The Crown Inn in Crown Heights—with its curved ceilings, antique lighting fixtures salvaged from ships, and wood panels head to toe—exudes a classy, nautical feel. “This place was old and dilapidated — a real dungeon,” said co-owner Matt Roff. “Now, I think it has a traditional New York feel.” On that note, the cocktails also carry a hint of the past, with a focus on classic drinks like solid martinis and a “perfect Manhattan” ($6 to $9). The bar stocks around 40 types of bourbon, with sixteen taps pouring four wines and twelve rotating beers, including Kelso Nut Brown, Blue Point Black IPA, Sixpoint Crisp Lager, and McKenzie's Black Cherry Cider ($4 to $7).
