At Eataly—Mario Batali’s Italian foodie fantasy- land—the second-floor craft beer bar holds its own among the wine-dominated aisles. Sunlight bathes the sectioned-off corner space; the high-top tables hold Alpine-inspired bar snacks and pints, including 14 drafts and dozens of bottled varieties. Although you can’t go wrong with a local brew (Half Acre and Revolution are on tap), the beers made onsite will stun you.

Who’s there: Thirsty tourists and business lunchers
