There’s an abundance of old world charm to this Brooklyn bar specialising in absinthe and oysters.

There’s an abundance of old world charm to this Brooklyn bar specialising in absinthe and oysters. It’s a simple but handsome space, decked out in dark wood, with a fireplace, and a grand horeshoe-shaped marble bar which juts into the room. There’s a magnificently theatrical, statuesque absinthe fountain topped with a figure of Napoleon which rather dominates the space and you’d be remiss not to give the green stuff a try. There are a large range of absinthes to sample, and an small yet very well thought through list of craft brews and wines available (both by the glass and by the bottles).

The choice seats are at those at the bar where you can watch the oysters being shucked but there are tables out back if you want a little more room. The happy hour here is particularly generous with a dollar-an-oyster offer and prices in general are fair given the standard of what’s on offer making this a more accessible venue than other Williamsburg drinking joints. There’s a charming garden in the back for warmer evenings.
