Halfway Haus is a new bar and venue in the historic South Carondelet neighborhood. The bar is so named because it's at the midpoint between the owners' other properties, The Patch Tavern and the Temtor. Halfway Haus has Magic Hat, Pabst and the obligatory Schlafly on tap, as well as a wine list curated by A. Bommarito Wines. There's no kitchen on site, but they'll let you order food in from nearby Kim's Pizza. The long room is pretty spare, but the place comes alive when the bands, duos and solo acoustic acts get a-strummin'. If the evening is fine, the bartender will throw open the garage door that separates the bar area from the patio.
