61 Local Keeps It Local In Boerum Hill
From the craft brews to the vintages to the freshly-baked bread and cheese, 61 Local keeps it local. This former carriage house puts a primacy on celebrating the neighborhood community and its creativity, which is evident in the friendliness of the staff and the art on the walls. Sample a few of their 30+ beers on tap, nosh on the Mediterranean board, and make friends with the regulars. Make sure you check out their event calendar—they regularly host cool things like an upstate foraging tour and wild food lunch, so don’t miss out.
For the second half of the night, show some love to the local ice cream shops in the area. Van Leeuwen Ice Cream is good all year long, in our opinion, and we think it makes for the perfect close to this low-key night out in Boerum Hill.
