An 80,000 square foot entertainment paradise featuring three unique components has materialized just off the Morgan stop in East Williamsburg. Called Avant Gardner, it takes up a full city block, with a 6,000-person capacity, and it's filled with thousands of plants and palm trees.
The Druid Garden is a superbly designed and aesthetically patterned restaurant with a retractable glass roof opening up in the middle of the communal seating area, providing guests a close encounter with the outdoors.
