First there were brewpubs, then urban wineries, and soon New York will have its first cocktail bar--distillery hybrid: the Shanty, expected to open the week after Thanksgiving. The 40-seat saloon looks onto the manufacturing floor of the newly operational New York Distilling Company through a large bay window. If the setup sounds vaguely familiar, it may be no surprise that Brooklyn Brewery cofounder Tom Potter is behind the project, along with cocktail expert Allen Katz.

The pair plans to bring some hard-to-find spirits to the American market, like the once defunct Rock and Rye, a young rye whiskey flavored with rock candy. First out of the gate will be two gins: Perry's Tot "Navy-strength" gin, named after the first commandant of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and Dorothy Parker American Gin, an 88-proof variety flavored with juniper, citrus, elderberries and hibiscus.

You can sip them and works-in-progress liquors, like rye whiskey, at the white-oak-and-iron bar, as well as ciders, local beers and cocktails. Head bartender Nate Dumas (Prime Meats, Pegu Club) will shake up classic and creative concoctions, like the Rye Cove (rye whiskey, Madeira, triple sec, lemon, Amargo Chuncho bitters) and the Opera Cocktail (Perry's Tot, Dubonnet Rouge, maraschino liqueur, orange bitters). The laid-back joint is decorated with a 19th-century moonshining still and hanging wood lanterns carved to resemble old whiskey bottles. 79 Richardson St between Leonard and Lorimer Sts, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-878-3579)
