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.
If you're considering River Cafe be aware that they require jackets in the main room. There's a lounge area off to the left but it's not nearly as nice.
