Admittedly, Brooklyn Inn is not a dive bar. It’s just a really good neighborhood bar that doesn’t fit into any definite category. The corner space anchoring a stately corner of Boerum Hill is grand, with its massive mirrored back bar, iron grated windows and soaring ceilings. And because it’s embedded deep into a residential neighborhood, the crowd is almost always a patchwork of locals shooting pool or drinking in the middle room amidst candlelight. And though it’s a beer-and-a-shot kind of place, bartender Tom Vaught—Brooklyn Inn’s best kept secret—is a modern-day Jerry Thomas with lots of classic cocktails up his sleeve.
