  • Berry Park
    From its picturesque rooftop beer garden with a city-skyline view to its giant projection screen broadcasting soccer matches and its Simpsons trivia night, Berry Park entertains patrons drinking German draft beers and devouring the menu’s upscale comfort cuisine. Indoor picnic tables bear duck-fat fries and veggie burgers blending herbivore-friendly items such as butternut squash and gluten-free quinoa, and tables in the beer garden shelter plates of shepherd’s pie with their blue Hofbrau München umbrellas. Brunch stretches itself across three hours every Saturday and Sunday, and the kitchen is open late on weekends to accommodate night owls and early birds with jet lag.

  • The People's Republic of Brooklyn
    Strains from live DJs and the happy chatter of busy silverware resound off the exposed-brick walls and looping whorls of the wooden bar at People's Republic of Brooklyn. Red tabletops billet platters of seared, fried, or blackened catfish, and plates of free-range chicken don adventurous garnishes such as avocado or the essence of an air kiss. Comfort-fare sides conjure nostalgia among guests perched at the bar, with options including mac 'n' cheese, deviled eggs, and sautéed arugula serving as foundations for a wide range of cocktails.

  • Union Hall
    Union Hall is a 5,000-square-foot converted warehouse featuring eclectic Explorer's-Club-meets-library Victoriana d?cor. The establishment also offers live music, indoor bocce ball, and a selection of drinks and pub food to its patrons. Before checking out the bocce-ball courts or staking a claim among the comfy chairs and conforming couches, order up your Union Sampler, a platter of appetizers flanked by twin cylinders of brain-lubricating PBR. Crack a can and try to decide which flavor sector will be the first succulent sacrifice. The platter includes chicken potstickers with sake-soy dipping sauce, corn dogs with a cup of Dijon mustard, and roasted-chicken Tex-Mex rolls with three cheeses, black beans, and a jalape?o cr?me-fraiche dip. With the hard decisions behind you, toast with a dining partner before reading one of the leather-bound books aloud for a bit of interactive bar reading.

If You Can’t Make It, Try This: Visit Gran Electrica (5 Front Street, Dumbo), which is helmed by the same earth-minded trio behind Colonie. Here, though, chefs transform local ingredients into Mexican-style street food.

  • Saint Vitus
    Saint Vitus is a great place to rock out—if you can find it. The entrance’s two simple black doors nestle quietly into a wall of black cinderblocks with no sign to announce them. Behind them sits a speakeasy-style bar designed by Matthew Maddy, the architect of Weather Up and Anella, where red candlelight bleeds onto a black mahogany bar and a handful of simple tables. Black onyx tiles line the wall behind the bar, where bartenders pair beer-shot combos and fill glasses with whisky-based Brooklyn Brine Pickle Back. The signature drink, the Saint Vitus, infuses Maker’s Mark with honey, fresh lemon, and a pour of Nero D’avola wine. The bar also satisfies appetites with bite-sized buns filled with cheesesteak, pulled pork, or bbq tofu. Though it is a speakeasy, the bar is hardly the secret. The real treasure lies in the back, behind a pair of whitewashed sliding doors. Inside the blackened room, an elevated stage invites heavy-metal and rock bands to climb atop its unfinished wooden surface. The venue, which is named after a Black Sabbath song, was carefully built by the musician-bartender-owners, who told Gothamist.com that “we designed this place to be a musician’s dream…we built it to our specifications for the best sound and stage set-up”. An open floor stretches in front of the stage, edged by circular black booths that shine like new records or a mosher’s forehead. Though the calendar is often heavy with metal and hard-rock acts such as Eyehategod and BlackGates, the owners have been known to lighten things up with singer-songwriter acts such as Waxahatchee.
