Under Bars in Cobble Hill
61 Bergen Street b/w Boerum Pl and Smith Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201
61 Local celebrated their official opening this weekend, and the crowds turned out. Plaid clad twenty-somethings sipping pints swarmed communal tables, while others fought for elbowroom at the bar. This Cobble Hill “public house” serves an impressive selection of drafts sourced exclusively from New York State brewing companies - the likes of which include Captain Lawrence, Barrier, and Ommegang - as well as wine on tap and a Red Ginger Root drink from Kombucha Brooklyn brewed with fermented tea and sugar. For late night munchies, the bar serves a changing menu of charcuterie and cheese plates replete with garni like Chris’ sweet and spicy peanuts. DIY chandeliers made from water cooler type bottles lit with fairy lights hang from the ceiling, providing the space with a warm glow.
