3. Hofbräu Bierhaus in Midtown

In one of the more incredible conversions, this former Wendy’s is now Hofbräu Bierhaus, an indoor beer hall reminiscent of the places in Europe replete with wood paneled walls, communal wooden tables and long benches. There’s an outdoor balcony, topped with a German-style dormer roof. There’s a Stein Club and for Oktoberfest, the Hofbräu Oktoberfest beer is on tap and live music is on the program.
