The next time you don’t know exactly how big your group will be, when they’ll arrive, how late they’ll stay, or how hungry they’ll be, head to Ainslie. This converted warehouse near the Lorimer L stop in Williamsburg has two bars, an outdoor patio, tons of tables, and a DJ booth - and that’s just the first floor. The second looks like a ski lodge in Aspen, and above that there’s a big open-air rooftop (which isn’t open quite yet). But the best part is that if you wander in with half the people in McCarren Park, you’ll find food that’s better than anything you’d expect from places you typically reserve for Happy Hour or day drinking. We especially like the juicy burger topped with prosciutto and gorgonzola or a pizza with pancetta and a runny egg. Whether you stick around until the DJ closes the place down at 3am is up to you.
