    fun to go with a group and actually the nicest bouncers I've ever witnessed; was a very mixed crowd of fratty boys post college but also jersey shore castmates? drinks are strong and reasonably priced

    Great early start place for a date, play a few games and then get the night started. It tends to get fairly rowdy later in the night. If you get a beer can, ask for a koozie!

    The bartender was incredibly nice and the drinks were great. I went in the early evening so I didn’t experience the nightlife aspect but it seemed like a great place to hang, play games and dance.

    Get a Brooklyn Tea (raspberry tea, lemon, sour & iced tea) or a John Daly (sweet tea vodka, lemon & soda). There’s a $10 shot & beer special. Great happy hour deals!

    Staff here are very friendly people. They do not hesitate to give buyback with pickle back shots! Wings are great. Try the bowl o' bacon.

    If you can stand being shoulder to shoulder in a sea of bros, get yourself a few spicy pickle backs to cope.

    With dozens of whiskeys and scotches available for your sipping pleasure, ending the night on top of the bar seems a more-than-likely outcome. Luckily, Whiskey Brooklyn’s team has done this before. Read more

    It's popping on Sunday's for the games. Make sure you take advantage of the $10 special for a shot and a beer.

    Score 80 points on the basketball game for a free beer (well $1 for the game). As a seasoned pop-a-shot veteran, I was able to get a round for our whole group for under $10.

    Good bar food, but the crowd can get a little fratty. Don't fret, the staff will take great care of you.

    Best pickle back shots I've ever had. Come on a week night and have one of the bartenders create special cocktails for you. Food is solid, too.

    Soulless place, set up to cash in on the popularity of the area.Avoid and spend your bucks and one if the dozens of other smaller, friendly and real places.

    This is a great place to dance. DJ plays a mix of throwbacks and current hits and gets the crowd all amped up

    Try a Pickle Back with Tom Lawless American whiskey. Amazing selection of whiskeys and lots of bar and arcade games.

    Awful. Wasn't allowed to enter because I was driving. Bouncer saw me parking in the front and said I can't come in. Mind you I don't even drink alcohol. The craziest thing I've ever heard on my life.

    Obviously, pickle backs are the way to go, but the happy hour is also pretty great: $1 off all the already affordable drinks from noon to 8! Check out my review under "More Info" below! Read more

    Features modern touches like seven huge LCDs, and a DJ booth siding an elevated stripper pole (though whether your pole's elevated depends on who's on it). Read more

    If you love whiskey (which you should if you're at fucking whiskey Brooklyn) ask Vinnie or Joel for a Presbyterian. You won't regret it.

    The wine selection is non existent, but go for the shuffleboard, spicy backs, and great music.

    Decent gastropub food and fun games. The selection of beers could be improved but then again it's called The Whiskey and not The Beer.
