Circa Brewing is a big beer hall and brewery in Downtown Brooklyn. The space is big, and clearly the neighborhood needed something like it, because it’s already packed. The beers are pretty good, and they even have shuffleboard. As for the food? Not something you need to be eating. They serve a lot of pizza and some other wood-grilled things, but none of it is very good. If you’re looking for the Brooklyn version of Houston Hall, this is it. But also why are you looking for that?

Lavender Lake could get away with being a just great bar with a large outdoor patio. However, it scores extra points from us for putting some care into curating a small but solid selection of bar snacks and entree sized plates.
