WILLIAMSBURG, NEW YORK –
Rooted on a rapidly gentrifying but still industrial stretch of Berry Street, Berry Park brings a spacious garden of beer to Brooklyn.
Big steins of Germany’s finest (and a few other Euro imports) are the primary beverage for the groups of casual friends that perpetually pack the sparse rooftop’s communal tables, downing mugs to the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.
Smaller patio seating makes the place popular for first dates, too, as would-be couples get to know each other over suds and sunsets, while haggard hipsters kick back after a long workweek with pretzels, burgers, and a seasonal special draft.
A smattering of wines and rotating fruity cocktails like the Huckleberry Lemonade also grace the drinks list, the latter of which is potent enough to knock a frat boy to the floor before he can chant, “USA!”
Chanting, if it does occur, will be in the open downstairs, where the second bar features lots of team flags and a large projection screen regularly used to broadcast European rugby and soccer matches.
Fridays bring more of a club vibe as DJs turn up the funk and classic hip-hop, while brunch on the weekends offers lots of deep fried French toast to coat the tummies for another round of wheat Weihenstephaners.
With brunch, DJs, sports, and stargazing, Berry Park draws a mix of people who like to mingle under one roof...top.
Laid-back hipsters, first dates, groups of casual friends, day drinkers, soccer and rugby fans, and packs of frat types checking out the weekend scene, 20s to 30s, with the early 20s set dominating the nighttime crowd.
DJ from 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays spins mostly funk, soul, and classic hip-hop. Bartenders’ playlist throughout the week.
Poker night on Tuesdays from 7pm. Trivia night on Thursdays from 8pm.
Large projection screen and multiple TVs on the ground floor favor European soccer and rugby matchups. Televised schedule on venue website and Facebook page.
Menu of Bavarian classics and contemporary American cuisine includes pretzels, burgers, kielbasa, and mac and cheese. Brunch on weekends includes deep-fried French toast, bacon scramble, and grits.
Brunch menu $11–$14, brunch package (entrée plus three drinks) $25, snacks $5, sharable plates $8–$11, salads $7, entrées $12–$15, sweets $7–$8. Beer $6–$9, mixed drinks $8+, wine $7–$8/glass or $28–$32/bottle.
Casual: jeans, shorts, t-shirts, soccer jerseys, sundresses, flats, sandals, sneakers.
Anytime a game of interest is scheduled, sunny weekends to brunch and booze on the rooftop, or Thursday through Saturday nights for a guaranteed bumping young party crowd upstairs and down.
The Levee (212 Berry Street) only offers a small outdoor area compared to Berry, but has cheap drinks, board games, and classic bar food at the ready.
