It’s been a while since our last bar crawl through the northwestern corner of Brooklyn. In that time, Fresh Kills, a cocktail spot named after the old Staten Island landfill, opened at 161 Grand Street. A bit further north, Falcon Laundry, a cocktail bar with a rooftop, opened at 65 North 7th Street. Finally, Brooklyn Barge Bar, located at 3 Milton Street in Greenpoint, is an outdoor spot open for its first full summer. We hope to make it to Brooklyn Barge Bar before the summer of 2016 is over. We look forward to describing each spot briefly in this space.
We haven’t pub crawled through Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens recently. Since our last visit, a handful of cocktail-focused spots have opened. Le Boudoir, at 135 Atlantic Avenue, is a French cocktail and wine bar. Approximately a mile east, just south of Atlantic Avenue at 104 Bond Street, is Robert (connected to the restaurant Building on Bond, aka Bob). Further south and west from Robert, at 387 Court Street, is August Laura, in Italian cocktail bar. Once we’ve visited these spots, we look forward to providing brief reviews in this space.
Our NYC Bar of the Day: Butterfield 8, located at 5 East 38th Street in Midtown Manhattan.
During this Pokemon GO craze, we’ve learned of several new Manhattan bars to open below 14th Street. Over on Avenue B, Virgola has opened its third location at 221 Avenue B. Just a few blocks south of Virgola, the bar Lucky has opened in the old Boxcar Lounge space at 168 Avenue B. Finally, further south in the Lower East Side, Paloma Rocket, a craft-beer, serve-yourself spot has opened at 7 Clinton Street. As always, after we’ve had a chance to visit these spots, we’ll provide you with a brief review. Stay tuned.
It was 228 years ago on this date that New York State ratified the United States Constitution, becoming the 11th state to do so. Therefore, July 26th is a great day to drink some New York State beer and eat some New York State food. A great beer bar for the occasion is Little Town NYC in Manhattan’s Union Square, which focuses on NY beer and food. Today is also a great day for a NYC pub crawl!
