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).
