The Emerson is a NY insider’s secret — a great neighborhood bar in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill, decorated with antique mirrors and upscale Walker Evans prints, serving up a selection of local beers and traditional cocktails.
Happy hour is daily, with all drafts $4 from 4 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., plus daily specials, including 2-for-1 whiskey and tequila on Wednesdays and $4 seasonal draft of the week every night 10 p.m. – 1 a.m. This is more lounge than bar — eat before you arrive or after you leave.
The only food on the menu is chips and beef jerky. The Emerson is at 561Myrtle Avenue.
