There used to be a bar in Williamsburg called Battery Harris that had a big backyard and an inside area where you could dance on weekends. Now, there’s a new bar called The Breakers in the same space, and it basically just feels like Battery Harris got a new paint job and some skateboards on the walls. They serve food like some very large fish tacos and a great fried chicken sandwich, so stop by for a snack in the big backyard, or come for a late-night dance party.
