Lavender Lake Bar in Brooklyn NYC
Courtesy of Lavender Lake

This cheerful neighborhood bar takes its seemingly quaint moniker from a tongue-in-cheek nickname for the miry, oil-slicked waters of the nearby Gowanus Canal. There’s a great roster of reasonably-priced beer and wine, inventive cocktails, and solid gastropubby food (the fried brussels sprouts are a fan favorite for a reason), but the real gem is the spacious backyard that makes it ideal for parties, office outings, and other big-group gatherings. Come with a crowd, and don't be dissuaded if there's a hint of chill in the air—the patio fire pit keeps things cozy well into autumn.
