    For such a little kitchen POWB packs a crazy punch. Try pickles, oysters, and whatever is listed as a special. Love the chick liver bacon sandy. Get the whiskey sour fresh squeezed. N dont be a pussy

    Come to this spot right off of the Williamsburg Bridge during happy hour for a beer + a free shot. Also good for dates, with solid service, nice decor (namely the windows and seats), and great tunes.

    This whiskey-centric bar makes smart cocktails and draws a more civilized crowd than many of its Williamsburg neighbors. The food menu—comfort food with some twists—is no slouch.

    Been skeptical about Mint Juleps in NYC but this place makes a good one. Sage Cuc Julep is great too. For warm drinks, hot toddy & spiked hot chocolate is tasty. For food, pulled pork for the win!

    Drinks aside, the food here is on point. The chicken liver and bacon and pulled pork sandwiches are a must. Oysters and tartare are also highly recommended.

    everything is awesome. The chicken liver bacon sandwich is great with their cocktails & if you're feeling overwhelmed with drink choices ask the bartender/server to surprise you. They know their shit!

    Great cocktails, wait staff is accommodating to the point they will try to rearrange tables to fit your party but without interrupting the moving party (pickle backs for all)

    Great selection of brown liquids of every kind. The staff is super nice and will help you find a whiskey or bourbon you'll enjoy. The food is alright though, so don't come hungry

    Cool, cozy spot with great cocktails and a solid bourbon and rye selection. Eat the deviled eggs and pulled pork on a seeded brioche roll.

    Since you were wise enough to step in this gem, don't be a fool and not order the pull pork sandwich. Top that with the Bermuda triangle and you'll be a happy camper.

    Try the chicken-liver baguette, with rich chicken-liver mousse; crisp bacon; sriracha-infused mayo; & crunchy frisée coated in green-apple vinaigrette. It’s one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011 Read more

    If you're the DJ loving type, the bartender's playlist is usually top notch. I'm currently here just for the shrimp tacos which are freaking excellent.

    You should be ordering a whiskey and the chicken liver and bacon sandwich. If a book full of whiskey isn't enough, the cocktails are great too.

    You can't go wrong with anything on this menu. It's absolutely perfect. But if I had to pick, the Bermuda triangle to start and the pork slider to finish it off.

    This whiskey-driven Williamsburg bar takes its name from Charles Bukowski's debut novel, but fortunately it doesn't take any cues from the drunk-lit master infamously nutritionless eating habits. Read more

    If you love yourself, eat the Chicken Bacon Liver sando. If you don't love yourself, eat the Chicken Bacon Liver sandwich. Then you WILL love yourself.

    No doubt carries one of the best & largest selections of brown liquor in the borough of Brooklyn. Pair any one of them with the Chicken Liver sandwich.
