A live band, a beer in your hand, and a perfect view of the Chicago skyline—it’s the time of year you’ve been dreaming of all winter! In just over two weeks, on Friday, May 23 the Landshark Beer Garden at Navy Pier opens for the summer 2014 season!
Located on the east end of Navy Pier, Landshark Beer Garden is the perfect example of everything we love about summer in Chicago—live entertainment, cold drinks, and a great view of our beloved city. An outdoor venue, the “Best Beer Garden” is open May through October, giving us five full months of lakefront fun!
The live music schedule for this summer is packed with more than 90 exceptional bands and performers all free on the outdoor stage. Patrons can enjoy a mix of local acts, national stars, and a variety of genres with a lineup that includes Hi Infidelity, Sugar High, Samadhi Vibe, Wait for Morning, Al Scorch’s Country Soul Ensemble, Ultimate Concept, and more! Don’t miss special events such as blues nights and Drop the Beat, when DJs will be spinning electronic dance music on select Fridays. The full schedule is available here.
Landshark Beer Garden doesn’t just have great music, it has great drinks too! Featuring micro-brews, imports, cocktails, and frozen creations, it’s the perfect place to unwind or a prime spot for going out with coworkers. Of course, relaxing on Lake Michigan wouldn’t be the same without a Chicago-style hot dog and an Italian beef! Pizza, hot wings, and hamburgers are also on the menu, but the must-try is the house bratwurst soaked in Landshark Lager.
The Landshark Beer Garden is open to all ages, so bring the whole family out to enjoy an easy, breezy day or a beautiful summer evening at the best beer garden on the lakefront. Stay for the spectacular fireworks which will be lighting up the night sky every Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. and Saturday at 10:15 p.m. starting Saturday,May 24. Check the schedule now to start planning your summer!
