Foursquare Tips

  • Non-flippant tip: Amazing cocktails. Awesome bartenders and staff. The Holy Mountain from the winter menu is inspired. Ask for something off-menu for fun and let the bartender surprise you.
  • Try every single cocktail on the menu. (All amazing) Blackout. Forget you even came here and do the same thing two weeks later.
  • My favorite gin bar hands down.
  • Gin Cocktails
  • Get the gin drinks. (They distill their own!) Skip the whiskey.
  • Happy hour is ALL DAY on Mondays. 6-8pm during the rest of the week, and 3-5pm weekends. Cheers.
  • Love The Shanty on a weekend afternoon. Live music, happy hour specials, laid back atmosphere, and Jen is wonderful behind the bar. Best unexpected discovery in a long while!!
  • They distill their own Gin so go for a Gimlet or Martini
  • Get the Gowanus Razor Blade if you're into gin.
  • Whiskey, Absinthe and Champagne.
  • They're aging Rye and are talking about making a "Rockin' Rye" as well. Sounds dee-lish!
  • Fantastic Date Night spot with some of the best cocktails you'll find in the area. They may take a little while, but you can enjoy the view of their distilling operation while you wait.
  • Get the Tot and tonic
  • Get the corpes reviver no. 2
  • This ethical & sustainable local bar is offering a specialty cocktail during Shop Your Values Week! Be sure to ask for it during the Week, May 3rd - 10th. #SYVW
  • Try the Navy Strength Gin
  • Max is awesome! Go with his recommendation! You can't go wrong! Martinez was good. Little on the bitter side (I like sweet cocktails) but still awesome!
  • Chill place to hangout
  • Fantastic bar program made with house gin/whisky or other commercial high-end brands.
  • Rock n rye
