Annsley...You Got it All Wrong!

  • Yes, I would go back!

Did the NYMAG reviewer pop into this place on her way home only to rush off to write a quickie review or what? What's with the focus on the interiors...its a bar review? Let me say that I love NYMAG I frequent the online reviews at least once a week but when it comes to this place OMG, you got it all wrong. I love Trophy Bar, as do some of the illest djs I have ever seen in Brooklyn OK, tealights and tiled backsplashes, I understand you Annsley. Live in NYC long enough you will notice it is divided into 2 aesthetics: OLD WORLD NY (Marlow & Sons, Huckleberry,etc.) and END OF THE WORLD NY (LIT, MAX FISH, etc.) while I love both as they emulate a time when NYC was golden... what matters the most to me is the music, the drinks and God willing the dancing. Yes, Trophy is seemingly fashioned old world style (with a sick collection of well curated trophies) but when the beats are thumping and the crowd is hopping you understand why this (clean) little underground dance-speakeasy spot fits in under the relentless rhythm of the JMZ.

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.
