Williamsburg

richlane 3What it is: Wood-paneled, industrial-ish, and light-filled, Richlane is where you go to get away from the Bedford strip, saddle up to wood bar and listen to some good tunes.

Why we love it: Richlane is situated in a Bermuda Triangle of sorts: east of the Bedford strip, south of Greenpoint and north of the Lorimer stop on the L. You’ll still find everything you’d expect from a Williamsburg bar, like vintage decor, a retro refrigerator, and a cloud of smokers out front, but somehow Richlane manages to be a friendly neighborhood bar with a minimal amount of too-coolness.

Who to bring: Bring a date and impress them with your picks from jukebox. If it doesn’t go well, ditch em and flirt with the bartender.

What to order: Much of the beer and wine is from New York, but it has expanded beyond into craft and familiar beers and wine on tap.

Fun fact: The name Richlane pays tribute to the name of the previous name of Richardson St., which was Richlane..—Thea Blise
