Ba’sik is a fantastic, laid back bar that’s perfect for those times when you want great drinks, minus the fuss.  It’s located just off the Graham Street L train stop for easy access and boasts a large back patio which is clutch for summertime day drinking.  Ba’sik also offers substantial bar snacks (we’re partial to the Wisconsin Hot Dog with cheese, house mustard & onion) and yummy brunch items like gourmet pop-tarts from Brooklyn’s Magpies.  Sometimes there are tiki-themed nights, and other times there is live music.  Oh, and cocktails are $10 each.  Can you say “steal”?  Highly recommend.
