Located beneath Piet Oudolf's High Line garden in Chelsea, the Standard Beer Garden merges a classic Germanic sensibility with a New York industrial vibe. The vast space is open air in the summer and enclosed in glass in the winter, can seat 200 revelers, and includes two ping pong tables and roving pretzel vendors.
