Post up at a 42-foot-long counter for espressos and craft beers at this rustic café-bar from the Alewife team. In a room lined with keg pallets and light fixtures fashioned from plumbing parts, sip one of 30 draft brews, orange wines or Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee. Chef Michael Haigh (the Vanderbilt) crafts a bar snack menu featuring house-made pickles, charcuterie and crostinis.
Fool’s Gold is a must-visit destination for those who enjoy the three essentials in life: good drink, good music and good conversation. Located in the heart of New York City’s busiest nightlife district, Fools Gold is a craft beer and American whiskey bar. It’s cloaked in a vintage-y, industrial decor with a custom-designed temperature-controlled tap system that rotates 30+ local and international craft beers (as well as select wines, whiskies and cocktails) on a daily basis and offers a selection of 80+ American whiskies. Its kitchen operates late into the night and serves a variety of delicious house-made bites and specials (check out the daily $1 oyster happy hour) as well as a kickin’, alcohol and comfort food-fueled Brunch on weekends. Weekly beer events with domestic breweries and whiskey tastings offer the public a unique chance to nerd out.
