Situated in the heart of the nightlife hub in New York City, The Chester is an American restaurant, bar and private event space conveniently located in The Gansevoort Hotel Meatpacking District. The venue is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, as well as for late-night snacks.

The vibrant boutique-style nightclub and outside Biergarten make The Chester a popular place to visit. The venue is open seven days a week, starting at 6:00 AM.
One of the biggest attractions of The Chester is the outdoor space known as The Chester Biergarten. This one-of-a-kind fresco dining and special event destination combines the vibe of a traditional beer garden with the lively spirit of NYC’s Meatpacking District. The Biergarten wraps around the entire restaurant which provides guests with a sweeping view of the historic cobblestone lined streets on 13th and Hudson Streets and Ninth Avenue. The Biergarten is also surrounded by beautiful pergola blooms and wild foliage. This intimate space is undoubtedly one of Manhattan’s best outdoor entertainment spaces with picnic tables and a signature menu of shareable dishes and German beers.
Inside The Chester is Arthur, one of New York City’s most popular nightlife spots. This upscale lounge and special event space offers VIP services like bottle service, a private entrance, and custom-curated cocktails. Arthur is open weekly from Wednesday through Sunday. If you’re looking to gain a spot in this exclusive venue, you will need to make a reservation if visiting after 10 PM. On the weekends, the space is especially busy partially due to the live DJ set, which transforms The Chester into one of New York City’s most sought-after nightlife destinations.
