Heath Ledger's legacy lives on at this Greenpoint bar and cafe, which serves up cocktails and traditional American fare in a rustic, no-frills setting.. In Short A nautical theme transcends this cozy, intimate space. Even with its celebrity affiliation, the vibe (and the crowd) is low-key and relaxed. Old-fashioned glass and wire lights dangle from the blonde wood ceiling above marble topped tables. The fully stocked bar, located at the center of the room, is designed to look like the prow of a ship. Specialty cocktails are $9. Whether you're looking to grab coffee with a friend, a cocktail, or a light meal, Five Leaves is the place to dock. It's a coffeehouse, cafe, bar and oyster bar all in one.
Hits: Unlike other trendy hot spots, Five Leaves pulls off the difficult task of being both a kid-friendly and urban hip establishment.
Misses: The wooden folding chairs are wobbly. Sit for too long and you may find yourself with a mild case of sea sickness; lean too far back and you may be in danger of falling overboard.
