A new Mexican restaurant is opening this weekend in a former beer garden in West Harlem.


Skinny's Cantina on the Hudson is taking over the space at 701 W 133rd Street and 12th Avenue, according to a new Instagram account promoting the opening this week.


The sneak-peek announcement says that doors will open at noon on Saturday, June 12. There will be a full menu plus frozen margaritas.



The large indoor/outdoor spot was most recently Bierstrasse, a beer garden that closed in 2019.


Renovations have been taking place all spring, including a new neon "Cantina" sign that recently went up out front.


The eatery looks to be the second location of Skinny's Cantina, a 10-year-old Mexican bar and restaurant in Long Island City whose team also runs neighboring Pan-Asian spot Shi.
