Bar hopping in Brooklyn
Not only has the restaurant scene come alive in Brooklyn, but the bar scene is thriving as well. Here are a couple to check out: DRAM at 177 South 4th Street in the Williamsburg section. This very popular bar offer an excellent list of creative cocktails such as the Lafayette Buck, Behind God’s Back and Thieves Like Us. All contain at least six ingredients and cost $9 – reasonable in this day of $15 cocktails. SYCAMORE is located at 1118 Cortelyou Road in Ditmas Park. It is an interesting combination – a flower shop by day and a swinging bar at night. The bar is good and a little dive-y and downstairs you can sip your drink and listen to live jazz. The ambiance is funky but friendly. It’s nice to know that Brooklynites will never go thirsty.
