TROOST – Coffee by day, cocktails by night

I love TROOST because it’s a classic neighborhood bar. Everything about it represents the character of Greenpoint, once a working-class Brooklyn neighborhood, now a haven for hipsters seeking refuge from their office jobs in Manhattan.

Head here for the warm and welcoming vibe. No matter the season, everything from the friendly bartenders to the weathered floorboards that creek to the cozy backyard garden make it the perfect spot to grab a coffee or a cocktail. During the day, it’s a comfy coffee shop where locals bring their laptops to enjoy a cup of La Colombe coffee and free Wi-Fi. At night, the internet is switched off, the lights are dimmed and the spot becomes a low-key cocktail bar.

Special tip: TROOST is a great spot to catch live performances by local Brooklyn bands. One of my favorite nights here was listening to a group do percussion covers of Stevie Nicks’ greatest hits with Daniela D’Avanzo, a spotter visiting from Rome.
