NFT: Barclays Center advice - cocktails

bigbluehoya : 2/13/2020 1:08 pm
Heading to BK tonight to see the Lumineers with my wife, her sisters and their husbands. 6 of us in total.

Looking for a spot nearby the arena to grab a few drinks. Preferably somewhere with a decent cocktail menu vs just a beer/shots type of joint.

Any suggestions appreciated. I've been to Brooklyn a number of times that I can count on one hand...

Have you seen them before? If not, you're going to love it. They are fantastic live. I'm seeing them in DC at the end of the month.

I've never been to Barclays, so I can't help you there.
Usually for Islander games I'm on the way to

getting blackout at McMahons, but when with the wife and looking for something a little more upscale with cocktails we've always found the Armory on 4th to be great. Sweet Polly is a little bit closer by and should work also. Lizzie Kings was a good time the one time we were there.

Bar Goto just opened about a week ago. Itís on Bergen and Flatbush. Amazing cocktail bar. Also recommend Sweet Polly and Shaka Shaka Tiki.

I live above Barclays so Iíve been just about everywhere in the neighborhood.
For a decent cocktail drink, honestly

The 40/40 club in the arena might be your best bet. Otherwise, Sweet Polly is the only cocktail bar nearby that I know.

Oh, and also, I'll be there tonight, too!
