Open 91 years, this is the granddaddy of NY beer gardens. Leafy "Bohemka," as Czech expats call it, packs up to 1,000 beer swillers on warm days. Don't miss the dumplings and Staropramen lager.

There are many imitators, but this is the one true, traditional beer garden in New York. Its beer selection isn't huge, and mainly skews to imports, naturally, but the atmosphere is one of a kind.

Seating is plentiful, the drink list features a fair share of low-alcohol brews, and traditional Czech food is available to soak up some of that booze. What is there not to love about this bierhaus?
