One of the most noticeable recent trends in nightlife has been the transition from small and chic (wine bars, speakeasies, and cocktail joints) to raucous and oversize—specifically, massive German-style biergartens and beer halls, which have opened in nearly every large U.S.
Frankford Hall - Beer, Brats, Pretzels and Burgers. "If it is daytime (up until around 7 or so), Frankford Hall is amazing. They have an outdoor courtyard surrounded by 4 walls with firepits (pretty well protected) and heat lamps, we were there recently during the day and there were many people with little ones. Very casual." http://www.frankfordhall.com/
