Named after Australia's topmost tip, this brick-walled Down Under pub from the Berry Park team features hand-painted murals from Bushwick street artists and—yes, here too—a rooftop bar for warm-weather boozing. Oz-bred beers including Foster's and Cooper's are available at the L-shaped bar, and the kitchen turns out pub grub like beef pies and grilled skewers (garlic shrimp, mint-marinated lamb).

Really I just love this place for the rooftop. Go on a weekday so you don't have to wait in line (although the roof has a lot of space). It has the perfect view of the Manhattan skyline and killer sunsets.


Northern Territory is one of my favorite bars in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area. Few roofs in that area have such a vast amount of space with great views of Manhattan. Bartenders can be a bit grumpy, but it's probably just because they never have a chance to rest with the crowds that gather there. Try the Territory's Tea - fresh muddled fruit and vodka, perfect for a summer day. You can't eat on the roof, but if you do feel like staying downstairs, the Grilled Skewers are great.

I've never had a meal here, only hung out on the rooftop bar a few times. Really beautiful view, places to sit and chill, good beer! Also if you go on a weekend night get ready for it to be packed with a young mostly super hipster and bro-y crowd. My only complaint is that you can't order food upstairs (on the roof) but definitely worth going to!
