Just six months to go until one of the best NYC pub crawl days of the year!
Located at 211 Knickerbocker Avenue in Brooklyn’s Bushwick, Three Diamond Door is a semi-craft beer bar. One notable retro quality about this place includes some old neon beer signs. Outdoor area was not open yet during our visit. The space has a long bar with window seating and some booths opposite the bar and strikes as a spot that is both good for winter and summer.
Located in the Chelsea Market Building (at 15th St. & 9th Ave) in Manhattan’s Chelsea, Corkbuzz opens its second location. Much smaller than their Union Square location, Corkbuzz Chelsea Market has a small bar area in its front half; and a seating area in back that consists mainly of three stairs of stadium-style seating. The space felt a bit cramped during our visit. Open from 1pm until 1am, Corkbuzz Chelsea Market offers 24 wines by glass and nearly 50 out of the bottle; a small selection of beer and wine available as well. Food menu offers small bites. The spot is worth a visit next time you’re at Chelsea Market.
Located at 234 Starr Street in Brooklyn’s Bushwick, The Sampler is a beer bar/beer store just steps away from the Jefferson St. L train stop. Offering 20 taps from which to sample, The Sampler sells growlers of beer and has some chillers for single beers/six packs. The spot offers panini, meat/cheese plates for snacks. A good stop for the Bushwick craft-beer bar crawl.
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Pacific Standard, located at 82 Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn.
Located atop the Hotel Hugo at 525 Greenwich Street in Manhattan’s west Soho, Bar Hugo offers panoramic views, including south to the Financial District, west to the Hudson River and north to Midtown. About a dozen low-lying tables and seating scattered around the indoor bar area. There’s also a standing-room only terrace looking out across the Hudson River and into Jersey City, NJ. In good weather, the open windows offer a nice cross breeze. Eight house cocktails are available (at $18 a piece). While this spot is a bit pricey, it’s worth a visit the next time you are in this nabe.
Labor Day, marking the unofficial end of summer, brings a trace of sadness to us at Pub Crawl NYC. While September still offers good weather month for NYC pub crawls and, if lucky, October can as well, those two months just aren’t quite the same as June, July and August. Either way, we look forward to many more NYC bar crawls in the months ahead. Happy Autumn!
Located at 896 Broadway in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Divine B&G is a small neighborhood bar with a friendly staff and a small backyard (though there were no seats in the back area during our visit). Divine B&G offers a limited selection of Hookah and has a pool table.
