There’s no better place to gather a group in Brooklyn than a spacious and relaxed beer hall and garden. Located conveniently on the border of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, Spritzenhaus33 does just the trick with 6,000-sq.-ft. of industrial indoor and outdoor seating areas where large groups can comfortably gather and mingle with no reservation needed. Please note that if you’d like to post up at a communal table with a group for the night, then you’ll need to make a reservation. But it’s worth it for German beers, craft brews (including from some of Brooklyn’s best breweries), and a laidback menu of biergarten bar bites like sausages and brats with your choice of toppings, soft pretzels and dipping sauces, and crispy Belgian fries.

Some menu favorites include Korean BBQ pork ribs, thick-slab pastrami bacon, Vietnamese hot wings, jerk rib tips, and brisket tacos. And don’t worry—there are some leafy green dishes for the vegetarians in your group, like vegetable banh mi and smoked mushroom tacos.

Nothing beats a family-style Italian dinner when you’re gathering a group together in Brooklyn. Great for birthday celebrations and communal dining, dinner at Bamonte’s in Williamsburg is a classic affair. Originally opened in the 1900s, Bamonte’s has a retro-style setting reminiscent of 1950s decor and a menu stocked with old-fashioned dishes “just like Mom used to make.” It’s well known that you can get some of the best Italian food in all of New York City here, so don’t skip out on menu staples like long hot peppers, clams casino, housemade ravioli, and veal marsala. Pass around the plates and make sure everyone in your group leaves with a full and happy stomach!
