The Chester, in addition to its contemporary American eatery, bar, and exclusive boutique lounge, boasts the outdoor space The Chester Biergarten. The one-of-a-kind al fresco dining and event destination fuses the spirit of a traditional beer garden with the riveting vibe of the popular Meatpacking District. The biergarten wraps around the restaurant, offering guests exhilarating views of the historic cobblestone streets lining 13th and Hudson Streets and Ninth Avenue. Surrounded by a blooming pergola of wild foliage and greenery, the Chester Biergarten is an intimate, yet lively space, making it one of Manhattan’s best outdoor dining and private event spots. With picnic-table seating and a signature ‘Bucket List’ menu of sharable dishes – our chef’s twists on the classics – and expertly selected German beers, it is ideal for group dining and social gatherings.
