You probably aren’t going to travel for 68 Jay Street Bar, but if you live or work in the area, it should be one of your go-to spots for a casual drink. It’s a little space on a corner near the waterfront in Dumbo, and it feels sort of like someone’s living room. There aren’t many actual chairs, but there are plenty of stools and padded benches along the walls.

The Gatehouses at Kings County Distillery
The Gatehouses at Kings County Distillery is an outdoor patio where you can taste flights of whiskey.
Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Westville’s Dumbo spot is just as good for a quick and healthy meal as the other locations, with the added bonus of being close to the Brooklyn Bridge
Suggested by our writers
Freehold is a coffeeshop/workspace by day and a bar by night. They have a great backyard, but expect crowds on peak nights.
