From the team behind Jimmy at The James and Oscar Wilde comes this chill maritime-themed cocktail bar on the water in Brooklyn. The drinks menu is divided into classics (dubbed “Show Some Respect”), low-ABV drinks and signature cocktails (“The New Frontier”). Small bites eschew traditional bar food for house-made tzatziki, Hudson Valley foie gras mousse and Long Island duck rillettes with mustard and cornichons. Happy hour features beer and wine specials, and a different daily cocktail.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The high-octane Tiki classic Navy Grog has made a big splash with guests.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: With warmer weather on the horizon, Grand Republic’s garden is now open at 5 p.m. every day.
