674 Manhattan Ave.,
Greenpoint, New York, NY 11222
Tucked away on Manhattan Avenue just up the street from Five Leaves, the 900-square-foot establishment (formerly Stones Tavern) will provide twelve craft beers, including $4 Narragansett Lager. The cocktail menu — designed by Heather Ash, head bartender from Allswell in Willamsburg and Rene Hidalgo, bartender from Lantern’s Keep — features six drinks, including the Storm Warning (Smith & Cross, Cynar, ginger, lime, club soda, Peychaud’s Bitters). Later this summer, Sreekumar and his co-owner Aaron Manheim will nearly double the size of the nightspot by opening their 800-square-foot backyard.
Time Out Says:
Get craft cocktails at this handsome Greenpoint drinkery, appointed with a stately mahogany wood bar, gunmetal-black pressed-tin ceiling and Victorian-style patterned wallpaper. The drinks list features creative tipples like the Backhand (rye, coffee liqueur, Campari) and the That’s My Word (gin, St.-Germain, yellow Chartreuse, lime). But beer hounds can tilt back a Sixpoint Righteous Rye, Brooklyn Summer Ale or can of Tecate.
