Get away from Lollapalooza frenzy with fun food and drinks

Let's face it: not everyone can or wants to spend hundreds of dollars on festival tickets and hotel rooms.

Mott St is going against the grain, offering guests a perfect place to avoid the Lollapalooza craziness and crowds. The restaurant’s outdoor garden-esque sanctuary featuring corn hole, a curated playlist of old school beats from Beverage Director Nate Chung, shaved ice cocktails, and most importantly, Chef Kim himself preparing some of the best BBQ in town, gives non-concert goers somewhere pleasant to enjoy the weekend outdoors.

Even better? This laid-back neighborhood gem is offering a free bottle of their housemade sauce to the first 10 guests that arrive each day. Sauce options include: Ginger Scallion and Ssam (featured in Bon Appetit this month)—staples that Chef Kim regularly uses on proteins in the Mott St dining room. Cards with dish ideas will be included.

The beer garden is open every Saturday and Sunday from 1- 5 p.m. and is a fine place to escape the festival frenzy.
