The Beekman Beer Garden is quickly climbing the list of one of my favorite summer time bars… a list in which I take very seriously. This place has pretty much everything I am looking for. Located at the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan, it is right on the water with a view of Brooklyn and the bridge. There are fire-pits, an arm-wrestling table, a full beer pong area, an indoor food stand, not to mention… the floor is made of sand. It is a perfect mix between a lounge and a bar and I definitely plan to visit at least a few more times before summer ends. We spent the day here on Saturday celebrating a friend’s birthday before bar-hopping around the city. We enjoyed some delicious seasonal beer, yummy street food, and a prefect New York atmosphere.
