    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    First time here-I'm feeling ambiance.. Honestly this wouldn't be my regular place to come :-) but we'll see how I feel at the end. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

    Love dancing at Tandem on the weekend, but never show up sober. Getting drunk there is near impossible after midnight.

    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.

    Hip dance bar. This place has huge open space. There's a dance floor in the back.

    As a brunch spot, sure. As a nightclub it's like falling into a college party from freshman year - except everyone is 30.

    The dancing in the back is so hit or miss that it's always an ironic hit, if that makes any sense

    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.
