South 4th Bar and Cafe
90 South 4th Street
What it is: A neighborhood bar (in Williamsburg!) that opens early and closes late, and is the perfect place to get some work done and get a buzz.
Why we love it: The spacious back room makes it perfect for meetings if you don’t have an office, so it’s become the unofficial Brokelyn headquarters at this point. Free wifi and a 7am opening hour mean you can make it your office, lunch spot and post-work drinks spot without ever leaving. If you’re feeling a little sluggish after a couple beers, just get a coffee, it’s strong and tasty. Plus the bar is dog friendly!
Who to bring: Someone who can use a pick-me-up after brunch or day drinking. Someone who wants to start day drinking particularly early. People who don’t believe there’s such a thing as a neighborhood bar in Williamsburg.
What to order: They have a good cast of 12 taps that change seasonally and the occasional cask beer, but don’t pass up the ice chest behind the bar which contains $3 cans of Snapperhead IPA and Pork Slap.
South 4th fun fact: The bar not only has a weekly Tuesday movie night (and are open to suggestions!), but they also have a large collection of board games, including Trivial Pursuit, Star Wars Monopoly and Settlers of Catan.
