Sip craft beers and cocktails at this Bed-Stuy watering hole, playing vintage LPs (Willie Nelson, Hall & Oates) and showcasing fiber art on airy white walls. A shelf of old records hangs near the ten-seat brass bar, where owner Jason Andrews mixes four house cocktails, including a planter’s punch made with Jamaican rum and a Pacifico michelada. Beer lovers can choose from brews both American (Sixpoint, Mission Blonde) and imported (Erdinger, Innis & Gunn). On warm nights, take your drink to the 45-seat garden, lined with macramé planters.

Great spot! Especially if you're a Texas? fan. I think its Texas jersey's that hang on the wall! Tasty drink and reasonable prices (Got a Moscow Mule for $8 on a Sunday!) I think they play the music a bit loud for such a small space, but late at night people do start dancing! The backyard is also great! Their custom cocktails are also super fancy and nice! And they have sparkling red win!! OOOOooo! Aaaaahh! Definitely check it out! 

Even though I live pretty close by, and it's a hop, skip and a jump from the Franklin C stop, Doris never really became a regular spot for me.

Sure, they have a great backyard, a decent happy hour ($5 draught beer, $2 off other stuff) that even runs for extra long on weekends, a solid drink selection, music from a wide selection of vinyl, chill bartenders, cool gold matchbooks, micheladas, and a hip southwest inspired interior that I can't be mad at. 

But, they also had  a fatal flaw (for me at least) - being cash only....

I recently decided to pop by after work just to shake things up a bit. I sat at the bar. Ready to order a drink. My fists of cash ready to go. There were a couple people who had just ordered so I waited patiently, only to be floored moments later after witnessing the person who just got their drinks paying WITH A CREDIT CARD. WAT!? I searched the bar - credit card machine, spotted. Along with a pile of cards from other like minded folk who were, no doubt, also relishing this moment.

So yeah, good job Doris. Welcome to the present.

I can't not mention the fact that they also have food from my favorite grilled cheese truck, Morris Truck. 

Will definitely be stopping by a bit more often.
