The Rockwell Place is a cocktail bar in Fort Greene, and it’s perfect for when you want to grab a drink with a friend or a date, but you don’t necessarily need to take a bunch of shots and possibly fall asleep on your subway ride home. It’s a long room with high ceilings and a couple of skylights, and while there isn’t really any standing room, there are plenty of bar seats and little tables where you can sit down and drink a good cocktail. If you need a nice place to spend time before or after you see something at the Barclays Center, keep this in mind.
