323 Graham Ave.
(between Metropolitan Ave and Devoe)

basik 2What it is: ba’sik is a charming, simple spot that aspires to be the ideal neighborhood bar. The decor is clean and rustic but the space still feels relaxing and friendly.

Why we love it: ba’sik is a change of pace from some of the more eccentric bars that populate Williamsburg. The bar is open and well-lit and features a quaint garden area in the back. ba’sik keeps regulars returning with its free Sunday jazz jam sessions.

Who to bring: The yard is a great spot to bring a group out for drinks and sunshine. Musicians will especially love the live music here.

What to order: ba’sik always carries three each of draft, can, and bottle options, with drafts tending to be from local breweries. The brunch menu includes ba’sik mac n cheese, magpies, artisanal pop tarts and more standard fare like waffles and omelettes.

Fun fact: The bar features a 19th century butcher block bar that was salvaged from an abandoned packaging plant.—Camille Lawhead
