The dark-stuff pros from Whiskey Town and Whiskey Brooklyn are behind this New York–inspired watering hole. The bar serves cocktails like the Downtown Tea (raspberry vodka, triple sec, iced tea and lemon) and six on-tap brews, including Guinness, Blue Moon and Brooklyn Lager. After throwing down the joint's signature Spicyback—a whiskey shot with a pepper-infused pickle-juice chaser—snack on a bowl of bacon, served with maple syrup and blue-cheese dressing. Wednesday nights feature the acoustic sounds of local musicians, a mellow reprieve from the weekend's DJ-spun Top 40 playlist.
