An outstanding pub near East River Park

As NYC begins to reopen after the quarantine, everyone is thinking about branching out and finding new places to picnic, relax, and admire the city views. 

One great spot in Williamsburg is the East River Park, a seven-acre waterfront space that offers sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. What was once a 19th-century shipping dock has been transformed into a green space that is perfect for relaxing in the sun.

After a few hours of sunbathing, you might be ready for a little refreshment. Wander over to Kent Ale House, located at 51 Kent Avenue (at North 11th Street) and enjoy one of 27 craft beers on tap or our terrific line-up of frozen drinks, all sold in "to-go" containers. We will also have a takeout menu of upscale pub grub.

Manhattan cyclists that are tired of all the traffic should venture over the Williamsburg Bridge. From here you can enjoy designated bike lanes and quieter streets for an evening cycle. Kent Ale House is located 1.6 miles north of the Williamsburg Bridge and has a large bike rack located just across the street.

Why not cycle over from Manhattan, enjoy a few beers—and maybe even sandwiches, salads, or build your own burger—and then hop the L train at Bedford back? Kent Avenue is also home to its own bike path for safe cycling.
