B61 @ Alma:
Named for the bus that roams these streets, B61 is the kind of place you visit for a pre-dinner drink…and wind up staying all night. With iron gates pushed aside, the huge windows behind the long walnut bar offer skyline views and cool breezes during summer. Chips and salsa keep drinkers thirsty; the jukebox, chatty bartenders, and games like “Clue” and “Sorry” keep them entertained. A darkened back room offers free pool and comfy leather-backed booths, couches, and tables. As is common in this hard-to-define ’hood west of the BQE, the crowd is diverse and local, and includes those waiting for tables at Alma, the Mexican restaurant upstairs. Should you decide to diss those dinner plans, B61 welcomes you to order in food from anywhere.
