I love this place for the well-chosen music and mood, but it's the creatively mixed, killer cocktails that make it a pick. Authentic Brooklyn cool!
AAA Inspector Notes
The team behind Grand Army Bar, one of the best cocktail bars in Brooklyn, has had extensive local success and knows how to capture the borough’s mood and zeitgeist. An array of shellfish platters range from the humble to the grandiosely over-the-top; the shrimp cocktail, ceviche and wide varieties of oysters are well-recommended. Cocktails, people-watching, and a well-chosen musical soundtrack are key elements here—they come together to make a truly individual, authentic experience. There are house-made sauces for the oysters that must be tasted and that elevate a platter beyond the typical vinaigrette or Tabasco-and-horse-radish norm.
