From the same people behind Williamsburg’s Commodore, Bushwick now has its own version of the quirky, part-tiki neo-dive. Paper umbrellas and destination-worthy nachos abound, with a solid canon of generous frozen drinks (the frozen mojito is imperative), and an upstairs space where dancing is encouraged.
