A stylish crowd gathers at the stainless-steel bar of this classy joint on still-gentrifying Flatbush Avenue. The Trinidadian owners pride themselves on unusual drinks: Their mojito ($10) gets a twist of mango and tamarind, and rum shots ($5 each) are infused with ginger, rosemary or ginseng for the botanicals’ reputed healing properties. On Tuesdays, ladies can “be healed” for half price all night as they dance to calypso, hip-hop and reggae.
