    This is one of the coolest most diverse crowds I've ever found at a bar. This place is often nearly an even mix of straight and gay. I've met some fabulous people here including the entire staff. :-)

    Brunch was glorious. The Kinks were on when we arrived and stayed 4 hours... and 4 rounds later to Pet Sounds. Whatever awesome dish you decide on, make sure to pair it with the kale and to share.

    Favorite brunch spot in NYC. Great ambience. Nice staff. Their dinner menu is not as good as the brunch, but the vibe is so great all the time that it doesn't matter. Fun night scene too.

    Excellent Bloody Marys and brunch combos make this a go-to for breakfast, but it's an equally appealing evening destination for dinner, drinks, or a late-night dance party.

    Taste - bar bites, like grass-fed meatballs and a potato-and-kale tortilla...also the drink menu includes Dark & Stormy and the Bushwick Fizz and local brew staples. Read more

    Try the Diego if you're looking for a little boozy something with a spicy kick. Then come ring our buzzer if you haven't noticed us in the corner table playing chess.

    get there when you've already had a few drinks on a Saturday (the wait at the bar is way too long). great dancing in the back room with weird techno/lazers. one helluva time for being in Bushwick.

    Everytime I have come here the service is the worst. I have left a number of times. Also not a fan of the awful tiny stools. BUT I still love Tandem anyways.

    You can't really go wrong ordering their brunch, but I almost always get the quiche with sides of kale and grits. And you're not allowed to leave without ordering at least two pints of bloody marys.
