'If you lived in Brooklyn, or lived in Park Slope, you just knew Grand Prospect Hall,” says Spengler. But this summer, the golden ticket arrived in the form of a beer garden — the first time Grand Prospect Hall has been open to the public in ages. The Brooklyn Bavarian Biergarten takes up Grand Prospect Hall’s entire 21,000-square-foot outdoor area, a lush oasis of fountains, trees, a waterfall, a World War II memorial and picnic tables."

"Three decades later, the husband-and-wife duo is making a bid to fulfill its promise, revitalizing not the hall but its adjacent courtyard as a 500-reveler, booze-soaked shrine to both its Bavarian past and Brooklyn present, celebrating Kings County’s quirky, stay-weird nature as much as its homegrown beer culture."

It isn’t quite private, but it certainly feels like it. Within the sprawling garden, customers can find a quiet nook under some trees or a seat near the waterfall. (Seriously, there’s a waterfall.) Even when there are lots of people around, it doesn’t feel crowded...It also offers excellent German food, including delicious sausages that come from a sausage maker in Queens. They’re good enough for a special trip...

...Now we've got a look inside the new space, with its many water elements and, yes, that stuffed horse. The first thing to note is the greenery involved, with trees, many a trellis and potted ferns and flowers combining to make a lush oasis. Lots of notable backyard bars boast a shrub or two, but this is some next level flora. Then there's the charming waterfall, with water splashing down over a rustic stone wall and archway....

The Halkias, owners of Grand Prospect Hall (and erstwhile candidates for our new monarchy) were inspired by their Bavarian roots to renew the empty courtyard next to their spot and turn it into a regular feierhaus. Not only is this a great idea — it’s also a power play befitting the days leading up to Brokelyn’s coronation of our new King and Queen.
