The Rookery is a nice, big bar in Bushwick that serves food all day. We wouldn’t say it’s a “hot spot,” but it isn’t lame either. It’s mostly just a good place to sit down with a big group of people and have a few drinks. Their kitchen is open late too, so feel free to end your night here with a burger.
