Went in for a quick happy hour before a book signing event. Staff was very helpful and offered some great suggestions. Found my new fav! We'll definitely be back!

Great neighborhood bar in a former post office. Extensive list of whiskies and bourbons (the Widow Jane bourbon and rye are both excellent). The staff were all very friendly and helpful in making drink selections. Have not tried the food yet, have visited twice for drinks and enjoyed both visits very much. Definitely worth a stop if you are staying... More

My friends and I were staying in Brooklyn nearby the Post Office and were glad we decided to venture in for drinks and a bite. Excellent grilled cheese sandwiches and service!

Happened upon this place... Drinks were expensive but well executed. Ate their seasonal arugula salad which was amazing and also ordered the cheese and meat plate which was not bad .. A little pricey for what you got bit tasty nonetheless. We got a table right by the window and was a lovely way to spend the evening

Certainly not my first whiskey but definitely my first Manhattan! Excellent. Small and cozy. Great if you're in the area looking for whiskey options

Delicious pulled pork sandwich. Good drink selection. Cool atmosphere and music. Food menu selection is pretty sparse but quality was excellent

The Post Office is amazing! The restaurant is cozy and intellectual with a simple yet delicious menu. The bartenders and servers are a true pleasure. I come here about 2 - 3 times a week for the whiskey drinks and the best bacon grilled cheese on the planet! Highly suggest trying this place!

There's a focus on whiskey (especially bourbon), with an excellent variety of less common labels. But the big surprise is the refined menu. Don't expect typical bar food here -- not typical bar food offerrings and not typical bar food quality. It's also decorated thoughtfully and the owner/manager clearly put a lot of love into this place (including a consistently... More
