Germany has made some incredible contributions to the culinary universe, but perhaps none more favorable than the elongated wooden tabletops, and general madness of a German beer hall. So if you are as devastated as we are that Oktoberfest has come to an end, don’t worry! We’ve located some of the city’s top beer halls and beer gardens that can keep you in the lederhosen spirit all year long!
Here are a few suggestions where you and the team can bang massive mugs on long wooden tables all day every day. We’re not going to TELL you to river dance on the tables, but…it happens.
38 W 26th St
New York, NY 10010
In the shadows of the historic Flatiron building lurks the speakeasy nostalgia of Flatiron Hall. A great spot for a quick beer or two with friends, accompanied with Rueben spring rolls, spicy pastrami sandwiches and homemade potato chips.
New York, NY 10002
Here’s a slightly more upscale version of what most think of in an NYC beer hall. Trying to impress someone? Think you’re fancy? Go to Paulaner. They also offer cooking classes! See if you’ve got the touch.
222 W Houston St
New York, NY 10014
We wont call this the beer hall mecca, but it’s pretty dang close. Houston Hall means 8,000 square feet, and usually PACKED with energy the weekends. Go for the beer. Go for the TVs. Go for the music.
Just go. You’ll be glad you did.
The Bronx Beer Hall
2344 Arthur Ave
Bronx, NY 10458
Here’s an under the radar option that will have you feeling like the squad-captain you are. The Bronx Beer Hall. Who said the best beer halls are in south Manhattan? Bollocks. Panini’s, Pizza, and the New York Yankees is what you’ll find here.
Make a day out of it.
