A pretty "standard" beer garden as far as beer goes, but it's a fun place that makes you feel like you're right in the thick of things. Because of its location in the Meatpacking District and near the High Line, there's always a crowd, which can be great if you feel like being social. It's also got a photo booth, which is a huge plus.

The Standard Biergarten is your typical German-style beer hall beneath the High Line and The Standard Hotel. Always a good crowd, but the space is large enough to never feel overly packed. The Standard has indoor and outdoor options so you're covered no matter what the weather. In between liters of traditional German beers, find some friends or challenge new ones to a few games of table tennis on the biergarten's ping pong tables. Traditional German fare is also offered with fresh grilled brats and wurst, but go with one of the giant hot pretzels, which are big enough to share.
