Best Places to Sip a Cocktail in NYC

It’s all just wishful drinking at these bars, lounges, and speakeasies

Fort Defiance

Pegu Club bartender and food writer’s establishment defies all structured mealtimes. It’s an eclectic cafe (Counter Culture coffee, egg creams, baked goods), a bar (cocktails inspired by an international adventurer from the ’40s), and a nighttime eatery (small plates, sandwiches, and entrees by former Prune chef Adam Baumgart).

Fort Defiance, 365 Van Brunt Street, Red Hook (347-453-6672 or fortdefiancebrooklyn.com).
