The Whiskey Brooklyn: At first glance, Whiskey Brooklyn seems to have all the ingredients of your typical hipster’s paradise—whiskey cocktails, Pac-man, Miller High Life-logoed light fixtures, and shuffle board tables so revered, they were bestowed their own room. But spend a few minutes at the bar nursing an Grandpa Tom's Lemonade (Lawless whiskey, lemon, sour, soda, $9) and some interesting additions catch your eye—a camouflaged DJ booth, deep corner booths hidden in dark lighting, and, wait for it, handlebars attached to the ceiling whose only conceivable purpose is for grabbing onto while dancing atop the bar. Now we're talking! Okay, okay, so over half the bar patrons have beards (bar owners included), but even residents of the ‘burg need to get wasted and take their tops off every now and then. With dozens of whiskeys and scotches available for your sipping pleasure, ending the night on top of the bar seems a more-than-likely outcome. Luckily, Whiskey Brooklyn’s team has done this before (Whiskey Town, Whiskey Tavern) and they know exactly what you need when you’ve been, ahem, over-served—a Bag O’ Bacon ($5), of course.
