  • Drinking Spots
    Park Slope is packed with pleasant places to enjoy an adult beverage. The Gate is a longstanding neighborhood institution, where patrons favor the outdoor patio in the warmer months. High Dive offers free popcorn, not to mention such amusements as assorted board games and pinball. Speaking of pinball, it's among the draws at Mission Dolores, whose extensive drinks menu includes a rotating cast of drafts from around the world, and Skylark, where you can plop yourself down on a piece of the comfortable, mismatched furniture. In South Slope, there's Freddy's, whose Prospect Heights version was feted as one of the best bars in America. Though it moved here a few years back to make way for the Nets' arena, it has retained its divey charm and still hosts live music and showcases work by up-and-coming artists on its walls. Prospect Bar & Grill isn't trendy but is notable for its good beer menu and friendly Irish bartenders who are always up for a chat. For wine, there's Brookvin, where you can pair vino with small plates, and Slope Cellars, whose knowledgeable staff will help you choose the right bottle to bring home or give as a gift to a lucky drinker.—JZ
