Bar in Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Greenpoint & Bushwick

A mainstay of the Bushwick scene is the industrial-esque Rookery on street-art-lined Troutman Ave. Come for cocktails, craft brews, fusion pub fare (curried-goat shepherd's pies, oxtail sloppy joes), obscure electro-pop and a relaxed vibe. High ceilings give the space an airy feel and the back patio is a great spot, afternoon or evening, in warm weather.
