The Hill at Muza

A Bar, A Beer Garden, A European Staycation

Join us at our bar and garden for carefully selected beers, wines and foods. We pour European half-liter beers, American hops, and unique still and sparkling wines.

Our European-style hidden garden remains open year round with torch flame heaters and artful landscape lighting. In spring, summer and fall our garden features lush flowers and a waterfall. In winter our space and menu transports you to a "cozy ski lodge." Our enclosed space features our bar, hightop tables and elegant lighting - cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

We host private events and serve as a venue for all seasons.

Be sure to checkout our sister restaurant, Muza.

Tree Lighting 2016

JOIN THE FACEBOOK EVENT!

Join us for our Second Annual Tree Lighting: Miracle on 15th St!

THURSDAY 12/1
DOORS OPEN: 4-11PM
TREE LIGHTING: 7PM
CAROLING: 7-9PM

On Thursday, December 1st, at 7 p.m., The Hill at Muza will light an epic 15 foot spruce tree from Bob's Trees in Galway N.Y. The tree will stand on an outdoor "stage" area, about six feet above the beer garden, and will be decorated with 500 feet of twinkling Christmas lights. (Note: The rain date is Saturday December 3.)

For Miracle on 15th Street, The Hill at Muza will deliver, in true Muza spirit, a bona fide flying holiday miracle guaranteed to charm the crowd and warm hearts with small American city pride.

The Rensselyrics, an RPI student acapella group, will perform holiday carols and songs for the crowd from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and will be joined by a special surprise musical guest.

There will be a special house-made hot chocolate red wine, using real chocolate hand whipped by The Hill at Muza team. Hot mulled beer, hot chocolate, beer and wine will be available from the bar, as well as foods from the newly expanded kitchen.

Complimentary plates of Christmas cookies will be served.

This year, to ensure the drink lines move hastily, there will be a second, draft-only, auxiliary bar in the outdoor garden, wrapped like a giant Christmas present with a big bow. The outdoor garden is heated with eight, 9-foot tall flame torch heaters.

For those who like it a little toastier, the enclosed bar space is warmed by a cast iron fireplace. The indoor area will be festively decked with holiday greens, lights, and hundreds of bulbs ornately laced and strewn on the ceiling.
