Welcome to Woodhul Winebar!
In 1792, Richard M. Woodhull purchased a large piece of land in Brooklyn surrounding N. 2nd Street and extending to the East River, in hopes of drawing crowded Manhattan dwellers to “the suburbs.” In 1800 he named the area Williamsburgh, after his surveyor Jonathan Williams. We’re not exactly sure why, but in 1855 the “h” was dropped from the name Williamsburg as it was incorporated into the city of Brooklyn. And so, as a nod to history, we dropped the “l” off the last name of our neighborhood’s founder.
Our focus at Woodhul is, first and foremost, wines from around the globe: from Europe to South Africa, New York to California and beyond. And on those days when you’ve had your fill of the grape, we offer a sizable range of small batch bourbons, classic and modern cocktails, and craft beers.
Hungry? Our menu features a broad selection of sharable plates, inventive flatbreads, and artisanal cheese and charcuterie. (The kitchen is open every day until 2am.)
