Yes, it’s noisy. But the energy of the young-skewing bar crowd at this corner brasserie is contagious, what with strong cocktails that outmatch any on the block (with the possible exception of sister bar Liberty Tavern down the street). Subway tiles form a handsome backsplash to the long bar, where ’tenders mix drinks such as My Mom’s Manhattan, with Cointreau and orange-clove bitters. They’re so good it’s easy to bypass the selection of beers—but that’s what tastes best with Alsatian-inspired dishes like mini-frankfurters and pork schnitzel. Insider tip: Too loud? Sunday afternoon, a quieter crew of regulars gathers for afternoon happy hour. Open daily.
Must Try Happy Hour: Monday through Friday from 3 to 7, this boisterous Clarendon brasserie turns out hearty, beer-friendly fare (think Belgian-style mussels, short-rib frankfurters, and an Angus burger) for $10 or less.
