Stationed on the outskirts of the haute-cocktail kingdom, this democratic Bushwick drinkery balances neighborhood-bar accessibility with a serious approach to booze. The area’s DIY ethos drives thoughtful cocktails like the rye-based Caulfield’s Dream, which comes topped with a fizzy float of cava and a tuft of spearmint. But vest-clad barkeeps are just as likely to suggest a $6 beer-and-shot combo as an artisanal quaff—try an ice-cold Sol paired with a bracing measure of spicy tequila, or peruse the well-curated list of organic wines and East Coast–leaning suds. While there's no food, the bar makes an ideal pre- or postdinner drinkery if you’re hitting locavore haunts Roberta’s and Northeast Kingdom.

Love the Narrows. The backyard is great during warmer weather, and the semi-private party room with the map wall is super cool. Also, best mozzarella sticks I've ever had, and the chicken fingers are the bomb as well. Great cocktails too!!

This "hole-in-the-wall" spot on Flushing Ave is open till 4am everyday, which makes it a great late-night spot for not only the late-working crew, but also the night owls (like me)! There's a nice, long bar at the entrance, as well as a cozy garden in the back. It took me a year to discover the "side room," which has both private, small tables and a communal table. Bartenders are always super friendly and inviting, and they definitely know their mixology! Also has a surprisingly killer sound system—and the playlist is always on point.
