Best Beer Garden in New York

I admit that by being Czech, I am slightly biased when proclaiming that The Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden has the best outdoor garden of any bar in New York…but really, it does.

First of all, it is huge (big asset in New York.) Secondly, it has real Czech beer (and authentic food, which I realize could be a drawback to some). Thirdly, they host all kinds of events in the summer, from movie screenings to jazz concerts.

To many Manhattanites, the Bohemian Hall is way too far, which is another reason it has remained authentic. After all, you do have to cross a bridge to get there. It is in Astoria, Queens but only a few subway stops from Midtown Manhattan. Not that this place is ready for an influx of “tourists” but when you get sick of those $14 cocktails in SoHo, this might be a good change of scenery…
