Fodor's Expert Review Diamond Lil

Greenpoint Cocktail Lounges Fodor's Choice

Locals flock to this low-key neighborhood spot for great, affordable cocktails made by a bartender who trained in the Milk & Honey school, which was developed by the late, legendary Sasha Petraske (the man responsible for New York's speakeasy craze). The sophisticated, art nouveau–inspired design, complete with embossed wallpaper and a beaded lamp, gives the place a warm, Prohibition-era vibe. Settle into one of the forest-green booths and sample tipples like the Frozen Painkiller or the Valparaiso Sour (made with pisco, Campari, lemon, and strawberry).
