Park Slope might not be getting a Hooters anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean that the area isn’t going to be filling up with other new businesses. One such business, Die Koelner Bierhalle, is moving closer to opening its doors. Construction is still being done on the building’s interior, but the facade of the German-style beer hall is intact and looking just about ready for business. As previously reported on Brownstoner, the bar will have 30 German draft beers and will be run by the former manager of Der Schwarze Kölner in nearby Fort Greene. Located at 84 St. Marks Place, near the corner of 4th Avenue, the beer hall will offer bar-goers an alternative to nearby watering holes like the Cherry Tree and Pacific Standard. The bar’s website reports that it will be opening in Spring 2012, which means you should be able to say “Prost!” there sooner rather than later. –By Evan Bleier Update: Correct spelling of business name is now in place.
