Bathed in the velvety red glow of darkroom lights, this swanky corner bar offers a welcome alternative to a long ride home on the F train for city-weary denizens of Park Slope. Like the customers, the atmosphere is relaxed, with cushy, broken-in couches and armchairs where the jeans-and-rumpled-polo set lounges and sips drinks from the well-apportioned bar. DJ styles vary by the day, ranging from hip-hop to indie rock to soul. Aspiring troubadours should look into the open mic night on Tuesday evenings. The drink list features a bevy of flavored martinis—everything from fresh basil gimlets to blood orange margaritas—which the casual patron would do well to sample.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
