Who doesn’t like beer? Who doesn’t like solar power? If you raised your hand to either one of these questions then please stop reading and leave New York City ASAP. Now that I’ve got your attention, I’d like to tell you about Brooklyn’s first solar powered Rooftop Beer Garden!
Located smack in the heart of Williamsburg, you don’t even have to be a tweed-wearing hipster to go. If you’re a regular Socially Superlative reader, you might have read my review last year of Clinton Hall Williamsburg. They didn’t have a rooftop beer garden back then, so my friends and I went to check out their new Solar Powered Rooftop for their opening earlier in May, and we weren’t disappointed.
The solar powered 2,000 square foot rooftop beer garden has its own entrance on Metropolitan Avenue and has communal seating for up to 125 guests, and an additional private party space for up to 200 people is available for rental. They have over 100 solar panels supplying power and recycling energy across the rooftop, hotel and courtyard beer garden.
You are encouraged to take the lean and green way up to the rooftop to help conserve even more energy. The stairway is an art lover’s stomping ground, with multiple groups of local artists displaying one-of-a-kind installations from the ground level up to the rooftop.
With a delicious menu of shareable light bites from Executive Chef Darryl Harmon and Supercraft beers on tap, as well as Clinton Hall’s very own Gigawatt IPA made at the Bronx Brewery, you’ll have no shortage of choices of good food and drink to choose from to get your party started.
This place is gonna become wild-popular soon. Hurry and get over there before the rest of the crowd.
