Not all that long ago, "going out in Bushwick" really just meant "going out to Tandem"—they were early adopters, and sort of the only game in town. Since then, the neighborhood's exploded, but Tandem's rightfully held onto its status as a neighborhood cornerstone. It's also one of those places that's a perfect choice for just about every time of day, be it brunch, dinner, early evening cocktails (theirs are excellent), or a quickly slammed 2am whiskey shot and a tall boy of PBR before you head to the DJ'd back room to disappear into a haze of strobe lights, artificial fog, and sweaty strangers. In a sometimes awkwardly spread out neighborhood, Tandem also happens to be centrally located in between hubs of other bars around the Morgan and Jefferson L stops. So convenient, it's almost as if they planned it.
