If you’re going to hit only one cocktail bar in Brooklyn (though it’s hard to imagine why anyone would do that, especially with Leyenda now right across the street), this is the one. Helmed by drinks doyenne Julie Reiner, this bar played an important role in revitalizing Brooklyn’s highbrow bar scene. The cocktails are always top-notch and on-trend.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The Clover Club, natch
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: If you can’t handle a late-night bar crawl, aim for eye-openers at the bar’s Saturday or Sunday brunch.
