Located in the parking lot adjacent to Downtown Home and Garden at 218 S. Ashley St., Bill's Beer Garden serves beer, wine and mixed drinks, while food is available a few steps away at Mark's Carts.
Aside from being a visiting celebrity magnet - as evidenced by recent visits from "Glee"'s Darren Criss and celebrity chef Mario Batali - Bill's Beer Garden has developed into a favorite summer gathering place for both the townie and the student crowds.
Bill's Beer Garden summer hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 5-11 p.m. and Sundays from 4-9 p.m. This schedule will run through Oct. 31, when the bar will revert back to three days a week.
The outdoor bar also has announced a special Fourth of July schedule. The gates will open at 2 p.m. and close at 9 p.m. on Thursday.
