New York City-Brooklyn
May 11, 2018
Ask for a Fedora here and barman, Mark Ruffalo-look-alike Ivan, will mix one up in a few seconds, perfectly poured and delivered with a touch of Rat Pack style class. He’ll do an Old Fashioned and a classic Martini too. Which is what is so special about Brooklyn Social. A former Italian men’s social club, its gorgeous art deco interior has been meticulously maintained by the new owners, from the art deco lamps hanging over the curved oak bar, to the sepia-tinted pictures of former club members on the walls. A little garden and a pool table out back are there for folks to chill out in, while a juke box with jazz tunes is in the main section. Nothing beats hanging out at the bar though, tasting those drinks with a little bit of Rat Pack attitude. Pure class.
