THE GIST

Jessie and Ryan checked out the brand-new Parklife in Gowanus. While there were some hiccups with the taqueria, they loved the beer selection, the outdoor space and the chill crowd. Listen below to hear more.

Jessie's Take

Service Rating: 5

They have a taco bar, and we think they ran out of food? They didn’t really explain, which was a little weird. They just told us that food would be a two hour wait. It was already 9:00 and we were starving, so we seamless-ed food! The bar wasn’t very happy about it, but they couldn’t really argue with us.

 

Fun Factor: 9

It’s simply a huge outdoor bar, which is ideal for summer. Very pretty in the early evening, but once night hits, you can’t really see anything! But they have a great drink selection, and great “vibes”. Also, really easy to enjoy with a big group of people!

Ryan's Take

Food Rating: 1

Looked good…but the wait was 90+ min for food so we seamlessed.

 

Service Rating: 7

I’m giving it a relatively high score because you were essentially left alone. You get drinks at a bar and bring them to your table. Makes it easier to not have a big check, ordering at different times, etc!

 

Fun Factor: 9

It was a really fun place. Cool atmosphere…open area with picnic tables and great beer.
