Happy Hour at The JakeWalk in Carroll Gardens

The JakeWalk lets the sun shine in.

If you drop by the JakeWalk in Carroll Gardens on a Monday or Tuesday around five, you can enjoy the first hour of its weekday 5-7 happy hour by yourself. To keep things simple, there's just one deal: $2 off everything. That means that The River, a cocktail of Applejack, white vermouth, Benedictine, and a dash of Angostura bitters, is $7 instead of $9. A glass of Austrian rosé is $8 instead of $10.

The scene...

You know you can trust a staff that takes such pleasure in its work that the slow hours of early evening are spent sampling the goods. On a recent evening, the bartender poured himself two fingers of white wine to taste, followed by a few sips of Madeira. He even tasted the housemade bitters. The heavy, barn-like doors were thrown open to let in the sun, something that might be a little too revealing for grimier bars. But in broad daylight, the JakeWalk is beautiful: dark wood bar, an ornate outsize mirror, bottles neatly lined up on the back bar, fresh tulips on the windowsill. Discounted drinks were paired with a selection of cheeses and a venison sausage sandwich. As customers began filing in and the sun began to set, the large barn-like doors were closed, and the candles lit for the night.
