The team behind the Lower East Side's Chloe 81 branches out to Brooklyn with this bar and dance club, outfitted with red leather booths, a gold-and-black bird mural and nightly live music. The booze menu deals in brown spirits, highlighting local slugs like Kings County Distillery, as well as beer-and-shot combos (PBR tall boy and Tullamore Dew) and bourbon-based cocktails including a Dirty Arnold Palmer. Tuck into comfort-food plates, like a bacon-cheddar burger, blackened catfish and fried chicken.
