What it is: The Double Windsor is a mainstay in South Brooklyn, as famous for its beer selection (and growlers) as it is for its burgers. With a gorgeous long bar, spacious interior and table sections, it’s long been a great spot for anyone grabbing a drink after some quality time spent in Prospect Park, whether after a Celebrate Brooklyn concert or aninformal frisbee game in the Long Meadow.
Why we love it: Though it doesn’t have an outdoor area, there’s something that says “summer” about Double Windsor. It could be all those trips to try any of the 14 rotating craft beers on tap, or to grab some food after a concert at the bandshell, or Prospect Park in spitting distance from the front door. This is the kind of place you head over to for a couple rounds after a hard run with Team in Training, or just to get your day drink on, knowing you won’t have any issues getting through their food menu.
Who to bring: Anyone who made it down to the park to hang with you beforehand. Or really, any fun group of friends who may not all know each other. The Double Windsor has a fun “the more the merrier” vibe to it with a combination of ample long, communal tables with wait service and a good standing area.
What to order: The burger. It has a reputation that precedes it as just one of the more solid burgers in the area. And of course, the sriracha honey chicken wings are probably not a bad bet.
Fun fact: Double Windsor has a trivia night the first Monday of every month, with “boozy” prizes. Given that that they’re a bar, that’s a good sign you have a chance to try some of their quality beers for free. -Eric Silver
