    fun to go with a group and actually the nicest bouncers I've ever witnessed; was a very mixed crowd of fratty boys post college but also jersey shore castmates? drinks are strong and reasonably priced

    Obviously, pickle backs are the way to go, but the happy hour is also pretty great: $1 off all the already affordable drinks from noon to 8! Check out my review under "More Info" below! Read more

    Great early start place for a date, play a few games and then get the night started. It tends to get fairly rowdy later in the night. If you get a beer can, ask for a koozie!

    Throw down Pickle Backs (Whiskey shot w/ Pickle Juice chaser) at this massive adult rec room w/ shuffleboard, foosball, Buck Hunter, mini-basketball, and an Arcade Legends machine. Read more

    With dozens of whiskeys and scotches available for your sipping pleasure, ending the night on top of the bar seems a more-than-likely outcome. Luckily, Whiskey Brooklyn’s team has done this before. Read more

    filthy bathrooms, kitchen and staff. If you ask to complain about the service you will be threatened and thrown out. I have never experienced anything like this and truly recommend steering clear.

    Awful. They run their shit like some kind of night club and decide who's cool enough, or has enough single women with them to get in, as if Paris Hilton is in their slurping down pickle-backs.

    Soulless place, set up to cash in on the popularity of the area.Avoid and spend your bucks and one if the dozens of other smaller, friendly and real places.

    7 flat screen TVs for sports, a deep list of cocktails, bourbon, American whisky, rye, Scotch, Irish whiskey, & 1 from Japan. Grub runs the gamut from wings & sammies to tots & Hostess cupcakes. Read more

    Features modern touches like seven huge LCDs, and a DJ booth siding an elevated stripper pole (though whether your pole's elevated depends on who's on it). Read more

    Best pickle back shots I've ever had. Come on a week night and have one of the bartenders create special cocktails for you. Food is solid, too.

    Staff here are very friendly people. They do not hesitate to give buyback with pickle back shots! Wings are great. Try the bowl o' bacon.

    Horrible service and bartenders with bad attitudes. There are way cooler places to spend your money. Don't waste your time here unless you want to wait an hour to get a drink or close your tab.

    If you score 80 points at the basketball arcade, you can get a free beer, I tried 3 times and my highest score was 62. better luck next time

    Hold up, this place is confusing. Yuppie bros in Brooklyn with zero knowledge of whiskey whatsoever? Why? This place feels so manufactured, just look at the stupid shirts the barmen wear. Terrible.

    I spent hours learning shuffleboard here and drinking amazing beer. (And don't be afraid of the Pickle Backs... they're better than they sound)

    Try a Pickle Back with Tom Lawless American whiskey. Amazing selection of whiskeys and lots of bar and arcade games.

    Here's my tip: head back up the stairs and never come back. There's like 6 huge TVs, pool tables, backwards-baseball- cap music... Bad drinks too. Leave.

    Decent gastropub food and fun games. The selection of beers could be improved but then again it's called The Whiskey and not The Beer.

    Spicy pickle back is surprisingly good. First time here and bar menu looks great hope it lives up to expectations. Honestly this I have high expectations and this place looks like it won't disspoint

    Score 80 points on the basketball game for a free beer (well $1 for the game). As a seasoned pop-a-shot veteran, I was able to get a round for our whole group for under $10.

    If you love whiskey (which you should if you're at fucking whiskey Brooklyn) ask Vinnie or Joel for a Presbyterian. You won't regret it.

    Come during the day for free coozies with every beer and all no lines for the shuffleboard, basketball and skeeball.

    right next to the brewery, good alternative if the brewery is packed. Free shuffle board and cool vibe

    They have Molson Canadian which is the only reason I come here. Go earlyish to stake a claim to a spot before the douches roll in.

    If you can stand being shoulder to shoulder in a sea of bros, get yourself a few spicy pickle backs to cope.

    The wine selection is non existent, but go for the shuffleboard, spicy backs, and great music.

    Get the tater tots and a shot of Tom Lawless. And save a few bucks for skee ball and Big Buck Hunter.

    Ok, this place ain't so bad. Come with a group and have no shame in circle dancing and hogging the photo booth.

    Great mix and mingle spot. Also good for group gatherings. Cute male bartenders.

    It's popping on Sunday's for the games. Make sure you take advantage of the $10 special for a shot and a beer.

    Joel is a bartender here and he's pretty awesome. If you can wave him down, it's worth it.

    Make SURE you try the Grandpa Tom's Lemonade. Guaranteed to kick your ass even if it's your only drink!

    Good bar food, but the crowd can get a little fratty. Don't fret, the staff will take great care of you.

    Loaded tots + some Pickle Backs + a game of shuffleboard + a game of Buck Hunter = Whiskey Brooklyn is awesome.
