Bohemian Hall, New York City
in the early 1900s—a heyday of beer gardens filled with Eastern European and
German immigrants—this Astoria, Queens, establishment was often referred to as
simply “the beer garden” in recent decades because there were so few left.
Despite the growing presence of its brethren, this leafy Czech beer garden
reigns supreme, with a capacity of about 1,000 people and better-than-average
Czech staples like goulash and dumplings on the menu.
Suds: Not-easy-to-find-on-tap Czech beers include the crisp Krusovice and the hoppy
Czechvar (the original Czech Budweiser), as well as Pilsner Urquell and a
choice selection of Belgian and German beers. Beer from $6.
