    Summer Negroni; The negroni gets an upgrade that's just right for the soon-to-come heat. Aperol and Dolin Blanc vermouth mixed with Beefeater gin & Cocchi Americano, and garnished with grapefruit. Read more

    DO NOT help yourself to the popcorn jar that is right in the place where you'd think you can help yourself to popcorn, out of the big nice jar with the big inviting handle. The dudes will flip out.

    If you’re a cocktail novice, then this is your place. If you’re an expert, this is ALSO your place. Go off menu with the bartender’s selection, or try the Loose Noose!

    Simple cocktail bar with light fare and a good variety of drink options. The charm of it is probably that there is limited seating and the design of the interior is top notch. No fries.

    Forgot to mention the melt in your mouth goodness from the confit wings. Even with the sauce they still obtain an awesome crunch and a melt in your mouth texture#confitconnoisseurs

    If you are into Quality craft cocktails, this is a must-visit. Tonya is an excellent, talented mixologist. Go with a classic or bartenders choice - it doesn't matter it will be good.

    Incredible cocktail bar in Williamsburg. Awesome value, never had a cocktail I didn't love from them. Bartenders genuinely care about serving amazing drinks and you'll be glad they do.

    The confit buffalo wings are a must!!!! Literally culinary masterminds at their best. The meatballs are velvety and light on the pallet.

    Go Bartender's choice. Be happy you did. Also, beyond the spirit and shaken or spirit forward, feel free to indicate other preferences to the bartender. For instance, herbal, bitter or citrusy.

    Mr. Disco Punch is a drink large enough for two, but tasty enough for one. Highly recommend the Sleep Off Summer for a smooth Mezcal/Pineapple combo. Good atmosphere.

    Really chill and laid back spot. Delicious cocktails, stick with the "cocktail of the night". Not much food options but Pies n' Thighs is right next door!

    Great environment and delicious cocktails- we asked the bartender to make something off the menu of his choice and we were not disappointed!

    We recommend you order the “North Garden,” an-off-the-menu concoction - aromatic bitters, Scotch, bourbon, apple brandy, sugar - that tastes like Scotch on MDMA. Also at Death & Company this summer. Read more

    Tanya makes the best cocktails. Right now she's making "Autumn in Jersey" a bitch's brew of Lairds Bonded Applejack, Lemon, Orgeat (almond syrup) and Bitters. She must be a Ranger fan.

    Get their $9 - you won't get better bang for your buck anywhere else in the city (which is not to say their more expensive cocktails are worth the money).

    Overproof bourbon/cognac juleps, old-fashioned on freaking massive pieces of sculptor ice, frosty as hell daiquiris. $9-10. Cheap. Back that up with a can of beer for $4. You need a drink. Trust.
