Bushwick bars are usually either divey or aggressively themed, but Upnorth is neither of those things. It is, however, a Canadian spot, and you might get that sense from how incredibly nice the bartenders are. They’ll be happy to give you an excellent recommendation for a cocktail that you otherwise might not have ordered. There’s also poutine, a few Canadian beers, and some charming ram taxidermy on the walls, but when it comes down to it, Upnorth is just a great simple bar in the middle of Bushwick’s busiest area (right off the Jefferson Avenue L). Come for Happy Hour with a date or some friends and order a burger and some poutine.

Wilfie & Nell
Wilfie & Nell is, first and foremost, a place you come to drink, rather than a place you come to eat. Consider it an added bonus that the bar food you'll likely be eating while standing near a tiny ledge is pretty good.
Not a place for normal dinner time. This is a place for drinking, and a dirty one at that. It just so happens that they serve amazing bar food that will save your life at 1:00am.
