    The Royal Tenenbaum is the perfect blend of bourbon, grapefruit juice, honey, and pine. Perfect for a cold evening. Speaking of which, try to get a table behind the host stand to protect from the cold

    Don’t tell Manhattan but Brooklyn’s Clover Club may be the best cocktail bar in the city! We’re big fans of the La Sonambula #2 and the Pep Talk and the Black Eyed Susan…and all of the punches

    The cocktails are ace, but what makes this place so great is the balance of comfort and sophistication. Try the Pep Talk if they have it, although the menu is seasonal. Wed nights have live jazz music

    Anthony is by far the best bartender in Brooklyn. The egg sandwich is amazing. And the atmosphere is one of the best in NYC. Love coming here. It will forever be my Sunday Brunch go to!!

    Try fetching combo of gin, raspberry syrup, grapefruit juice &cantaloupe juice in the Pecos County Fizz for myself / gin and champagne-fueled Boathouse Punch. Save room for the brioche bread pudding!

    Sit in the back if you're enjoying drinks with friends. Very laid back and comfortable. The Happy Hour specials are great. Almost makes drinking in NYC affordable. And the deviled eggs are the best

    The Bee's Kiss is not on the menu, but it's amazing! It's like a honey-topped cloud floating on top of your drink. The waitstaff might not know what you are asking for, but the bartender will.
