At Aunt Ginny’s, everyone’s always having too much fun to notice the two people who look like they just met at a DSA meeting getting to third base at a tiny booth in the corner. This dive-adjacent bar in Ridgewood checks all the boxes of a great hang: shot-and-beer specials, pool table, X-Men vs. Street Fighter machine, photo booth, etc. But the main reason we want to plan all of our birthday parties here is the food. I Like Food operates from a tiny window in the back, serving an extensive menu of bar food that ranges from classic to chaotic. Offerings include nachos, fried chicken sandwiches, everything bagel chicken wings, churro french fries, and a pernil-stuffed crunchwrap they call a “crispwrap” for, we assume, legal reasons. Almost all of this food can be made vegan or vegetarian, cementing Aunt Ginny’s crowd-pleaser status.

Abe’s Pagoda

Abe’s Pagoda is a big spot in Bushwick that looks like a cross between a tiki bar and a pirate ship. Stop by on a Saturday, and bring a group.

Three Diamond Door

Three Diamond Door is a go-to bar in Bushwick. They have a happy hour, there’s a nice backyard, and you can dance in the back room on weekends.
