Brooklyn Social

Keep your eyes open, because you might miss it. And believe me, you won’t want to. To get your cocktail or beverage fix in a dimly lit, yet inviting, bar, look out for Brooklyn Social in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

At 335 Smith Street, you’ll find an all black facade, tiny slits for windows and an unassuming, recessed door. What started out years ago as a Sicilian men’s social club, is now open to “non-members”, serving up some really great, potent drinks. Through the first room, toward the back, you’ll walk into another smaller room with a private couch and pool table. Just past that, walk out and enjoy the outdoor patio on a nice night. How amazing do all of these things sound?

For my drink, I ordered the Neapolitan (citron vodka, lemon, Italian triple sec, pomegranate juice). This was great. The drink is a little sweet, with a great citrusy quality and nice subtle tartness from the pomegranate. You won’t even notice how pleasantly strong it is until you’re about half way through. Cheers. 

The Shorts:
