Located in one of the most iconic, stylish-scruffy neighborhoods in NYC’s East Village [Alphabet City], Royale is revered for its juicy burgers and increasingly popular craft beer selection.
Owners and friend trio, Dave & Alexis Weakley and Josh Berman met years prior while owning and tending NYC bars – the rest is history.
Boasting the Best Burger in NYCby The Infatuation (thanks!) and a completely renovated backyard patio (an NYC hidden gem & updated since The Infatuation’s visit) is a semi-secret watering hole & respite from the city craze. While we welcome many burger enthusiasts, our other handhelds & starters are not to be passed by – did I mention the crispy chicken sandwich? Or, the tortilla soup (pro tip: add a dash of tabasco – mhmm)!
With its urban-eclectic, rustic-industrial, feel-good vibe, seasonal cocktails, rotating local beers and tasty bites served by our friendly staff on our back & front patios, you’ll be sure to have a memorable time. Drawing a mix of long time residents and new transplants of young artists and professionals alike, the authenticity and community spirit make this one place you’ll be sure to feel right at home! Royale is your perfect spot for dining & sipping with familiar & new friends, family meals and PARTIES of all kinds (birthdays, happy hours and oh yes, even wedding receptions)! Check out our Party Packages.
In addition, the bar boasts seven wall-suspended wide-screen TVs to satisfy the sporting interests of long-time New Yorkers as well as those new transplants looking to support their home team while enjoying a quality burger & brew.
Searching for a home-base bar to sponsor your local softball (or whatever you're into!) team? Contact us and have your own established watering hole after your games. Just because your game is over, doesn't mean the games stop at Royale with our variety of board games!
In short, Royale is a must-visit destination for those who enjoy the three essentials in life:
