    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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 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

    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.

    Awful. Wasn't allowed to enter because I was driving. Bouncer saw me parking in the front and said I can't come in. Mind you I don't even drink alcohol. The craziest thing I've ever heard on my life.

    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.
