Looking for the Oktoberfest experience without boarding an international flight? Head to Bierhaus NYC in Midtown East. With its long, communal tables, dirndl-clad waitresses and steins of Hofbrau lager, this bar gives off some serious Munich vibes. There’s almost always live music, often polka, and the rowdy crowd will even break into a tipsy German sing-along from time to time. The kitchen serves up a menu full of beer hall favorites, like currywurst with fries ($11) and flammkuchen, a flatbread topped with sour cream, red onions and bacon ($11). For a heartier meal, try the weinerschnitzel with potato salad and red cabbage ($19) or the slow-roasted pork shank ($23). The soft pretzels served with sweet or spicy mustard are even imported from Bavaria ($4.50 for a small, $9.50 for a large). There’s plenty of beer to wash it down with—available in half liters ($9), liters ($18) and even boots ($36).

This bierhaus is a great time! It has adult camp on Sundays with mimosa towers, and games like jenga and connect four to play. The food is always delicious, and the beer options are GREAT
From off the street it doesn't look like much, but up the stairs to the second floor opens up into a large room with high wooden beamed ceilings and large wooden communal style tables and benches. If you're looking for a taste of Germany in Midtown Manhattan look no further then the Bierhaus for their authentic style German food and German beers. Most of all I like Monday nights 6:30pm-11pm (no cover) for their live Jazz band and swing dancing. To top it off there's a tastefully done performance by a burlesque dancer who playfully prances around the room shaking her tail feather. Doesn't get more entertaining then that on a Monday night in Midtown East.
Head upstairs from 3rd Avenue and enter Bavaria, New York style. Long wooden tables for communal eating, and mostly drinking, happens each day. A large selection of beers to choose from in the half liter, full liter, or boot sized double liter. The waitresses wear their Bavarian garb and the food includes wursts, pretzels, and schnitzel. There is an outdoor patio as well, if you want to remind yourself that you are still in midtown Manhattan. Prost!
