  • Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club 
    89 South St., 212-896-4600, Financial District, Manhattan
    Located on the (man-made) sandy shores of Lower Manhattan at the former home of Water Taxi Beach's South Street Seaport location, Beekman Beer Garden provides all the fun of a day at the beach—without forcing you to abide by pesky open-container laws or to take more than a few steps away from the Financial District. The menu includes bratwurst, hamburgers and hot dogs in addition to the beer list. As if all that—plus foosball, table tennis, cornhole and, we're not kidding, glowing lounge chairs—isn't enough, Beekman Beer Garden's draw is further enhanced this summer by a series of concerts. Free live music, frosty brews and a fantastic view of the Brooklyn Bridge? If you're setting out to create happy summer memories, you could do a lot worse. —Jonathan Zeller
