Prohibition-style speakeasy, complete with fancy cocktails and old-school decor, finds a home in Hipsterville, USA..
Despite the fact that it's located right under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, a long mahogany bar, wainscot wood paneling, wooden slat blinds, sconce lighting, old-fashioned cash registers, gold brocade wallpaper, and a soundtrack of mostly pre-1969 American classics provide a romantic backdrop. It's a pleasant alternative to the otherwise uber-cool Williamsburg bar scene. The $9 specialty cocktails, served up by friendly mixologists, are reasonably priced and extremely tasty. High-back bar stools make for a more comfortable drinking experience.
Hits: The Richardson has a great selection of wines, liquors and frothy German and American beers on tap.
Misses: Although the marble-painted stucco columns that separate the long angular bar are designed to create a more intimate vibe, the space still feels a bit too large.
