    Get in and step back in time in this great neighborhood bar that is probably better than most Manhattan fancy bars. Not only they do great cocktails but the ambiance and the staff are a charm

    If you're like me and can't get down with gin (or any hard stuff) anymore, go for the tasty, refreshing, easy-to-drink "Negroni" made with Prosecco. If you don't see it on the menu, just ask.

    No matter what your drink of choice is, if Nino is in the house, he'll sort ya. But if you need a nibble, check the panini menu go for the number 1. Their smoked mozz and fresh basil make it happen.

    Amazing, creative cocktails; it's hard to decide on one but I highly recommend the Palermo Fix...then have your friends order the others so you can sneak a taste of them!

    Ten dollar cocktails and a wood-panelled interior inspired by old school Italian mens’ clubs are the perfect mix of tucked-away, retro-modern, and thoroughly hip.

    First, Seagrams Gin will cloud the subtle taste of rosewater and muddled grapes in a cocktail. I'm not a bartender but I know drinks. Terrible. Two. My drink tasted EXACTLY like seltzer and gin. Awfu

    Angela Truesdale · June 19, 2011
  • Daniel M.

    Great spot to grab a drink while waiting for a seat at one of the near by restaurants. If you can get one of the tables in front you're golden. FYI cash only.

    Daniel McDonough · January 24, 2015
  • brian b.

    The juke box is the best $5 you'll spend on 18 songs. Matt W is the tenderest bartender. The Last Word is the final statement in cocktails. Go. Now.

    One "Ginger Old Fashion" and you feel like Dean Martin on Christmas Eve. If you come thru late night drunk & order a "Brooklyn" you might lose your phone and wallet getting home. Great cocktail bar.

    Danny Hillman · February 1, 2013
  • marvin m.

    Matt's ginger and amalfi should do the trick. Otherwise let martin and the crew update your favorites -- old fashioned, sazerac, french 75--with their expert hand.

    Great cocktails. Something for everyone here. Dark lit bar. Great for a date or a drink after having dinner at Searsucker, just two doors down

    Greg G · April 13, 2013
  • David B.

    Great cocktail bar set in an original Brooklyn members only club. Try the Brooklyn or the Ginger Manhattan. Cash only.

    David Brahler · August 1, 2015
  • Marc M.

    A huge backyard, pool table and some of the best bar staff in Brooklyn make this place a gem.

    Marc Mayer · January 1
  • Kent O.

    Amazing drinks. The whole place has an old-school/Mad Men feel. All cocktails are $10. Cash only.

    I'm a fan of the Brooklyn cocktail they serve here, although I can never quite remember how many I've had...

    Anthony Litton · March 29, 2010
  • Amelie L.

    Cocktails are 11 dollars. The list is not that long but you will still find good options

    Amelie Lelarge · February 18, 2015
  • Cam

    From the bees knees with egg whites to the bobby burns, the drinks off menu are the greatest

    Cam · April 29, 2013
  • Gradie O.

    Cool bar in an old Italian Social where the mobsters hang out on tv. Riposte is a good drink, small place, good one to hole up in.

    Gradie Oakes · October 1, 2011
  • Nate F.

    Brooklyn cocktail - straight rye whiskey, orange brandy, and bitters

    Nate Folkert · June 12, 2015
  • Justin M.

    Clover club has better cocktails, but I'd still go here for the ambiance

    Justin Moore · September 12, 2010
  • Kyle Dean R.

    oh man, the hot press sandwiches here are the best when you're drunk. especially the goat cheese one.

    Kyle Dean Reinford · April 12, 2013
  • Angie S.

    Turn the menu over...they also have hot pressed SAMICHES! All very good.

    Angie Sanders · April 24, 2013
  • JiaJia F.

    Get the Fellini if you're in the mood for bubbles, which should be always.

    JiaJia Fei · July 6, 2011
  • Alex R.

    Good cocktails, surprisingly cheap. Cash only though.

    Alex Ravenel · March 12, 2015

    Ask for a flamingo - not on the menu. Say Paul wants it back.

    Paul Rozario · January 9, 2010
  • Delon C.

    Good whiskey cocktails. The female cocktails are strong too. ;-)

    Delon C · November 30, 2013

    Probably the only place in the world with something about Canazei, besides Canazei...

    Luca DL · January 12, 2012
  • Jon S.

    $10 cocktails? It’s like they’re giving them away.

    Jon Shea · November 2, 2012

    Drinks are good. Cash only though.

    Best place in Carroll Gardens to watch the World Cup.
