Time Out NY Announces Rebar as 2007 Best New Bar

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-factory’s mezzanine. Past the handwrought gate and stained-glass windows, the tulip chandeliers’ orange glow illuminates 15 taps dispensing potent American microbrews (Bear Republic’s Red Rocket, Sixpoint’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)

Along with the award, Rebar has relaunched their new website at rebarnyc.com
