Where To Go For The Best Cocktails In Brooklyn?

Nightlife Bars Top Cocktail Spots In Brooklyn Rabbit Hole Fernanda Paronetto Jared Zuckerman

New York is known for having some of the coolest bars and best signature cocktails in the world! So, we decided to show you a few of my favorite spots, serving the top cocktails in Brooklyn, to start your drinking adventures throughout NYC!

Many of you come to New York in search of the hottest bars and crazy cocktails in town! So, due to countless requests, for the very 1st episode, of our 2nd YouTube Season, we decided to shoot a short a sweet video about 3 of our favorite bars to start off your journey to find your favorite spot!

I, once again, invited my friend Jared Zuckerman, a travel and food expert, to come explore NY with me, off the beaten path!

We visited 3 places in Brooklyn, with fantastic cocktail: Rabbit Hole, a true local hotspot, Lighthouse BK where we tried their signature cocktails and saw how they insert sustainability into their business and finally Huckleberry Bar, with their seasonally driven menu and famous outdoor patio!

We got a bit tipsy along the way, but I think that that was the point, right?

Oh! And don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to our channel!!!

Disclosure: Do not EVER drink and drive! Call an Uber or just head to the subway for a quick and commute back home!

The Rabbit hole is truly one of the secret gems in Brooklyn. The spot is over 10 years old, but it didn’t start off as a restaurant/bar. The owner, Lawrence Elliott, opened a bakery called The Read Café, with the most delicious homemade pastries. In no time, it became the neighborhood’s to-go spot, filled with the local crowd.

Their pastries are still known for being fantastic and their best sellers are the cookies, muffins and scones.

But, today we can to talk about their cocktail bar! We decided to try two drinks and the result was as expected: super soft, well-balanced and flavorful drinks!

We had the French Marguerita made with tequila, cherry liquor, ginger and garnished cherry, and The Smoke, that is a mixture of Laphroaig – a Single Malt peated Whisky, clove syrup and lemon juice with burning stick of rosemary.

It’s on the top of the list for drinks. Plus, they also offer an amazing brunch, lunch and dinner menu and their outdoor garden is perfect for the warmer months!

Hours: Daily, from 9am – 11pm

The 2nd place we visited was Lighthouse Brooklyn. We’re written about them in the past, and decided to shoot a video since we love it! This spot is also a winner for two reasons: First, their cocktails, of course; and two, their Mediterranean inspired menu is out of this world!

We spoke to the owners, and brothers, Naama and Assaf, that showed us the reasons of why their spot is always overflowing with great people.

The entire story about Lighthouse is focused on sustainability and locally sourced ingredients and the concept that everything is recyclable. As they say: “We recycle, compost, and collaborate with other green minded organizations to grow, improve and educate ourselves, our staff, our guests.”

Well, now to the drinks…Assaf prepared the Mezcalito, made with Mezcal, jalapeno, agave, fresh lime and salt and the Summer Sangria, with gin, St. Germain, sake and seasonal fruit.

The Sangria was super refreshing and the Mezcalito is perfect if you’re into spicy, stong cocktails, but nonetheless, smooth to drink!

We have to confess that we did have their mezze platter and I do recommend it blindly. It’s extremely tasty. It has smoked labne, hummus, tahini + arissa, charred eggplant labne, olives and a hot staff.

Now…headed to our 3rd and final stop…

Hours:
Monday: Closed
Tuesday – Thursday: 6pm – 11pm
Friday & Sunday: 6pm – 12am
Saturday – Sunday Brunch 12pm – 4pm

Location: 145 Borinquen Place (corner of Keap)

And for our grand finale, we headed to Huckleberry Bar, that is famous for its seasonally craft cocktails!

We had the talented and beautiful Serena doing a few of her favorite drinks for us!

We tried the Strawberry Field, obviously named after the Beatles’ song, made with house-infused Dill Vodka, wódka, house-made strawberry syrup, lemon juice!

The other drink was The Sun Also Rises – a great mix of square one botanical vodka, Amaro Nonino, yellow Chartreuse, cinnamon syrup, Angostura bitters and prosecco.

Their menu is quite entertaining with very peculiar names for their drinks, like: Message in a Bottle, Drinking at the Gym, Bahia Via Brooklyn, and my favorite, I Demand Satisfaction! Pretty curious, right?

Why go there?

“Though it’s just about the best bar in East Williamsburg for a date, the atmosphere is just as dynamic as the menu; it’s the perfect place to enjoy a sunny day from the shade of our lush garden, to relax by candlelight on weeknights, or to get your nightlife fix on the weekends with some of Brooklyn’s best DJs.”

Hours:
Monday – Friday: 4pm – 4am
Saturday – Sunday: 1pm – 4am

Location: 588 Grand Street

“Africa Miranda is a dynamic speaker, host and spokesmodel, with distinctive style and quick wit, that won the hearts of many across the US, and around the globe, as the breakout star of Bravo TV’s ‘The New Atlanta’.

Her unique personal style, sparkling personality, and glorious, attention-grabbing mane, have made Africa an in-demand beauty expert and event host.

Whether she is visiting exotic locales – #AfricasAdventures – representing major brands, or sharing her take on hair trends and celebrity style, Africa brings her brand of accessible glamour to any setting.

Her first two offerings, the Facial Elixir and Luminous Body Mist, have garnered rave reviews and are fast becoming cult beauty favorites.

“The first offering, the Facial Elixir, is born of Africa’s special connection to the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro. Lovingly called “Brazil in a bottle,” the Facial Elixir helps to recapture the vacation “glow” using Brazilian ingredients Maraca Oil and Cupuaçu Butter.”

“The Edge is my go to spot in Harlem for brunch, lunch, and everything in between! I was turned onto this great little spot by a friend and fell in love. A great blend of Jamaican and American dishes.”

Located in Hamilton Heights, in Harlem, The Edge is a great spot to visit. Their kitchen opens Mondays through Fridays at 10am, and as they say, they serve “flavors of Jamaica and England, with a little New York attitude”.

Their menu is also divided by these locations. So, you can expect everything from Jamaican jerk chicken, to English grilled cheese sandwich and New Yorker bagels with smoked salmon.

“The Back Room is speakeasy that takes you back to “old New York.” Once you get past walking underground and through a tunnel you will find this hidden gem. Perfect for a late night drink or a get together with friends. My favorite touch is that all of the drinks are served in teacups!”

Located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, this speakeasy is certainly a secret spot we love. It’s known to be one of the only two speakeasies in New York City that actually operated during Prohibition Era, in the 1920’s, and is still in existence today.

You’re wondering “Why teacups?” Well, back in the Prohibition Era, that was how alcohol was served, so no one suspected and people could enjoy their drinks.

Monday’s are known to host great live Jazz music, while during weekends, they bring in DJs to entertain the night.

Oh! We l-o-v-e this place. It’s located at the very tip of East Williamsburg, and it’s always pretty packed. They definitely serve some of the best and tastiest vegan American comfort food in New York, hence the huge success.

We recommend not arriving there too hungry, since the waiting time can be crazy.

Have you ever wanted a place that played live R&B, Funk and Soul music 7 nights a week? Well, this is the place! Located in the Greenwich Village, in Manhattan, The Groove started back in the 1990’s and showcases some of the best musicians and performers in the city.

They serve a few appetizers like nachos, quesadillas, mozzarella cheese sticks. Plus, you’ll also find buffalo chicken wings, salads & veggies, sandwiches, a few side dishes like French fries and onion rings. And still, bigger entrées like the chicken kebab and the steak frites.

Located in the hype neighborhood of Williamsburg, the B&B created by Lyon Porter, offers 4 bedrooms in a freestanding townhouse. Oh, plus it’s the only B&B in Willyb! Pretty intimate, right?

“The Cowboy is luxury with a local sensibility. In the morning, breakfast is delivered from their local hospitality partners, so one can decide between an almond chocolate croissant, biscuits and gravy, or keep it healthy and have an organic green juice.

At night, guests can mingle with the native Brooklynites during the various dinner parties and events hosted by the owner.”

The décor is rustic and intimate at the same time, making you feel you’re at home, or at least, at a friend’s place. Every detail is intriguing, done with much love, but effortless at the same time, which definitely gives it a twist.

Urban Cowboy is definitely the place to stay to have a real Brooklyn experience!

Not sure what you’ll find close to it? We can suggest a few spots to pass by!

If you’re in the mood of eating fantastic seasonal American food, at a neighborhood style restaurant, try Concord Hill.

Beco Bar is one of the spots where the cool kids hang, so be sure to go there for some super traditional Brazilian food and drinks! Try the famous Caipirinhas!

If you’re in the mood of shopping and you love vintage store, you should schedule some time to visit these 3 stores in Brooklyn. Are you traveling without your girl? Go there buy her a great gift! She’ll surely love it!

Still craving more…just search our website to see what this fantastic “hood” has to offer!

We LOVE it!

Your Next Go-To Music Spot: Brooklyn Steel in East Williamsburg

Culture Music Brooklyn Steel Entrance Box Office

We are so excited with this new music venue that opens tonight in Brooklyn! The Brooklyn Steel in East Williamsburg debuts tonight and is the newest venue, part of Bowery Presents’ amazing portfolio!

Culture Music Brooklyn Steel Entrance Box Office

For tonight, Brooklyn Stell hand picked, of course, a local band called LCD Soundsystem – and tickets sold out in a few minutes for all the nights they perform! Wow! What they play? They explain their music to have a ‘new romantic with an industrial edge’.

Tonight’s show is completely sold out, but don’t hesitate to check their website. There are other amazing upcoming events you can still attend!

When the founders of Bowery Presents, John Moore and Jim Glancy, found this former steel manufacturing factory, their excitement was evident.

After getting the approval to start construction, their baby was born, literally 9 months later – definitely a record for a space like this!

Their new home can host up to 1,800 lively, animated guests and is certainly a unique project.

From bars created out of repurposed steel, super high ceiling, very simple gorgeous rustic decor… to a movable stage and large gorgeous bathrooms (which is definitely a plus to support a place this size), they will certainly offer priceless experiences and will be the new paradise for NYC concertgoers.

If you want to be part of the local Brooklyn scene, this is certainly your next go-to spot!


More about them:

The Bowery Presents is the leading New York City-based independent concert promoter. Its business is built around great music and its mission is to bring the best bands to the NYC metropolitan area and the rest of the Northeast, while providing the best concert experience for both fans and artists at reasonable ticket prices. 

Bowery has established itself as a dynamic entertainment experience and is the ultimate music tastemaker. The Bowery has been on music’s cutting edge since its inception, and it produced more concerts in 2010 than any other organization in New York.

The Brooklyn Steel in East Williamsburg is definitely bringing a new life to our hood!

If you want to have an early dinner or if you’re hungry after the show, we’d recommend going to Concord Hill. It’s just a 8-10 minute walk from there. For drinks, try Beco Bar or Night of Joy!

The area is fantastic, so we also recommend you exploring the neighbor neighborhood called Greenpoint. Another spot where the cool Brooklyn kids hang. We created a fantastic Greenpoint Guide of what to do there, plus a surprise at the end!

Location: 319 Frost Street
