Found: The Outdoor Whiskey Bar That Will (Or Should) Be Your After Work Spot This Summer
Downstairs at street-level from The Distillary at The Tillary Hotel, you can’t help but notice your proximity to the Manhattan Bridge… and not much else. Press on. Trust us. Up a flight of velvety stairs there is a small but gorgeous white marble bar. Outside on the patio there are board games on every picnic table, and string lights above. There is a view of a historic Brooklyn street, somehow. Get the truffle popcorn and a whiskey cocktail, and read on for some first-timer whiskey pointers from the expert behind the bar.
HOW DOES A WHISKEY NOVICE GO ABOUT DRINKING WHISKEY? (ASKING FOR A FRIEND.)
Every culture consumes whiskey differently. In Brazil, you drink it with Coke. In Taiwan, it’s mixed with tea. In France, you drink it neat.
WHAT DO PEOPLE IN BROOKLYN DO?
We serve it however you want. No judgement.
WHAT’S A GOOD STARTER WHISKEY?
Drambuie. It’s a whiskey liqueur.
