Noorman’s Kil

Noorman’s Kil

Appears in 4 Collections

With a barrage of uber-cool restaurants and bars, Williamsburg often gets marred by a reputation for pretense. Then there’s Noorman’s Kil, the relaxed antithesis to stylish, saturated crowds. This old 19th-century bar, decked out with welcoming wood and long benches, is a showcase for salvaged materials. But beyond a passion for design, the owners (alums of a few beloved local joints) are also infatuated with whiskey. They stock over 400 different kinds, including single-barrel bourbons from the likes of Evan Williams and Four Roses, and lure in new patrons with frequent bourbon tastings. When nice weather beckons, the greenery-fringed backyard is the most choice of perches.

The Limestone Cowboy (bourbon, fresh lime juice, sour mix) is a straightforward, refreshing prelude to a round of straight-up bourbon.

Arrive famished. Partaking in the grilled cheese menu, featuring such inventive concoctions as the Salona, with jalapeño jack, hot sauce, diced tomatoes and cilantro on sourdough, is a must.
