New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
This business is temporarily closed. Check their website for updates. Williamsburg boozers can take a break from the nabe's beer-and-shot dens at this breezy Central American–inspired drinkery. Owner Leif Huckman, previously the beverage director at Goat Town, sourced talent for the spot through his old employer, bringing on former chef Jessica Wilson (also a vet of Prune and A Voce) for the bar snacks, and Brooklyn outfit hOmE (Elsa, Paulie Gee's) to design the space. A vaulted cream ceiling, weathered-pine plank floors and blue-and-white-tiled stools lend a Spanish Colonial vibe to the bright space. Take a seat at the poured-concrete bar and choose from a rum-driven menu of ten tipples, including the Cuba Libre, Brancolada (Branca Menta, Appleton rum, coconut cream, pineapple and orange juices) and the Artichoke Hold (Cynar, St.-Germain, Smith and Cross rum, lime, orgeat), all created by bar manager Jeremy Oertel (Dram, Mayahuel). To eat, find tropical bites, such as chicken chicharróns, oxtail-jam-stuffed avocados seared à la plancha and a smoked pig's-face terrine with dates. On the weekends, DJs—like Benny Lowe of dance-pop outfit 33Hz—hit the decks.
