This space is great in a lot of ways. Fun theme with the beer steins and big pretzels offered. It has a more casual feel than the rest of the Standard and is a welcome addition to Meatpacking. I wish it had tvs for sports but that's my only complaint. I'll continue to frequent this place for sure.

The Standard Biergarten is a welcome little enclave in the club-torn Meatpacking District. Although it can get very crowded, it maintains a very chilled, though still lively vibe - a unique dynamic to find. While it is a "standard" biergarten, with tickets for beer, sausages and German fare (delicious) and lederhosen t-shirts for the staff, their cocktails are also pretty amazing. Weekend daytime and nights are pretty packed and can draw long lines, especially in the summer. The crowd is always a lot of fun, with a lot of tourists thrown into the mix. The one category this bar doesn't tick off on standard is their early (for NYC standards) last call. However, if you want to make it a late night afterwards, there are plenty of options in the area that stay open far later.

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.
