Beneath the rumbling JMZ trains sits an arty, unpretentious hangout with a killer happy hour and a jukebox that spins old-school 45s..
On a bar-bereft stretch of Broadway, this sign-less storefront (look for the sidewalk awning) serves as an understated oasis for South Williamsburg denizens. Inside the vintage-themed room with slate-gray walls, black leather booths, a chandelier concocted from gramophone horns and, naturally, tons of trophies, you'll find eight draft beers (including summery Hennepin and hoppy Lagunitas IPA), inventive cocktails utilizing fresh fruit, and a '50s-era jukebox spinning 45s that span everything from Salt-N-Pepa to the Zombies to Earth, Wind and Fire.
Hits: You'll want to permanently camp out at the backyard's picnic tables or snuggle into the leather booths and max out to the tunes on the vintage juke.
Misses: Searching for the entrance to this sign-free spot may be a bit frustrating. There's no need for Manhattan-style pretension in South Williamsburg.
