24th St. btw 5th Ave. and Broadway

The bar area is the focal point, with the few diners being cordoned off toward the back in another section.  Young crowd of B&T’s that linger for Happy Hour and then leave a more manageable bar in their wake.  A few beers on tap, along with cocktails, are the main fare.  Decent sized space, service is friendly and they manage the crowd well.  Above average drinks at slightly above average prices, taste fine.

South St. btw Pine St. and Maiden Ln.

Another bar taking up residency near the Seaport, and this one is a tale of two cities; half is pure bar, the other is a bar with pizza.  Crowd is business kids with tourists, decent amount of space, nice view of Downtown Brooklyn.  Above average beers at above average prices, taste fine.

William St. btw Broad and St. and Mill Ln.

German themed bar that is here for the business kid that are looking for slightly more beer for just slightly more money.  It’s a bar that stretches through the block, plenty of space, plenty of TV’s, lots of German beer.  Service is friendly, though pretty sure there isn’t one actual German server (not a dig, just funny that they have to wear the “German bar person” uniform).  German beers at average prices, taste fine.

Stone St. btw Hanover Sq. and Coentis Slip

Located beneath The Growler, this small cocktail bar is a quiet respite from the plethora of bars upstairs and outside.  Chatty bartenders, 20’s and 30’s crowd, cocktails at cocktails prices, taste pretty good.

1st Ave. btw 7th and 8th St.

Used to be Lunasa, and the basic difference is more sports on TV and less board games.  Mixed crowd of young and old, plenty of TV’s, plenty of space, not much more to it.  Average and above average beers at average prices, taste alright.

Stanton St. btw Chrystie St. and Bowery

Used to be Stanton Public, and pretty much nothing is too different, though the music selection is more eclectic, and on repeat after about 9 songs, and the crowd is a little more adult.  The yard area is still nice in, case the bar gets too crowded, the service is friendly and chatty, and the crowd is 20’s and 30’s.  Cocktails at cocktail prices, taste fine.
