Grand Army is a well-designed bar in Boerum Hill where you can get some serious seafood. They have a very decent raw bar and also serve a full dinner and brunch menu (with a lot of fish and shellfish). Overall, this is a very nice place to grab a drink. There are plenty of seats at the bar, some tables for date night, and the cocktails are excellent.

Socarrat Paella Bar
No bigger than a subway car, Socarrat packs the majority of their patrons on bar stools around a communal table. The idea here is that they do paella the way it's done in Spain, as one big family. In such a small space, keeping the drool inside your mouth while you wait for your food is no easy task.
