Fire up your appetite. Ash Hearth & Bar is serving hearty American classics and new favorites.

Our dining destination, Ash, features a simple, seasonal, American menu highlighted by the use of fire and smoke. Hearth cooking allows for the full use of fire. From slow cooking in embers to smoking and charring over an open flame, hearth cooking accentuates an enhanced flavor in all our meats and vegetables.

The open hearth cooking style is unmatched in its ability to bring out flavors and dinner guests.

Emphasis on the lush.

Beneath the soaring Sixth Street Viaduct and along the sunny side of the hotel, you’ll find spacious The Yard. Rain or shine, plush seats invite you to relax, kick back and enjoy the weather.

The Yard features communal fire pits, cozy lounge furniture and is always pet friendly. The Yard comes alive each day — weather permitting — May through October, and features weekly Wednesday Yappy Hours,  Thursday Bike Nights, Sunday brunch and much more.
