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, a waterfall, and our outdoor kitchen with a grill and smoker. 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.


Hosting a Private or Special Event

PRIVATE EVENTS are hosted outside our normal business hours: before 4pm Tuesday through Saturday, and anytime Sunday and Monday.

SPECIAL EVENTS are hosted during our normal business hours: Tuesday through Saturday 4-11pm. Please note, booking a special event is not a 'reservation,' but rather guarantees your pre-ordered food will come out on time and our staff will be ready to take care of you. It does not guarantee a table or seating. The beer garden is always first come, first serve.
