    Everyone knows Harlem's role as a capital of black culture and history, but it's also become a formidable nightlife destination. One big reason for this, especially during the summertime, is Bier International. The menu abounds with tantalizing beverage options, including beers on tap and in bottles, plus a healthy selection of red and white wines. Pair your beverage with a bite from a wide-ranging menu, offering everything from catfish tacos to truffled Parmesan fries. And if you drop by early in the afternoon on a weekend, try the brunch. A Norwegian smoked salmon omelet could be the perfect fuel to kick off a full day in the neighborhood that also takes you to The Studio Museum in Harlem and the Apollo Theater. —JZ
