New York’s only perfect bar is Dynaco in Bed-Stuy. It has everything you could want in a neighborhood spot. It’s ideal for having a birthday party, meeting a friend or two, or sitting alone and reading. It envelops you and lets you relax. It has a fireplace. If you don’t make too big a deal of it, you can bring in a big container of nachos and go to town. And, you know, sometimes it gets kind of busy and loud with attractive people, but only when you’re drunk enough to find that charming and fun (and not so early that it’s annoying). It has a good rotating beer list and nice cocktails (as well as nice cocktail glasses). Plus, it serves cake and has a cool wall that’s made out of speakers.
