Zum Schneider ends its 20-year run tonight on Avenue C
As we first reported in December, Zum Schneider was leaving its home of 20 years on Avenue C and Seventh Street at the end of February.
And we've reached the end: Tonight (Feb. 25) marks the biergarten's finale as it concludes its six-night Karneval Final. The hours are 7 p.m. to 4 a.m. (In case you were going to drop by, the invite says that Karneval costumes are mandatory.)
The landlord, listed as 229 East 7th Street HFDC, reportedly decided not to renew the retail lease.
Zum Schneider opened on Avenue C in August 2000, and soon became a destination for World Cup and Euro Cup matches as well as events such as Karneval and Oktoberfest.
Owner Sylvester Schneider is searching for a new NYC home "with a landlord who appreciates our tenancy." He has already announced that Zum Schneider will host its annual Oktoberfest tent along the East River this fall.
