Summers in New York City mean many things to a New Yorker. Longer days of sunshine, sometimes shorter work weeks, and the inevitable hunt for the best outdoor space you can find to enjoy the first two. Even though the traditional end of summer is coming to a close, that doesn't mean you shouldn't still enjoy the beauty and rare occasions of being outdoors in NYC. Care to explore a new hidden outdoor by heading to downtown's newest addition, the Sky 55 Beer Garden at the Elevated Acre. This beer garden and grill is located in one of New York's hidden nooks and crannies. For those who know about Elevated Acre, they're keeping it a secret as its a beautiful garden oasis and outdoor space that transports you from the hustle and bustle of Wall Street to a more serene atmosphere with undiscovered view of the East River. The open acre of grass and well-manicured gardens are polar opposites to the modern structures that keep it tucked in one of New York's secret corners. It's downtown's little secret garden.
The Beer Garden and Grill operated by Masterpiece Caterers features local artisanal craft beers, beer hall bratwurst, sizzling burgers as well as lighter summer menus. Head to the Masterpiece Caterers website to learn more about their opening menu.
