St. Mazie is where you take someone when you aren’t sure if it’s a date. The place isn’t overwhelmingly romantic, but it’s dark and intimate enough that any chemistry will soon reveal itself. There’s also live music most nights, and that really only increases the odds of your falling in love with whomever you’re shooting whiskey with (and vice versa). But if that isn’t your agenda, you should still come here. It’s a nice, cozy bar in Williamsburg that tends to be the perfect amount of busy (and there’s a restaurant downstairs).
