Looking for a bit of island spirit in the city? Head to Dromedary Bar for the urban tiki experience. The Bushwick bar serves up riffs on classic tropical drinks, like the banana daiquiri–esque Marlin Chasing a Mermaid ($11), a combination of cognac, mezcal, banana, lemon and rose. Island flavors crop up all over the drink menu, like in the gin-based Coconut Soda ($11), which gets a frothy texture fro creamy coconut milk and sparkling LaCroix. If cocktails aren’t your thing, there’s also a selection of beers on tap ($5–$8). In the kitchen, Chef Galen Duncan churns out a menu of classic pub fare. Think burgers ($11), sloppy joe sliders ($4), chicken tenders ($6) and lots of fries ($3). The exposed brick barroom also hosts a variety of events, from trivia nights to weekly karaoke to comedy shows.

Definitely my favorite bar! Its great that they always have different events and activities so that you're never bored. Easy to make new friends here and it has a very welcoming atmosphere. The owner is super friendly and passionate about this place and always makes sure that everyone is enjoying their food and drinks. Would recommend this place to everyone!

Dromedary constantly has fun events amidst a comfortable and chic atmosphere. The tiki theme is not overbearing and the space is cozy without being too small. Some times there is live music, sometimes a burlesque show, sometimes a movie screening, other times karaoke. It has fabulous tiki cocktails (The Coconut Soda is a personal favorite) if you are feeling fancy and a variety of beers if you are feeling casual. The food menu its perfect for low-key dinner and for those "late night muchies". It also has vegetarian options. The owner usually stops by to greet the patrons that have become regulars. There is never a shortage of good vibes and interesting people at this bar.

The events are fun, the drinks are great, food is always good, the people are cool and the vibe is perfect.
