CocoWalk looks to bring back "what the Grove is all about" when Central Beer Garden opens its doors next month. Located on the fourth floor, the restaurant-bar hopes to draw locals and visitors by bringing in local bands and other musical acts whose performances will be pumped through a state-of-the-art sound system in a "nice but unpretentious ambiance."
Suds lovers can get ready for 60 international beers on tap and a menu of ten food items -- all under $10 -- that changes daily. The focus here is on quality versus quantity.
So if you're ready to bring back the days of Howl at the Moon and take your place onstage, contact Liza Santana. Auditions are underway for the first month's musical lineup.
