No zombie nights, no Jim Beam slushies, no castoff furniture from a grounded plane. Screw all that East Williamsburg gimmickry! This cavernous haunt has respectability on its mind. Indeed, proprietor Sean O’Rourke—who also co-runs Pencil Factory in Greenpoint, a veritable doppelgänger—stakes this spinoff bar’s reputation on the microbrews and the craft ales. That means you’ll be glugging Smuttynose IPA, Blue Point Oatmeal Stout, or Sixpoint Righteous Rye (not Red Stripe or Milwaukee’s Best) on the dark, glossy wood seating or even nicer, the smoke-filled patio. Show up on the weekends for that ultimate rite of passage into domesticated adulthood: brunch.The Morning After
Though it’s unnerving to see this space illuminated by daylight, the weekend offerings of gourmet breakfasts, coffee, and light alcohol are a great way to counteract your hangover from last night's beer binge.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
