Central Park Miami (1300 S Miami Ave., Miami) is one of those downtown projects that seems like it's never going to happen, another vacant lot with a sign post ... we have to see it to believe it. So bravo to those behind the project, which includes old-guard South Beach nightlife wizard Bobby Brandt. This new space is a multi-use facility that has transformed what was once an empty building with a vacant lot next to it, into a functional indoor and outdoor venue.

A wide open 10,000-square-foot area termed "The Meadow" will provide plenty of event space for performances and festivals, and dining options include two new eateries -- a Bavarian-style "bier house," and Japanese restaurant Akashi, which currently has two locations in South Miami and Coconut Grove.

The Brickell Bier Garden plans to offer a wealth of German beers not often found in the United States, as well a choice list of micro-brews. A Bavarian infused menu by executive chef Abigail Fellows will make use of locally sourced product and has us happily expecting sausage rolls with cider kraut and freshly baked pretzels with beer laden mustard.

Larry and Barbara Chi opened the first Akashi in the early '90s, the soon-to-open Brickell locale with mark their third outpost. Akashi's menu offers the traditional range of meat and fish served teriyaki or katsu style, in addition to slightly strange sushi combo's like the "candy roll," which is stuffed with crab salad and topped with eel. There will be a wide range of sake imports as well.

As of now, Central Park Miami is slated to open later this fall, but there is an Oktoberfest preview event where you'll get a glimpse of Brickell Bier Garden's German fare.

Great another stupid fucking 'beer garden' with a ton of shitty beer and crappy food.

Miami needs to step it up beer wise, we are like ten years behind every fucking state. We have one local brewery - Titanic - and they don't bottle, do growlers or keg their shit. And their stuff is  alright. And the bars? Horrible.

nevermind, was talking about Grand Central Park.  Confusingly similar names for areas that close to each other!

It's very unclear, has the City of Miami approved this new park?

Wellllllll mister beer connoisseur, from what I have heard, this is the real deal.  10,000 sq/ft of outdoor bavarian biergarten in the heart of Brickell.  No Bud, no Miller Lite, no Heineken, no Corona...  Only AUTHENTIC beers from Germany.  And if your not "beer fucking guy" enough to handle that, they have 40 craft breers from the states.

I think they are hosting a preview party and Oktoberfest this weekend.  Check it out.  Maybe you can wear a "I'm Beer Fucking Guy" t-shirt and get a free tour ;)
