Whether you’re looking for somewhere to host your office holiday party or get your five closest friends together to celebrate the summer solstice, Standard Tap has you covered. They have a great rooftop deck, plenty of rotating beers, and a fireplace for once winter hits. Split a few shared plates, like the garlic clams, and make sure to get at least one chicken pot pie to share (or 10 if you bring the whole company).
