Nobody cares about your cocktail as much as Hank & Lucey. Seasonal menus reveal an unbroken history of daring innovation. Who knew an expert-level cocktail experience could be so chill and welcoming?

Strawberry tequila is bomb as are all of their craft cocktails! Love the intimate lounge vibe.

Great drinks at good prices, in an atmosphere that's cool but not pretentious.

The best people, great location and some fun programming too! Oh, and the seasonal drink menu rules.

I had just moved to Brooklyn when I wandered into Lucey's Lounge on their opening night and I'll never fall in love with another bar the same way. There is just something about the place that seems to pull in all kinds of cool people and keep them coming back. It takes itself seriously but with no pretension, a cool and comfortable place to drink and talk. Can't imagine a better candidate for Brooklyn's Best Bar.

Love this bar! It's warm and friendly, I've gone there with a large group and the staff was very hospitable. If you just want to relax, it's the best spot. Lucey is awesome.

Great atmosphere, even better craft cocktails. Some of the tastiest concoctions I've ever imbibed were created here.

With Henry behind the bar (and the entire staff) you can always count on a warm homey feeling with a truly inspired cocktail program minus all the douchebaggery of the mixology culture. Its a home away from home. Freaking love Lucey's!!!

With a seasonal cocktail list, Lucey's is not only a staple in the neighborhood, it's also a great destination bar if you live out of the borough.

Great atmosphere, creative twists on the classics, great people- a great place to go to just chill and hang out. I normally don't like to go to bars by myself, but at Lucey's Lounge, someone always makes me feel at home.

This is the greatest bar in the world. I hesitate to give it any public support because I don't want it to be ruined.

High-end cocktails in a laid back setting. Friendly staff and patrons. A neighborhood staple.

Friendliest service, most innovative and delicious drinks, in a cozy and inspiring environment. Love this place!

All homemade ingredients, infusions. Amazing cocktails and welcoming bar for the broader crowd

Great cocktails and nice atmosphere! Relax in the backyard with a drink and some devil eggs.

Amazing drinks, fantastic atmosphere, and one delightfully charismatic Henry.

Fantastic cocktails both on the menu or whatever you could think of to order off-menu, these guys know what they're doing. Or you can just grab a nice beer if you're not feeling fancy and overall the vibe and crowd is Chill.

This is one of my favorite bars in all of NYC. Besides the owners Lucey and Henry being super nice, the atmosphere is stylish, warm, cozy, and welcoming, offing a speak easy homey kind of feel. I like how Lucey used reclaimed wood to design the space. He's quite the artist. To add to it's charm, the mixologists create delicious cocktails. I always look forward to enjoying a good time at Lucey's Lounge.

Lucey's is a great speakeasy type spot with spectacular craft cocktails, a spicy bourbon to die for, and a staff just cantankerous enough to love.

Fantastic cocktails with an atmospheric charm. It's part classy local haunt, part romantic hideaway.

Creative and talented bartender Henry makes this the best places side of the Gowanus!
