Three Reasons Why 61 Local Should be Your New After Work Spot

1. It’s big. There is usually plenty of room to hunker down at one of the huge wooden tables, order an Interboro IPA or a Dona Chai chai latte — both produced locally, hence the name of the place — and rehash the day’s events with your colleagues.

2. It’s delicious. The owners behind the bar-slash-coffee shop devoted a lot of energy into everything on the menu, and that much is obvious, especially when you take a bite of that insanely good pretzel.

3. It’s a good time. Most nights you’ll walk in the Bergen Street spot to find live music or a comedy open mic, which is especially nice when you don’t feel like rehashing the day’s events with your colleagues.
