fast becoming a superfuture local haunt, this place is a modern take on the speakeasy's of days gone by. located in the middle of nowhere greenpoint/williamsburg. the bar is part western tavern, part prohibition era lounge and these guys do the best cocktails this side of the empire state. everything is made fresh with gourmet ingredients. bar food is not bad either. mostly breads, gourmet sandwiches and cheese plates. our fav cocktail is the hemingway. 2 of these babies and kiss your sobriety goodbye.
