Stamford's popular hang-out, The Beer Garden @ Harbor Point, is closing. But don't fret, it's just a temporary closure until relocation.
On Friday, December 20, the location on Stamford's Harbor Point Road will be closing—after having just opened in May—and the garden is inviting everyone to come on down for their goodbye
party that same night.
John Heil of Imian Partners, the group that partnered with
Building & Land Technology (BLT) said the location was never meant
to be permanent and the mobile concept of The Beer Garden is a highlight

Beer Garden @ Harbor Point was originally designed as a 'pop-up'
concept, a moveable feast of the senses if you will, and always had a
finite shelf life at its current location," said Heil. "We had the idea
on our drawing board for a while and when BLT asked us to activate the

a deftly designed space with craft beer, live entertainment and the
food trucks is something that we are excited to do throughout Fairfield
County over the next few years," Heil said. "We'd really like to thank
the community, the press and and all of our wonderful patrons for
supporting our endeavor, we had so much fun in the South End this year."
Heil said the next location would be unveiled soon
and the company is in discussions with BLT to develop a "grand American
Seafood Brasserie & Oyster Bar at a location still to be determined.
