It's technically in Greenwood Heights, but still certainly warrants a discussion here. A giant beer garden has been in the works for months all the way down on Seventh Avenue and 19th Street, and while there's still plenty of construction left, it's poised to become a prime drinking destination.
It's the brainchild of Bay Ridge native Ted Mann, a restaurateur who currently has a hand in 9 bars, restaurants, and venues in the borough (including Cubana Social, Apt 138, Public Assembly, and Bar 4). He also happens to be Ted Nugent's son, which struck me as worth mentioning.
A couple days ago Brownstoner got a sneak peek of the beer garden, which is shaping up to open within a few months. It stretches the entire length of the block, and will boast dozens of beer on tap, a fire pit, and ample outdoor seating.
