks with the neighbors. Chill night out.
FYI: Alvy’s also does takeaway.
