If you think about it, Treadwell Park is sort of like a daycare center for adults. It’s an indoor beer garden with ping pong, pinball, and TVs for watching sports. There are plenty of large picnic-style tables, so if you need a place to meet your summer camp friends on the UES, it’s great for that. It’s also a little nicer and cleaner than your average beer garden, and they serve a ton of German/American bar food. You should, however, expect a crowd if you’re coming at a peak time like brunch.
