Harlem’s first beer garden expected to open in May?

By HarlemCondoLife.com
In my mind, there is no question that Frederick Douglass Blvd is fast becoming a hot spot to hang whether for drinks or dining out or both. Heck, I have been saying all along and I will say it again that FDB is destined to be dubbed restaurant row especially now since this well known Harlem avenue called 8th Ave is getting a beer garden at 2099 Frederick Douglass Blvd.

On their website it states the beer garden will open early Spring. Hmm… Other reports say May. Below are pics taken of 2099 FDB today. Do you see any workers there? I think Bier International hired some ghosts to do construction work because I walk by this space practically every day and I have not seen any action-not a peep, not a sound coming from this space, which leads me to believe “we’re not getting any beer garden in May.” Maybe late June or July it will open, which will be nice to have. Don’t get me wrong. Drinking a brewski during those hot, humid summer days sounds delightful! I cannot wait! Harlemites will now have another option to throw back a few beers then head over to Slyvia’s for some good grub and then on to Harlem Lanes to bowl the night away!

Man-oh-man, I love Harlem and all that it offers! Have a great weekend!

  1. Judging by the renderings and the satellite view of the building in Google maps, there will be no true “garden” portion (except the planters out front).

    Unless they’ve somehow taken over the entire basement of the building (or at least a path through it) and established control of the adjoining lot to the rear — which of course seems rather unlikely.

    Still a welcome addition to the block, of course…

  2. I can’t believe it is going to be a beer garden as well. Maybe the owners are going to bring in tons of hedges and greenery to make a man made garden? I have a feeling it is going to be a man cave as well.

  3. I grew up in that building, I cant believe its going to be a beer garden. I remember when it was a bakery and I got my leg cut inside.
    Changes.Changes what next?

  4. HarlemGal, you only have a picture of the storefront, what about the garden? 😀
    whenever it opens, it will be a welcome addition and I can’t wait to try it.
