Battery Harris

Vets of Village Pourhouse and the Taïm truck turn to Caribbean comfort food and Latin cocktails with this 144-seat bar. The Queens-born owners pay tribute to the Rockaways with the name—a nod to an abandoned beach bunker in Fort Tilden park—and shore-inspired decor, including colorful stained-wood interiors, a transparent geometric roof and a wraparound deck. Richard Gibbs (Caracas Arepa Bar) dispatches spiced plates like jerk chicken wings, jalapeño mac-and-cheese pie and roasted-corn-and-cabbage slaw tossed in a Scotch-bonnet vinaigrette. Rum-heavy tipples include the Double Impact (lemon, kumquat shrub, vanilla and orange-blossom water) and the Quest (lime, basil and Angostura bitters). Also on offer: nearly 20 domestic beers and four wines on tap.

Battery Harris is an ideal summer spot. Great Caribbean food, good music, outdoor space and frozen drinks. I actually avoid this place during the winter only because it makes me upset that it's not summer...

Great for day drinking and DJs play on the weekend, so it's perfect for whatever you're looking for.

I love this place! The coastal-inspired design is the perfect hangout in the summer with an open layout, wraparound deck, palm trees and geometric transparent roof. On one side of the bar patrons can sit outside while sipping boozy frozen slushies, while the other half can pony up inside under a massive skylight. Try items off their Caribbean-style menu and dance the night away on nights with DJs!
