From The Life Vicarious

Opening this weekend is Zeppelin Hall, a new 800 seat beer garden at 88 Liberty View Drive, an address unfamiliar to Mapquest. But if you can find it, somwhere in Liberty Harbor, you’ll be rewarded with 144 beers on tap and a menu aspiring to rival DBGB, with dishes like the Euro Burger, a Munster cheeseburger topped with Keilbasa.

Behind the project is John Argento, the former owner of Danceteria in Manhattan and the Hamptons, and until recently, the director of operations at Astoria’s Bohemian Hall Beer Garden. He’s now the latest New Yorker to find room to expand across the Hudson with former Nobu pastry chef Jessica Isaacs opening Cocoa Bakery & Bistro down the block this summer, and Devi chef Suvir Saran’s new American Masala just a few blocks east.

Zeppelin Hall’s soft opening was planned for this weekend but that test run may already be spoiled by the accidental early launch of their ad campaign as picked up by WiredJC, but all the kinks should be smoothed out by Monday.
