Greenwood Park, the long-awaited, 13,000-square-foot beer garden, bar and restaurant from Brooklyn restauranteur Ted Mann, opened for business last night. We sent Casey Acierno and Kate Hooker, our crack team of South Slope imbibers to the scene to investigate. They reported that the space is huge–no surprise there, and that the outside bar is constructed from a shipping container, a very of the moment building material for Brooklyn. There are three bocce lanes outside, and the whole thing has a really cool reclaimed aesthetic.
Listen up day drinkers: there are $3 drafts for happy hour from noon to 7pm. They’re showing the Euros final on Sunday and have specials planned for the Fourth of July.
Granted, last night was the first night it was open, and Greenwood Park will likely grow more crowded over time, but our writers, both South Slope dwellers, gave it rave reviews. Casey Acierno, Tip Sheet editor, really summed it up in an email, “Really low-key, spacious, basically the perfect addition to the nabe. Between this, Sea Witch, and Quarter Bar, South Slope is KILLING it for outdoor drinking–rad rad rad place to be for the summer!”
