New Bar Alert - 108 Bedford Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 11211
I haven;t checked it out yet but it looks kool for skool.
213 N 8th St, Brooklyn (Btwn Roebling Street & Driggs Ave) 718-218-6538 - Supreme Trading is a 8,000 square feet party spot tucked away in Williamsburg. Nice design, varied. DJs play Thursday through Saturday in a back room that also hosts parties. Reportedly has a billiard room and outdoor smoking garden round but I missed them somehow.
St Helen's Cafe
150 Wythe Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211 (Btwn North Seventh Street & North Eighth Street) 718-302-1197 -The St Helen's Cafe is an off the beaten path small wonder fronted by a a stately glass-and-black-wood facade. Serves ok coffee and tea plus beer and wine, to a crowd that knows it's here. Garden in the back lets the arties chill in the summer heat.
L at Bedford Ave
N. 13th and Wythe - Huge super warehouse space opened in 2004 featuring latest club nights and music acts.
Get a taxi there (you can get the subway to Bedford Ave in Brooklyn) but you may find a little trouble finding one back (there's a car service back on Bedford)
North 7th - Great Thai food in smart designed bar. Well worth the starting point before venturing around this great neighborhood.
