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.
