Go for the booze; stay for the schmooze.

The comfortably hip vibe of the place is literally personified by the assortment of characters behind the bar: Katharine, who's not above a good goof despite her funky good looks; Louisa and Vanessa, with their mellow cool and good humor; snarky Spencer, with his souped-up Vespa; and James, who'll try to convince you he's really a British prince (even with that Irish accent). If the warm and inviting interior doesn't win you over, the bartenders will, if you give them half a chance.

Last Exit- not just a book anymore...

Not only are the bartenders the nicest I've found in the city, but the clientele is laid back and fun as well. You'll find no pretenses in this cozy neighborhood bar with inexpensive drinks and a raging specialty martini list-(try the No Exit). My favorite nights are Pub Quiz nights, on the first and third Monday of every month, where you can test your trivia knowledge and get nice and drunk doing it. It's rare to find a place that aims to please as much as Last Exit does. It's a real neighborhood lounge bar. And the DJ's rock!

The First, The Best

Before Smith Street and Williamsburg, there was Last Exit.... This bar was the first to bring Manhattan to Brooklyn, so we never had to leave this borough again. The lighting is dim, the couches are tattered but comfy, It always has a real sexy vibe going on. And when you least expect it, full body shots on top of the bar break out, or a great dance party happens. GREAT for a date. Oh yeah, and they have a smokin' garden....

Getting too popular

This used to be my absolute favorite Brooklyn hangout, but now it's become overrun with Cobble Hill quasi-hipsters. Still, happy hour is cheap, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere divey enough without being nasty. One of the best bars in the hood, if only fewer people thought so...

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
