Sip craft beers and cocktails at this Bed-Stuy watering hole, playing vintage LPs (Willie Nelson, Hall & Oates) and showcasing fiber art on airy white walls. A shelf of old records hangs near the ten-seat brass bar, where owner Jason Andrews mixes four house cocktails, including a planter’s punch made with Jamaican rum and a Pacifico michelada. Beer lovers can choose from brews both American (Sixpoint, Mission Blonde) and imported (Erdinger, Innis & Gunn). On warm nights, take your drink to the 45-seat garden, lined with macramé planters.

Even though I live pretty close by, and it's a hop, skip and a jump from the Franklin C stop, Doris never really became a regular spot for me.

Sure, they have a great backyard, a decent happy hour ($5 draught beer, $2 off other stuff) that even runs for extra long on weekends, a solid drink selection, music from a wide selection of vinyl, chill bartenders, cool gold matchbooks, micheladas, and a hip southwest inspired interior that I can't be mad at. 

But, they also had  a fatal flaw (for me at least) - being cash only....

I recently decided to pop by after work just to shake things up a bit. I sat at the bar. Ready to order a drink. My fists of cash ready to go. There were a couple people who had just ordered so I waited patiently, only to be floored moments later after witnessing the person who just got their drinks paying WITH A CREDIT CARD. WAT!? I searched the bar - credit card machine, spotted. Along with a pile of cards from other like minded folk who were, no doubt, also relishing this moment.

So yeah, good job Doris. Welcome to the present.

I can't not mention the fact that they also have food from my favorite grilled cheese truck, Morris Truck. 

Will definitely be stopping by a bit more often.
