Swan Dive is a seasonal pop-up restaurant located on the Gowanus Canal. This summer we’ve invited two bad-ass BBQ teams to join forces to bring some of their all-time favorite dishes to Gowanus.
With over 10,000 sq-ft of open air outdoor space, the family-friendly, casual dining spot features picnic tables, lounge seating, a full bar, and smoked comfort food cooked to order daily.
Using recycled materials and reclaimed wood, Akiva Reich & Co designed Swan Dive with vibrant greenery, wild grasses, and birch trees to provide shade delivering a lush and welcoming space, the first waterfront food and beverage destination on the Canal.
