Top 5 Best Brooklyn Bars

The city of Brooklyn with a population of more than 2 million people (in 2017) clearly needs to quench the thirst of its inhabitants – and visitors. It is possible to find all kinds of bars in the Newyorker district: rooftops, speakeasy, dive bars or neighborhood bars. You can choose!


1. Lemon’s, for those looking for a rooftop

Lemon’s will seduce you in these summer days and with its spectacular view over the horizon of Manhattan. And all this, surrounded by beautiful vegetation to accompany your cocktail. A refreshing experience at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg, with cocktails that favor gin, vodka, mezcal or tequila, accompanied by fruits such as mango, guava, pears or raspberries.

Where: 80 Wythe Avenue, Williamsburg


2. Hunky Dory, cocktail bar for those looking for originality

Crown Heights is home to this cocktail bar run by mixologist Claire Sprouse. Here the cocktail menu is as original as it gets. Ingredients vary from fermented cinnamon, cucumber seeds, sunflower seeds, turmeric, rubarb and grated grapefruit. In addition, to accompany your delicious libations, the kitchen directed by Krysten Brewer will serve you the ideal accompaniment. Open from early to 1 am.

Where: 747 Franklin Avenue, Crown Heights

3. Brooklyn Inn, for those looking for a neighborhood bar

An old neighborhood bar, up and running since 2019. He was close to closing in 2007 but thanks to his loyal neighborhood the bar is still with us today. An ideal place to taste beers in the afternoon and visit a place collated by the locals.

Where: 148 Hoyt Street, Boerum Hill


4. Le Boudoir, for those looking for a speakeasy bar

In Le Boudoir, you’ll transport yourself to the time of prohibition for its speakeasy concept, but you’ll transport yourself even more to the time of Marie Antoinette with her silver chalices, neoclassical paintings and a real doorknob from Marie Antoinette’s old room. Handmade cocktails, live music and djs to contrast the concept.

Where: 135 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn Heights (behind restaurant Chez moi)


5. The Black Rabbit, for those looking for antiquity

19th century bar/restaurant where you can enjoy food, privatisations, fireplace, and beer garden. The bar opened however in 2007 and stands out for its cocktails as well.

Where: 91 Greenpoint Avenue



Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
