8. Timboo's
We once lived down the street from Bill de Blasio for a few months, when this bar stood on the corner. You could tell it was a relic that wouldn't be around much longer, and indeed we were right: after stopping in only a handful of times, chatting with the wacky bartender with a million stories and a bunch of the kind and boozy regulars, the owners retired, and this place became Skylark. Nothing against Skylark; when we asked a bunch of notable Brooklynites once about their favorite bars, a few—Alex Ross Perry, Lauren Belski—told us it was Skylark. Still, it's no Timboo's, for better and worse.
