Help! Drinks near Brooklyn Bridge Marriott?
Short and sweet: Out-of-the-blue friends arriving at 7pm (3.5 hours). Where's a good place to grab a drink near where they're staying (the Brooklyn Bridge Marriott)? I was thinking about the River Cafe, but maybe that's too far/too crowded/not as good as X, Y or Z?
you can conceivably walk to atlantic...there you have brazen head which is a decent scotch and beer bar, pete's ale house which is an amazing scotch and beer bar, or there's last exit across the street.
if you care to go towards dumbo, i like drinking outside at five front in the back garden...or superfine which rules for drinks.
