From three of the guys that brought you Iona, Banter, the 60-seat, self-dubbed "public house" in Williamsburg, revels in beer, whiskey, and soccer. European footie fans gather on weekday afternoons and early weekend mornings to watch the matches live on three screens above the copper-plated bar, which in turn satiates them with daily (until 8pm) happy hour specials and breakfast sandwiches and coffee for the morning games. Beer comes in a selection of 40 bottles, from Corona to Chimay Blue, and a similarly well-rounded 20 or so on tap, a mix of local brews like Sixpoint and imports (served in true 20 oz pints) like Bitburger Pilsner and Gaffel Kolsch. Whiskey lines the bar, namely Jameson and Michters bottles with single malt options like Glenfiddich. Soak up the booze with one of four $8 paninis, like prosciutto and mozzarella or Portobello mushroom and fontina. For quieter conversation, high backed wooden booths and seats tucked away in the back offer some privacy, and when there isn't a match on, old-school games Sorry and dominoes pick up the slack.
