This is a little cocktail bar in Prospect Heights with big windows and a clean, attractive interior. It’s nice and calm in the early evening and gets livelier later on. Weekends, you’ll find a young crowd and a DJ. It feels a clubhouse (at least for this part of the neighborhood) and it’s a good place to meet people, if that’s what you’re after.

Popina is a tiny, casual restaurant on the Brooklyn waterfront. The food is a mix of Southern and Italian, and they do some great chicken and pasta.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.
