Brooklyn >Night of Joy
Citysearch Editorial Profile. Every au-currant establishment in New York is required to have a retro look, but this bar takes it back further with Victorian furniture, a marble fireplace and an antique wooden birdcage; you half expect to find a dish of Werther's Originals on the table. Despite the grandma's-living-room feel, the bar is full of the kind of tattooed people she'd never let you hang out with, plus a pool table. It's sort of a cocktail bar--jalapeno tequila with black currant and lime juices; rum, orange blossom and lemonade; rosemary bourbon, ginger and lime, etc.--though none of the drinks have more than three ingredients, meaning no 20-minute wait per cocktail. There are also six wines, by the glass only, and while the beer list is mostly mainstream stuff like Amstels and Coronas, local beers from Six Points and Brooklyn Brewery get some love.
