The 20 Best Bars in Brooklyn

Best Bar to Read



Assuming your eyesight is in good shape—the lighting can get pretty dim—this place has every other element of a perfect bar for when you’re not quite ready to go home but not really in the mood to go out out. Ample seating in booths or at the bar, a sound system that’s actually appropriate instead of abrasive, and a long list of absinthe cocktails, which always seem somehow literary to us, at least when we’re drinking them. Maybe because the bar is relatively new, the weeknight crowd tends toward neighborhood regulars. In other words, you don’t have to talk to anyone unless you want to.
Runner-Up: Union Hall (off-peak)
