Flag-waving whiskey enthusiasts now have a new place to hole up. South Williamsburg drinks den Post Office opened on Feb 15 with an exclusive focus on American tipples. Alla Lapushchik, one of the founders of Death & Company, has collected 30-plus varieties of the brown stuff, with an emphasis on small-batch brands, like Whipper Snapper (Oregon), Redemption (Kentucky), High West (Utah) and local favorite Kings County Distillery. For those who choke at the thought of taking a spirit neat, there’s a small selection of classic cocktails (Manhattans, old-fashioneds), as well as craft beers and wines. Guests can offset the drinks with raw-bar platters, soups (look out for Borscht Fridays) and sandwiches, like chicken liver and bacon with charred onion mustard and frisée on a baguette, from chef Sam Glinn (The Brooklyn Star, Momofuku Ssäm Bar). The 40-seat space—named after the Charles Bukowski novel—salutes its patriotic leanings with vintage eagle-emblazoned wallpaper and light fixtures fashioned out of whiskey decanters.


  1. Is this any affiliation to the DOC wine bar ppl, who have an old post office inspired restaurant (named PT—short for Italy’s PO) just two blocks away?
