Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This gothic Bushwick cocktail bar takes its name (and indie spirit) from a onetime beatnik joint, Cafe Bizarre, in Greenwich Village. Victorian lamps and chandeliers lend the room a sepulchral dimness, while projectors screen experimental films on bare brick walls. A row of eight taps—ornamented with a grinning skull—pour brews both German (Köstritzer) and American (Left Hand Milk Stout). Drinkers in search of a stiffer slug can order classic cocktails (like an Old Overholt Rye Manhattan) or original tipples, including the Naked Susie (cognac, dry vermouth, pomegranate juice, chai tea and simple syrup) and the Abominable Snow Man (rum, curaçao, honey, whole egg). Head downstairs to the basement stage to catch burlesque performers, bands and art shows.
