Best Bar in Which to Pretend You Are in a Snowy Mountain Lodge (2008)


At Greenpoint's PENCIL FACTORY, on a wintry weekend afternoon, you can relax in the cozy wood-paneled bar, nurse a hot toddy for hours, and admire how the floor-to-ceiling picture windows frame the blustery weather. Other patrons do the crossword, play cards, or read books at the large communal tables—just like the Adirondack living room of your dreams!
