Brooklyn – multiple locations
594 Union Ave at North 11th St, Williamsburg
Brooklyn, NY 11211
Royal Oak is one of those dimly lit Brooklyn bars leftover from a classier era—or meticulously made over to look like one, at least. With its tiled floors, leather banquettes and gorgeous brocade wallpaper, this place oozes speakeasy charm. But while the look is old, the scene is definitely young. On weekends, the stylishly unkempt twentysomethings of Williamsburg descend upon the premises, jostling for space in front of the DJ booth. So be sure to look good when you come—but don't look like you've tried too hard.
