The Beach is Back: Beekman Beer Garden Re-Opens

Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club is officially re-opening its proverbial doors tomorrow, April 14th.

This outdoor summer hub will be launching a new menu with additional beers on tap, as well as a slew of fun events.

Beekman has two 25 and 60 foot bars, fire pits, flat screen TVs, foosball, and ping pong tables to ensure your never-ending amusement. Beekman Beach will now have its own private entrance and bar for exclusive events and on May 27th (Memorial Day weekend), the venue will launch its first Bikini Brunch Beach Party, which will take place every Sunday for the summer. Get decked out in your best swimwear and enjoy music from NYC's top DJs.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The Beekman Beer Garden Opens at Pier 17

The Beekman Beer Garden has officially opened at South Street Seaport. Taking the place of the old Water Taxi Beach, The Beer Garden features 18,000 square feet of space (including a 6,000 square foot beach) adorned with cabanas, lounge chairs, glowing couches and hammocks. And to every beer lover's delight, they have foosball, pool and ping pong tables! (Beer pong, anyone?) The menu features an extensive beer list (obviously) of pretty much every German and American beer you can imagine. The kitchen is headed by Chef Jason Mayer, who brings traditional beer garden charm with menu items such as Spicy Cheddar Bratwurst on a pretzel bun, fish and chips, and a juicy 8 oz. LaFrieda burger.
