For the Love of Soccer: CHARCOAL beer garden + tapas

June 19, 2018admin



A little over a year ago, The Yard Hospitality partner and local culinary OG, Ken Lyon decided to give The Wynwood Yard a higher-scale, outdoor sit-down dining concept: CHARCOAL. Patrons could experience the same open-air, community magic they loved but on a lower-key. Wanting to create a space that pays homage to the outdoor nature of its own concept, CHARCOAL will now be reinventing itself into a beer garden for the summer! Don’t worry though, it’s retaining all the gorgeous greenery and friendly ambiance we have come to love.

Same Vibes You Love

CHARCOAL beer garden + tapas couldn’t come at a better time. In a city where soccer bars, particularly during the World Cup, aren’t as easy to find as you’d think, they’re saving the day. It’ll be their take on a traditional German beer garden and atmosphere: the casual space, small plates, nothing too high brow. As always, complimenting The Wynwood Yard’s already beloved feel. The breathtaking shipping containers will remain, with things like patio games thrown in for a true laid-back hang. More plants and the addition of long beer garden tables and high tops will make celebrating wins a lot more doable.

Menu-wise, you’ll fawn over their mix of Spanish-style tapas with their own twist. There’s all the classics like grilled octopus and CHARCOAL’s popular burger. Gazpacho, deviled eggs, and bacalao will also top the list. All of which are affordable and easy to eat while watching your favorite matches. You can even enjoy their many delicious dips with a trademark pretzel, because no beer garden should be without one. You’ll see familiar names like M.I.A Beer Company, Copperpoint, and Bell’s Brewery on tap, sprinkled in with the international big guns. It’s going to be a vibe.

Time to Celebrate.

CHARCOAL beer garden + tapas has popped up and is already well on its way to being a World Cup staple this summer. They’ll be open Monday & Tuesday 11am – 6pm, and Wednesday – Sunday 11am – 11pm. They’re boasting themed drink specials, happy hour steals, and all the perks you want for you go-to bar. It might be open, but come on over and celebrate the grand opening with us on Saturday, July 6th! Featuring live jams, food and drink samples, and a badass party going on around the whole Yard compound to mark the occasion. RSVP and have fun with us!
