The Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club will open on the South Street Seaport, where Water Taxi Beach once stood, on May 27. When the Beach Club was last in the news, Slate owner Telly Hatzigeorgiou had shelved plans to take over the space after the community board demanded that he close early. But it looks like things have been worked out — the Beach Club will operate from 11:30 a.m. till 3 a.m. daily, with chef Jason Mayer (also from Slate, and previously from Buddakan and Michael Symon’s Parea) turning out food the whole time. Expect two bars made from driftwood; chaises, hammocks, and glowing (!) lounge chairs; a stage for live music; and table games like Foosball, Ping-Pong and billiards (what, no shuffleboard?). Here’s your first look at the menu.
