What it is: An elegant and casual hideaway (think candlelight and frozen pizzas) nestled between the Graham Ave. and Grand St. L train stations.

Why we love it: Matt Torrey’s balances quieting down and turning up among the late 20s to mid-30s set in East Williamsburg and Bushwick. Whether you’re in the mood for a slow-sipped cocktail or a few frothy pints, Matt Torrey’s has your back.

The bar boasts 15 New York State craft beers on tap along with a variety of bottles and cans, food until 3am (meat and cheese plates, pressed sandwiches) and sleek decor that’s good for a meeting, a date or a group outing. Wooden accents lend to the sophisticated atmosphere, with floors made of antique oak reclaimed from a 100-year-old Virginia farm house and floor-to-ceiling windows providing a corner view of the street where no one’s looking in.

What to order: On tap, you’re likely golden with a Sixpoint, Empire or Southern Tier–the draft selection features new brews from around the state, so you’ll want to check the menu for the latest offerings. A worldly bottle selection includes several Hitachino ales hailing from Ibaraki, Japan and Innis & Gunn’s Oak-Aged Ale from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Regular tip: The bar serves free bagels on Saturdays and Sundays, along with $4 bloody Mary’s and mimosas.
