Live Your “Bob’s Burgers” Dreams in Mamaroneck’s Famous Hofbrau Tavern

The mixed-use residential and restaurant space in Westchester is on the market after being owned by the same family since 1940.

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a little three-bedroom above your own shop or restaurant — possibly getting into wacky shenanigans on the weekly with your irreverent spouse and three pithy children — then Mamaroneck’s historic Hofbrau building is that dream come true.

Location: 370 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck

Asking Price: $1,400,000; Estimated Annual Taxes: $26,339

Originally purchased by the proprietor of the local Winfield Hotel — a.k.a. “Huber’s,” a popular hang for Babe Ruth, Greta Garbo, and other heyday A-listers — for his son, Joe Huber, 370 Mamaroneck Ave operated for the next 60 years under the name Jo’s Hofbrau.

Though the restaurant space has remained unused for the past 20 years, the family, which still owns the building, has meticulously kept the lower level, polishing the floors, ironing the tablecloths, and even setting the tables, creating a time capsule of the 20th-century bar. Included are original fixtures, built-ins, tin ceiling, and an art deco-inspired antique bar from The Brunswick Balke Collender Co., as well as stained glass windows (recently re-leaded) and even original tables, chairs, and decorations. A large, sunlit barroom/dining room flows back into a spacious main dining area, along with a commercial kitchen and second powder room.

Upstairs is a three-bedroom/two-bath apartment with original cabinetry and turn-of-the-century doors and hardware reclaimed from a New York City club. The living room and adjoining dining room overlook Mamaroneck Ave, while the layout was originally designed to allow subdivision into two separate apartments. The basement also includes laundry facilities, absolute gobs of storage space, and (of course) a beer refrigerator with tap hookups for the bar above.

Though the family has declined multiple offers for the building over the past two decades, with a hot housing market and NYC chefs among those making the mass exodus from Manhattan, this little slice of Westchester County history is — for the first time ever — on the market.

Selling Points: Central air, antique flare, and the potential for your own long-running animated primetime comedy
