About this experience

Join our Brooklyn Bar Tour, discover the district's soul, try our favorite cool bars and enjoy a local-led introduction to this beautifully boozy borough.

Brooklyn has a long legacy of brewing and drinking beer (other than its other beauties).
You will walk its streets with a friendly local guide to see with your eyes how so much of this area has changed over time, and how much of its atmosphere has stayed the same.
During the tour, we will stop by three of the area’s most authentic watering holes. Firs of all, we will hit the oldest bars in Brooklyn, and a beloved one among NYPD officers. The second will be a charming dive bar famous for its margaritas (the first one is on us!). And the third, a more contemporary manifestation of Brooklyn: A boutique distillery.

This carefully designed Brooklyn bar tour starts in one of the city’s most historic bars, for a bottle of beer and a trip back to the time of prohibition when drinking something in Brooklyn wasn’t actually so easy. Walking to the next spot, a beloved local dive, we will try their margaritas, before exploring one of the neighborhood’s most impressive regeneration projects. The process sociologists call "gentrification" has been a mixed blessing in Brooklyn. Thanks to our local guide, you will learn the pros and cons of the renovation of Brooklin from an insider point of view.

The experience ends in one of our favorite secret places – a new little distillery, freshly opened. We have special authorization from the owners to have a guided tour of the pots, where gin and whiskey are distilled, before hitting the beautiful little bar in front. While your beer & margarita are on us, we will leave the choice (and bill) here to you, although we would highly suggest one of the signature cocktails.

Thanks this Brooklyn bar tour, you will get to know the (social) life of the neighborhood. Do not miss the chance! Explore Brooklin like a local and drink like a local!

All tour attendees need to be 21 years of age or older–ID’s will be verified at our tour stops and those younger than 21 will be unable to enter the bars.
