4. Biergarten at the Standard Hotel

The Standard Hotel Biergarten has a unique location–right under the High Line itself, yet it remains a cozy atmosphere thanks to brick walls on all sides and an indoor-outdoor ambience. It has a distinctly modern feel too, with communal picnic tables and a dedicated space for ping-pong. Every Saturday during Oktoberfest it gets a bit more old school, with Standard Brauhaus Oktoberfest, dirndl’s, lederhosen, and a 35 piece German Polka Band.
