This heavily wood-paneled bar on the South side of Williamsburg features a thoughtfully-curated, constantly-changing drink menu and knowledgeable bartenders. Dram's cocktail list features flavorful house specialties that typically incorporate an unusual ingredient or creative combination while showing respect for the classic recipes. Additionally, members of the stylish clientele often just name a spirit and have the mixologists take it from there. During rush hour, the smallish space fills up, but the bartenders still take time to detail the ingredients in those custom orders for the curious tipplers. If liquor's not your thing, Dram offers 8 craft beers on tap (mostly American) and even more in the bottle (mostly European) that represent a variety of style and region. Crunchy, cheesy bar snacks pop up from time to time, and while you pay for the impressive, elaborate selection, Dram is much cozier and laid back than the similarly astute cocktail lounges in Manhattan. --Alex Spoto
