The Diamond is a craft beer/wine bar in Greenpoint that’s best for more low-key drinking outings. Hang on the porch with your dad while getting familiar with the excellent draft options (there’s no liquor), or utilize the shuffleboard for happy hour with your co-workers. If you do happen to be on a date here, you can use the two-seat gondola on the patio to your advantage.
