Harrison’s on Third really, really wants to be your friend. That’s why the recently opened Victorian Village bar allowed newsletter subscribers to choose a color scheme, happy-hour specials and a draft beer (alas, Blue Moon beat Rogue Dead Guy). It also dressed up really nicely to meet you, sporting a new bar, patio, paint job and front windows.
For these reasons — and a few more, involving wings, beer and giant comfy booths in which a regular-sized guy feels like a Hobbit — I formally accept the offer of friendship.
The finished product, which opened last month, sits on the corner of Harrison and 3rd avenues, a spot formerly occupied by B. Hampton’s. While the layout remains similar, just about everything else has been ripped out and renovated — all but the “four walls and roof,” general manager David Moeser explained.
