Venue says We are the largest heated outdoor beer garden in Manhattan's lower east side and have a great selection of imported beers, wines & spirits.

Sitting outside on the patio, quaffing giant steins of beer is possible year round at Loreley, a heated outdoor beer garden on the Lower East Side. If truly awful weather pushes you inside, grab a seat in the indoor beer hall. With rustic wood benches for seating and exposed brick walls, this bar and restaurant has a modern German aesthetic.

Thirsty patrons can sample beers from Weihenstephaner—the world’s oldest brewery—and the 11 other German-inspired breweries on tap. Kolsch, hefeweizen, lager and IPA: this beer garden has it all. Not into the suds? There’s also a wine list and full bar available. The bartenders will even mix up specialty cocktails, if you’re so inclined.

All that drinking got you feeling peckish? Order something from the kitchen. Loreley’s extensive menu features classic pub food and German favorites. Think everything from giant soft pretzels, currywurst and weiner schnitzel to buffalo wings, nachos and burgers. Keep an eye out for special events, like holiday brunches and weekend craft beer festivals.

I was here for a birthday party in the winter so I didn't get to experience the full beer garden. I loved their selection of darker brews and cocktails. It was a very chill atmosphere that was a bit loud but low enough for me to hold a conversation. Good service as well.


Came here on a Sunday afternoon to watch a Euro Cup game and i was Oh So pleasantly surprised! The place is huge, and it is PERFECT to watch games. TVs all over, including a huge projector in the patio area - no matter where you sit you will be able to watch and hear everything. It's very hard to find places in the city to watch soccer so this for me is amazing!

On to the food - really yummy German fare. We had the pretzel as an appetizer (a MIST - it's delicious) and I had the sausage platter as my entree, which came with mashed potatoes and beer sourkraut - SO GOOD. My sister got the pork schnitzel which also did not disappoint.

The beer selections is great - all German of course, with a few staples and a few rotating seasonal specials. For dessert we had the apple struddle which was sold on us HARD - i would skip it, nothing special.

Everything else though - super solid. Will be back for games for sure!


Communal tables are one of the greatest features a bar can have. They practically force you to talk to strangers and (GASP) potentially make new friends. Pair that with oversized German beers and servers who are seemingly fresh off the boat from Munich and you've got yourself a really cool spot. Lorely is definitely one of the more authentic "beirgarten" experiences you will find in this city, perfect for taking a big group and sitting out on the patio to enjoy each other's company. I like this place so much that I'm even willing to look past the fact that their TV's are perpetually fixated on European soccer matches.
