    My favorite bar in Williamsburg. Gorgeous atmosphere, delicious cocktails, great service & tasty bar snacks. Go downstairs for a darker, sexier feel and DJs spinning house or hiphop on the weekends.

    Not too crowded. Great music and solid drinks. A solid alternative when The Whiskey is too packed.

    Stopped here for a couple of drinks on a Saturday afternoon and found it very good. Nice decor, great cocktails. A solid choice when you're wandering around Williamsburg.

    Get the Modern World drink. Great vodka and lavender infused cocktail. The service was very friendly, the deviled eggs and avocado toast delicious, and the environment open and airy.

    The rosemary croutons carried us in from the street like Toucan Sam. Incredible mocktail for the preg wife and LOVED the Salt & Ash cocktail.

    The monthly house and disco night Resonate in the basement is a cult success, and at a $5 cover fee, it won’t break the bank. Or order deviled eggs at the bar ($3 to $4) — there are 3 different kinds. Read more

    The basement bar is really great. On Fridays tends to be lightly populated - which makes for a fantastic chill experience with a good DJ and a tight mixologist quite competently co-piloting the night.

    If you want a real bartender who really knows what they're doing, this is the place to be. Mike, for example, sounds like he lives liquor, but not in the way that dude asleep in your hallway.

    Aside from it being a great space in general, the thing I admire the most about The Counting Room is that the bartenders actually give a sh*t about mixing drinks. Impressive cocktails, fairly priced.

    Go for the salt & ash cocktail. Perfectly balanced mix of grapefruit infused tequila, vermouth, and mezcal. Yum!

    This place has the best vocal-fry this side of the east river. Highly recommend if that's what you're into. 👌

    Devils on Horseback. Paninis and Jenga. A go-to spot, also great for waiting for Brooklyn Bowl or Gutter.

    Every once in a while they'll get world famous djs to play downstairs. If you're lucky enough to hear about one it's worth the $5 cover charge.

    Take the time to look up what a 'counting room' actually is and then impress your friends with your knowledge-dropping.

    definitely try the blinker (cocktail) very strong but good. I like the transmission from space but the ginger is a bit strong so do use the lime they give you,

    Wine, beer, or cocktail. They have you covered on whatever one you prefer.

    Maks is at the bar Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and every other Monday. Ask for a Salt and Ash or bartender's choice.

    Try the Salt and Ash. Tastes like salt and ash - or the inside of your grandfather's leather suitcase.

    The devilled eggs are unparalleled. The drinks are beyond compare. I can't believe how few people know about this place?

    Go right for the Counting Room Grilled Cheese. It's made with fresh garlic, thyme, fontina, and truffle oil. Wash it down with a nice Riesling. Read more

    Hey guys/employees, if we are accepting $9/drink as the price point, maybe let's try to be slightly less obnoxious about it when someone is ordering a drink.
