Night of Joy

Billyburg’s bar scene skews divey, but this bi-level drinks den offers laid-back boozing sans the stench of stale beer. The vibe is vaguely Victorian, complete with ottomans, throw pillows and antique-looking tchotchkes. Well-priced, simple cocktails—like a citrusy orange-blossom lemonade with rum—feature herbs and house-infused spirits, but they're too weak to pack a punch. While the ground-floor bar also stocks beers (including Sixpoint and Kronenbourg) and organic French wines, the real draw is upstairs—scale the steps in the back to find a roof deck with a frozen-margarita station.

You're promised a "night of joy" at this rooftop bar. Okay, cheesy jokes aside, I love everything about this watering hole. From the Victorian-inspired, witchy decor inside to the tasty—and budget-friendly—cocktails, the spot has everything you could ever want in a bar. Upstairs, there's a frozen margarita station, which is a huge bonus for tequila fans. And the DJs always play the good stuff—think Taylor Dayne's "Tell it To My Heart."
