After a great lunch at Stone Street Tavern, my cousin and I went looking for a new bar and found this great happy hour spot. Connected to The Standard Hotel, right under The High Line, is a cute and ivy covered outdoor bar.
When you arrive at the Biergarten, you purchase tickets from an outside booth. One ticket is good for a small beer and two tickets get you a larger sized, das boot styled beer chalice. Two tickets also get you a larger-than-your-face pretzel, which I truly regret not ordering. We chose to go with the smaller beers to try and pace ourselves.
.We walked up to the bar and asked for the best beer they had. My cousin got their homebrew pale ale, and I got the lighter, fruitier styled beer. We drank our beers while watching men in suits get extremely into their ping pong games. It was quite a scene to watch with the giant mugs of beer everyone around them was holding.
We finished our beers and walked around the High Line to let the beer settle. It was a great ending to a day with my cousin who I don’t get to see nearly enough.
