Left Hand Path is a neighborhood bar in Bushwick, and feels kind of like a cross between a boat and a cabin inside. It’s nicer than a dive bar (you can get a cocktail here), but we also wouldn’t say it’s fancy. This is the sort of place where you grab a drink with a friend on a Wednesday. There’s a backyard, so it’s great for when you want to drink outside. And if you get hungry, they have different toasts and grilled cheese until 2am.
