Troost Bar is one of Greenpoint’s treasures and we’re there, a lot. Yes…we love it! It’s one of these place you walk in and never expect to see what’s inside!
Yes, we’ve said it a thousand time, and we repeat: We Love Greenpoint! The so many new places always opening that we are always UnCovering, the older, traditional spots are some of our favorites.
Troost Bar is one of them. They have a relatively small, but great place, with a beautiful outdoor garden. It’s completely full of plants and flowers everywhere you look.
At night they get pretty full with very good music, a great crowd, a full bar, coffee till 2am and a the relaxing outdoor area is obviously super coveted.
It’s an unpretentious, low-key place, with lots of charm where you’ll have great bites and drinks!
If you like wine, this is the place to go in Greenpoint. Why? Well, the owners John Ortiz and Jaime Eldredge opened this place due to the lack of a good wine bar in the neighborhood. And, they’ve done a great job!
They don’t have an extensive food list, but they do offer a few snacks, as they call it. You’ll be able to nibble on something, while drinking to help you hold your alcohol. They have, for example, a very nice cheese platter with a meat of choice, also sardines and mixed olives.
They have a no wifi and laptop policy, that we think it’s perfect! It makes people actually talk and enjoy the present moment with friends, right?
