Northern Territory is an Australian bar that has a spacious roof with views of Manhattan. The only catch is that it’s in Greenpoint, and most people don’t think very highly of the G train. But if you’re willing to head over (the G isn’t that bad), you’ll be rewarded with one of the best casual outdoor drinking spots in Brooklyn. They also serve brunch and dinner, and there’s room for all your friends.
