Bars We Love: Sackett to me? Sackett to me!

The Sackett.
Pursue things trivial or otherwise at The Sackett.

661 Sackett St. at Fourth Ave., Park Slope

What 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.

Sackett fun fact: The Sackett was the site of the first-ever official Brokelyn event nearly four years ago, Boggle Night!

    Just like in so many “trendy” articles and photos, looking at this picture you’re led to believe that the only people who matter are those under 30.
