There are a great many things to love about the winter months. Chief among them? Sipping on some good whiskey. Here are a few places in Williamsburg and Greenpoint where you can get your fill of quality liquor to warm your bones during the season.
Noorman’s Kil (Williamsburg)
This hip hangout knocks it out of the park with a unique pairing of premium whiskey and grilled cheese sandwiches. Yes, you can basically reconnect with your inner seven-year old while quaffing any of the 400 brands of whiskey the bar has on their menu. The space is elegant without being too pretentious, right down to the sleek mahogany of the bar top.
