It’s extremely hard to find a bar in Williamsburg where you can actually have conversation on a Friday night. Burnside happens to be one such place. It just doesn’t seem to ever get too crowded here - which might lead you to believe that it sucks. Not the case. It’s just a very casual cocktail bar where you can grab a table and hang out with friends. Other amenities include a shuffleboard table, a back patio, and burger filled with melted cheese. Plan your next low-key hang here.
