Hop off the L on Bedford, wander 1.5 blocks and you’re at the beach. Well, you’re still in Brooklyn, but you can literally dig your toes into the sand at Surf Bar. The atmosphere is cozy, with the smell of wax hanging in the air (the ceiling is lined in old boards), sandy floors and driftwood-like walls layered with years of dusty surf memerobilia. If that doesn’t put you in a salty mood, the mesmerizing list of beachy cocktails (we love the coconut mojito) and Shark Attack Chowder will transport you to an island far from Manhattan.
Intrigued? Well, tonight is a good night to venture over, as it’s Brazilian Night! Expect to be warmly welcomed by our Brazilian buddy, once a pro surfer, now a Brooklynite, content with the swell scene at Surf Bar. There will be a live Brazilian band and themed cocktails and bites, starting at 9pm. 139 North 6th Street, Williamsburg.
If salt is not in the air tonight (you can catch Brazilian night next Wednesday), Danny Tamberelli (young Pete of Pete & Pete) will be playing a free show with his band Jounce and Pete Francis of Dispatch at Brooklyn Bowl. Doors at 6, show at 9. See you there.
