    35-33 36th St., 718-383-1001, Astoria, Queens
    So what if it rains—Studio Square has plenty of indoor space to keep you covered while downing mugs of beer (there are more than 20 domestic, imported and craft beers on draft), bratwurst, burgers, kielbasa and Bavarian pretzels. But on a proper summer night, the massive outdoor beer garden is an ideal universe, laid out on a cobbled courtyard of Belgian blocks. Long planked tables are interspersed with street lamps, white umbrellas and birch trees. Visitors and staff from Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image have discovered its urban charms. Studio Square doesn't take credit cards, but there's an ATM on the premises if you run out of cash. —JB
