    Great cocktail bar tucked away in Brooklyn. Back patio is awesome in the summer! Be sure to bring your paper money, they are cash only.

    With cocktails, beer, and $1 oysters daily until 7pm, the Narrows is a Bushwick favorite that also features a welcoming backyard and a handful of late-night snacks.

    Get the “Word” cocktail - scotch, jalapeño tequila, maraschino, green chartreuse, lime & bitters. Cute backyard for outdoor seating!

    Perfect for a weekday night. Get a cocktail or a beer and share a heaping bowl of fries with your friends. The narrow bar corridor can get crowded during peak hours.

    Retro, romantic lounge bar with an extensive shelf of not-your-average/everyday liquors & aperitifs! Perfect place to discover tasty cocktails & new liquors! HIGHLY recommend!

    Try the Oyster happy hour at The Narrows. They offer a cocktail menu, and $1 oysters until 7pm. The Que Bonita drink mixes jalapeño infused tequila with lime, cucumber and a dash of simple syrup. Read more

    Awesome cocktails. Great atmosphere. Cute garden in the back. But terrible oysters (served in salt water brine = extremely salty + got me out of commission for the whole night).

    Unique and cozy spot for creative cocktails and craft beer in Brooklyn. The patio is so beautiful on a summer night out.

    Come to this art deco inspired lounge for the original and seasonal cocktails served by the amazing and sexy Lee. Try a Caufield’s Dream, or a Babushka.

    Gotta say, ballsy move to make "It's narrow!" the concept for your bar. Was getting bumped every 5 seconds in there. AWESOME patio though.

    Watch out for the crazy guy who lives upstairs and has no qualms about tossing water without warning or entreaty for quiet on people chatting outside. Owner is great, venue charming.
