    I often complain that too many trendy bars serve undersized weak "fancy" drinks that are more like a shot on ice. But this place makes excellent, strong and delicious drinks.

    All the cocktails are really nice and the frozen drinks are especially good like the Painkiller. Also you can get Chicago dogs that are 👌🏻

    This is my corner bar and simultaneously one of my favorites anywhere. The bar staff are very serious about what they serve and how without being a PITA about it. Also oysters and snack mix.

    A strong contender for the Best Bar to Meet a Few Friends at Before Dark. Cocktails are worth the price of admission any time, but frozen drinks in the summer make this a destination

    Tasty cocktails at this fun spot to hang with a group of friends late at night (say, after a game at the Barclays Center). Challenge someone to a game of pool!

    Standout cocktails include the Mr. Howell ($9), with single-malt scotch, aged rum, lime juice, and maple syrup. Try it with a grilled cheese sandwich, which stacks up with the best in Brooklyn. Read more

    Classy cocktail bar. A bit over-crowded for after midnight on a friday night. Kind of too cool for school. Get the 'Good Manners' cocktail with prosecco, bourbon, mint, cucumber & cane syrup.

    The Mr. Howell is one of the most unique and flavorful cocktails I've ever had. Do yourself a favor and spend $2 more to have it made with a finely aged rum -- a transcendent upgrade.

    Here in the wintertime? You want hot apple cider, spiked with bourbon. Maybe have a few and then go for a walk in Prospect Park! See, winter in NYC isn’t that bad after all.

    Had the Bermuda Triangle during HH for $8. Enjoyed it. Sweet and made with love. Only dislike was the drink had lots of ice. Definitely returning if I'm in the area.

    Small and inviting. Cocktails are amazing. 1940s vibe is a nice twist. Good old school hip hop playlist.

    Get the grilled cheese sandwich with their house made beer cheese and delicious pickles. Or get the cheese and pickles on their own.

    The Root Cellar on the winter menu is delicious: like a boozy, warm root beer (way better than it sounds).

    Great bar staff. Excellent cocktails. The grilled cheese is ridiculously good. Please don't go here and please don't tell your friends.

    Unconventional cocktail list and fun atmosphere, with grown ups acting slightly less grown up.
