What it is:
This rad bar jumped the Bushwick scene in 2013 with their ever-changing, always experimental vibe.

Why we love it: You never know what you will get when you walk into here – but like, in a good way. Perhaps a DJ from a band such as Prince Rama, Vivian Girls and SSion or an obscure B cinema classic like Holy Mountain projected on the back screen. What you do know is that you will get a great time with friendly bartenders. Go there solo or with a group of friends – a clutch bar for Jenga enthusiasts. It also provides many a conversation starter for a date along with two pinball machines to fill in any awkward conversation gaps.

What to Order: They make a rocking dark and stormy with their Crabbies real ginger beer and have a killer, or I guess non-killer, vegetarian comfort food menu. The rotating beer list is curated with local standards and international beers.

Regular tip: The bartenders are all local artists, musicians and promoters that have helped found great things like Bushwig, Klump and Worship Vintage.
