Craft Beer Bar & Restaurant Set To Open In May 2017
The Yard House is tapping into a new area of Southern California and is bringing its restaurant and bar, including 130 taps of beer, to downtown Burbank.
The new Yard House will open in late May at 110 East Palm Avenue at First Street.
It contains 12,200 square feet with a capacity of 624, including outside dining. The spacious floor plan, which is lofty and open, has an industrial vibe with a mix of warm woods coupled with stainless steel accents.
A collection of original abstract and artwork by Jerome Gastaldi will fill the walls.
Hiring for this location will begin in March; applicants can apply in-person and receive same-day interviews for the 200 available positions.
This is part of the Yard House empire, now involving 65 locations, which started in Long Beach’s Shoreline Village.
“Our success is attributed to our humble beginnings here in Southern California,” said Yard House President Michael Kneidinger. “We’re excited to bring our concept to Burbank and its residents. Downtown has a terrific synergy of mixed-use, and we feel Yard House will be a nice complement adding balance to a dynamic collection of restaurants, shops and entertainment. “
Yard House’s calling card is its draft beer selection, and the new Downtown Burbank location will boast130 taps including several reserved for local and regional brewers. Its keg room maintains a consistent 36-38 degrees and can house as much as 4,000 gallons of beer at any given time.
Beer is served by the half yard, traditional pint and goblet with six-pack sampler options.
The Yard House is also known for its Chalkboard Series, which features a selection of small, limited-release beers from mostly craft brewers that rotate frequently keeping the selection both innovative and fresh. These featured beers are listed on a digital chalkboard displayed above the center-island bar.
The Yard House also has a full bar with cocktails and wine.
The menu is also extensive and much better than bar food. This means that wherever a Yard House opens, it becomes a community gathering place for sports, hanging out as a nightlife bar and, of course, Happy Hours.
Speaking of which, the Happy Hour is Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m., and Sunday-Wednesday from 10 p.m., until closing. It features select full-portion appetizers starting at $5 and beer, wine and cocktails specials.
The Yard House is open daily for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.
