Mood Ring is what would happen if the 1989 art director of Tiger Beat Magazine (with a dark past) decided to open up a bar in Bushwick. It’s an astrological-themed spot with a rotating horoscope cocktail of the month and a hazy dancefloor area in the back that we’ll just call the lazer room. Aside from the drink of the month, they have a list of other cocktails (they’re $11), standard beer, and a few house shots (like the “Bodega,” which is Arizona Iced Tea infused whiskey). It’s a fun and ridiculous spot, and currently very popular amongst people who graduated highschool after 2006.
