Best Cocktail Bar:

the Narrows
(1037 Flushing Ave, Bushwick)
Serving up a seasonably shifting range of classics like Old Fashioneds, Vieux Carrés and Milano-Torinos alongside genre-benders like the jala-piquant Que Bonita or the bourbon-barreled Derringer, the kind barkeeps at The Narrows know cocktail tradition, and tweak it with brio. Given their many great beers on hand and a fine wine list, too, as well as a large garden patio of topiary repute, you’ll soon forget how to drink elsewhere.



Runner Up: Henry Public
(329 Henry St, Cobble Hill)
The Taft-era suspenders are a bit much. But otherwise the general old timey-ness at this Cobble Hill cocktail den feels effortless and inviting. Expert cocktails are classic yet creative and make liberal use of potent elixirs like absinthe and smoky Islay Scotch.
