The Meatball Shop – Bedford Street

Delicious meatballs, delicious cocktails.  ‘Nuf said.  Available only at the Bedford Street location in Williamsburg, the bar program features a handy chart by which you choose your liquor – whiskey, gin, tequila, rum, vodka or prosecco – and your flavor – such as strawberry & rhubarb or violet & sage Most squares correspond to classic cocktails or derivatives – for example the violet and sage with gin is an Aviation.  They also serve punch by the glass or carafe, a daily Jell-O shot and a whiskey float, so you can indulge your inner kid and your adult at the same time.  Other than that, the location is all you want and have come to expect from the Meatball Shop team, plus a garden out back.

Who: Casual date or group of friends

What: We love the classic Hanky Panky – gin, sweet vermouth & Fernet Branca – which would be gin and Sweet & Bitter in the matrix.  But neither have we been known to turn down alcoholic ice cream….
