The Hideout 

266 Adelphi St., between Dekalb Ave and Willoughby Ave
Fort Greene
Brooklyn, NY 11205
Aside from the bouncer with the eye patch standing outside the thick black door, the Hideout is pretty unobtrusive. Located in a carriage house on a residential cross street, behind one of the nicer restaurants on Fort Greene’s increasingly upscale DeKalb Avenue, the Hideout is enclosed with heavy curtains and lit about halfway down the dimmer switch; the room is exactly one couch wider than the modest lengthwise bar, atop which you’ll see jars of fresh fruit and bottles of mixers. Under the shelves of whiskey is a spice rack, and eye-droppers contain the various finishing touches. The cheapest item is a $10 glass of house wine. What the hell kind of bar is this, it doesn’t even have any beer. (Though there are goldfish — albeit multicolored edible goldfish — in glass jars along the bar).-Ellen Aznavourian
