Best Bar in Which to Save the Planet While Having a Drink (2008)


You'd normally expect an earth-friendly bar to be filled with foul-smelling hippies. But HABANA OUTPOST in Fort Greene is the exception. The bar (and adjoining artisans market) is solar powered, leftover food is composted, alternative plastic and paper products are used, and the juice-bar blender is powered by a bicycle. But plan ahead—they're only open Thursday through Saturday from May through the end of October.
