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.
