Drury Beer Garden is hidden behind the Greek restaurant Opa in Midtown Village. It’s a courtyard with a bunch of mismatched tables and an old wooden bar that we’re pretty sure someone on the staff handmade back in 1995, and you’ll find good drinks, some great spanakopita to chase them with, and occasionally even live music.
