RPBB Summer 2020, Phase 2!

Riis Park Beach Bazaar is proceeding with scaled back food and beverage operations at Riis Park that follow New York State, New York City and National Park Service COVID policy. RPBB returned outdoor dining (and alcohol) to Bay 9 on Saturday June 27, with the Bathhouse shortly following on July 11. All operations are in accordance with City and State Phase 2 guidelines, including distanced tables and limited capacity to go along with sanitizing, mask and social distancing protocols. It’s been a long couple months but summer’s here, so enjoy the beach!! (But be responsible).

Because of COVID restrictions, alcohol is permitted for table service only within RPBB’s Bay 9 East Beer Garden and Bathhouse West Beer Garden, both featuring an array of tasty beverages including our always awesome lineup of frozens! Bay 9 East features an expanded beer garden that provides more space for distanced dining and drinking, while Bathhouse West offers an even larger expansion of it’s beer garden footprint, allowing for additional distanced seating and table service as well. Food is available for both table service and at dedicated take-out only locations at Bay 9 and the Bathhouse.

Although our food vendor lineup may be scaled back due to COVID restrictions, we are proud to welcome back two of our most popular operators to Bay 9 East: The Dropout, doing beach favs like burgers, dogs and chicken fingers and Rockaway Clam Bar doing their trademark lobster rolls and all things seafood. In addition, Cuisine by Claudette’s grab and go only window opened July 4 at Bay 9 West. The Bathhouse reopens for Phase 2 on Saturday July 11,  which  includes an expanded beer garden, Sparky’s Brooklyn Subs and the Wiseclock Cafe doing take-out only from the far eastern end of the building. Current NPS COVID guidelines do not allow additional food vendors at Bay 9 or the Bathhouse, while Bay 2 (2 Dudes), Bay 14 (Oaxaca) and Bay 6 (Pelenque) food vendors are also currently on hiatus.


Lifeguards and swimming returned to Riis on July 1. The NPS has returned parking lot capacity back to 100%. We support the NPS Leave No Trace policy and encourage all park and beach goers to carry out whatever they bring in. Please cooperate and follow our posted guidelines and distancing instructions as well as all City, State and NPS regulations.  

All concert and DJ events at RPBB remain cancelled until “gatherings” are reinstated.
