Beer gardens are great and all that. But now, Navy Yard seafood restaurant Whaley’s is bringing us the next great thing: the rosé garden.

The 30-seat waterfront bar, opening April 29 at noon, will be covered in tropical plants and pink striped umbrellas. Expect a dozen rosés by the bottle and three by the glass, plus a couple beers, highball cocktails, and frozen drinks. (We have our eye on the piña colada.)

Chef Daniel Perron won’t serve the full Whaley’s menu, but you will find spicy tuna ‘nduja, Maryland crab toast, poached shrimp, and of course, oysters.

The rosé garden will operate weekdays from 5 to 10 pm, and weekends from noon to 10 pm. Seating is first come, first served (no reservations), and keep in mind that the maximum party size is six people.

Here’s the full menu:
