Looking for ways to get in some solid New York drinking? It’s not called The City That Never Sleeps because the inhabitents have insomnia, people! This bustling metropolis abounds with fun and creative ways to toss a few back, so anyone on the hunt for unique drinking activities in New York won’t have to look very hard.
Whether you’re in the mood for rowdy fun or fine, hand-crafted sophistication, drinking in New York can reflect whatever vibe you desire. Old-school beer connoisseurs and newly inducted stein swingers alike will adore Spritzenhaus, Brooklyn’s biggest beer hall, which is full of long tables and massive fireplaces that keep the drinking party going right through winter. Not as large but arguably just as popular, Radegast Hall & Biergarten is a Williamsburg staple whose faded wooden façade and steepled roof recall the authentic beer halls of the homeland.
Sweet and Vicious over in Nolita boasts a plant-lined summer beer garden that offers a mellower vibe for intimate conversation, while Birreria in Chelsea promises a beautiful beer garden with equally stunning rooftop views from atop the fourteenth floor of Eataly’s Chelsea headquarters.
Inside or out, New York drinking activities are never dull and never lacking. Even the Meatpacking District gets in on the fun with the Standard Biergarten – located on the street level of the trendy Standard Hotel – which plays host to a sociable clientele looking for a relaxed place to grab a beer, chat with old friends, and hopefully meet new ones – just like you will when you spend the day or night drinking in NYC.
