Beer lovers, rejoice: The city's newest beer garden has officially opened for business. Greenwood Park, restaurateur Ted Mann's long-in-the-works 13,000 square foot eating and drinking establishment with a massive outdoor space, officially opened last night on Seventh Avenue between 19th and 20th Streets, in the shadow of Greenwood Cemetery.
When I last checked in at the space earlier this month, it was clear that the finishing touches were being applied. The outdoor section, complete with a fire pit and bocce court, encompasses the entire block, and the building behind it, a former car wash, boasts a long bar and a draft selection of 40 tap beers. Simple fare such as burgers and hot dogs are also on offer.
Not too much more information is forthcoming, but hey: beer and a big outdoor space to drink it, just in time for the summer to start really heating up. There's a daily Happy Hour from 12-7 as well, when all drafts are $3 and well drinks $4.
UPDATE: Gothamist has a great write-up, with a bunch of photos from last night.
