Berg’n is a beer garden in Prospect Heights from the same people behind Smorgasburg. And just like Smorgasburg, there are multiple dining options. Grab food from one of four vendors then claim a big table with some friends. Or if you don’t have friends, sit at the bar and drink a craft beer. Or drink a martini. (They have a full bar). This is the best place in Prospect Heights for a big group hang, and there’s an outdoor patio space for the summertime.
