Best Late Happy Hour:
(706 Washington Ave, Prospect Heights)
Buy one draft at happy hour, and get a second one free by redeeming your buyback tarot card. After the night’s burlesque or dance or trivia event, the deal magically reappears between midnight and 2, when the weird little room reaches peak coziness.
Runner Up: Abilene
(442 Court St, Carroll Gardens)
Abilene has been a home away from home for many an, um, editor at this magazine; it’s the kind of place you just seem to end up, way past your bedtime, the only one in the place, talking to the bartender about 90s indie rock. Hence, the midnight happy hour observed Sundays through Thursdays, perfect with their shamefully delicious snacks.
