For the most part, Magazine just looks like a normal neighborhood bar in Greenpoint. It’s a long room with a jukebox and strings of red lights hanging along the walls, and in the early evening, it’s a great spot for a casual drink with a friend. But if you stop by around 11pm on a weekend, you’ll find a DJ playing vinyl and a big crowd of people who probably consider CDs the new vinyl. It’s a fun place, and drinks are also not that expensive (house cocktails are all $10). Plus, there’s a nice little backyard.

Popina is a tiny, casual restaurant on the Brooklyn waterfront. The food is a mix of Southern and Italian, and they do some great chicken and pasta.
Although they’re known for their libations at Fort Defiance, this restaurant doesn’t feel like one of those super-cool, pretentious cocktail dens that we all know too well. It has the promise of the perfect neighborhood spot that, if we lived in this hood, we’d frequent all the time.
