There are always new bars popping up and there are plenty we’ve added to our regular rotation. But one spot that’s been around longer than anyone on the planet is Scholz Garten - it’s one of the oldest bars and landmarks in the city dating back to the late 1800s. It’s a German beer bar that’s great for tailgates, day drinking, and maybe even dusting off the old lederhosen you bought at Wurstfest because they made your calves look good. This is the kind of place you order pitchers of whatever’s on draft - there are German, local, and other American options - to share with a group of friends, though you can also get a cocktail if that’s what you’re looking for.
