Loreley is a beer garden, but not the pre-clubbing kind like the one you’ll find at The Standard. This place is more traditional, and it feels like the average beer spot you’d find on a side street in Germany. It’s a great place to hang with a group (either at a table inside or in the big backyard), and there’s also a little private room that you can reserve down below. In terms of food, they have your usually beer-garden-type stuff - things like pretzels, sausages, and schnitzel fingers, which we assume are traditional.
