This Williamsburg dive appeases both newer, 20-something locals and long-time Brooklynites. There are modern amenities, like an internet jukebox up front, but most of this space is meant for one function: drinking. With just one table at the front window that looks out to Metropolitan Avenue, most patrons sidle up to the bar and choose from the bourbon- and scotch-heavy selection of liquor, which includes Evan Williams, Makers Mark, and Bush Mills, among others. And in case you forget—or have one too many Jamesons—that this is the Subway Bar, there are MTA signs all over the narrow space that serve as reminders. There’s also a large New York City subway map on display, which is actually quite handy with the L and G lines running right below.
