Die Koelner Bierhalle Location: 84 St. Marks Place (near 4th ave) Vibe: Euroslopian. We know what you're thinking: You've been looking everywhere for an authentic German Beer Hall. Okay, so maybe not. But this joint, just four blocks from Barclays, is a cavernous room by almost any standard; its festive atmosphere comes with frothy, hoppy goodness. It's almost a bit too much to handle. Get ready to talk to strangers your neighbors on their wonderful park-style benches. This editor's pick? A liter of the Schlenkerla Helles. Cheers.
