Congratulations to Rebar, named best new bar of the year by Time Out New York.
Here is what Time Out said:
Like banks offering free toasters, bars nowadays tend to resort to free-pizza and Skee-Ball gimmicks to attract fickle tipplers. But such ploys are superfluous with a drinkery as meticulously conceived as this Dumbo hideaway, carved out from an ex-factoryâ€™s mezzanine. Past the handwrought gate and stained-glass windows, the tulip chandeliersâ€™ orange glow illuminates 15 taps dispensing potent American microbrews (Bear Republicâ€™s Red Rocket, Sixpointâ€™s Bengali Tiger) and rich Belgian beers (Delirium Tremens, Kwak). The quality quaffs extend to by-the-glass organic wines, which paint-flecked artists swig along with asparagus-and-smoked-salmon bocadillos and fried almonds by the fistful. Live jazz and DJs provide the soundtrack after dark, when fuzzy-headed schemes lead to thoughts of purchasing a newly sprouted Dumbo apartment, making ReBar your permanent local.
147 Front St between Jay and Pearl Sts, Dumbo, Brooklyn (718-797-2322)
