Admittedly, the name makes this one sort of an obvious choice. But earlier, when we talked about a "quiet place to drink whiskey and listen to decent music in peace," this is what we meant. A laid back, even-keeled neighborhood spot, the Brooklyn Inn is an ideal place to wander into and unwind, whether you're hoping to sit at the bar uninterrupted or insinuate yourself into a game of pool in the back room. History and architecture buffs will appreciate the old, dark wood and high ceilings, and just about anyone who comes through its doors will appreciate the serenity that comes to you in a place that's everything a local bar should be.
