Bar of the Day: Manhattan Inn

by -

This is the latest in our series on the venues featured in Brokelyn Beer Book. With the Northside Festival taking over Williamsburg and Greenpoint this weekend, catch a drink by the piano at Manhattan Inn and get in the mood.

632 Manhattan Ave. between Nassau Ave. and Bedford Ave., North Williamsburg/Greenpoint, 718-383-0885

What it is: A down-played funky or re-mixed elegant bar/restaurant—take your pick. Easy to miss between Polish clothing stores and butchers. A baby grand piano sets the tone.
Why we love it: The charmingly nostalgic schoolroom decor makes us feel cozy, not scolded.
Who to bring: Friends you want to catch up with, first dates, piano enthusiasts, lovers of #2 pencils.
What to order: Chicken wings or pork belly sandwich with one of the mostly-craft-brew beers.
Manhattan Inn fun fact: Chef Justin Farmer, who draws influence from Korea to Russia, gets his herbs from Rooftop Farms.
