AC Beer Garden On Tap

By Elinor Comlay of Route 40

A plan to open a beer garden on Atlantic City’s boardwalk is one step closer to launch after a public hearing last month. The planning officer for the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which oversees the boardwalk and tourism district, last week recommended the beer garden project to CRDA’s board for approval. Some of the existing construction on the site was being demolished last week, presumably to make way for the beer garden.

The company behind the project, Dectrinity, already runs the Bungalow beach bar and the Boardwalk bar next door to the proposed beer garden site at the corner with California Av­enue. According to the plans, the beer garden will have an outdoor kitchen area, two bars, three fire pits and a game area.

The project owners will need to get city permission to use some space along the Boardwalk and through the licensing process.
