The Sackett      

661 Sackett St.
(at Fourth Ave.)
Park Slope

 

DSC_0878What it is: An intimate little tavern on the edge of Park Slope with a fine cocktail menu, friendly staff and excellent jukebox.

Why we love it: The owners Michael and Ann are so cool you’ll want to become their third partner. The brick-lined space is a great place to meet your neighbors or catch up with old friends. It’s one of those bars you won’t feel like an outcast if you just want to bring a book and read.

Who to bring: Classy cocktail lovers, craft-beer drinkers, board-game pros (co-owner Ann once had a standing challenge to buy a drink for anyone who could beat her at Boggle).

What to order: Buy some Walker’s crisps in flavors such as prawn cocktail. Order in empanadas from Bogota Latin Bistro; they deliver to the bar. And don’t forget to save a few bucks for the well-curated jukebox.

Fun fact: The Sackett was the site of the first-ever official Brokelyn event way back in 2009, Boggle Night!—Tim Donnelly
