Voltaire x Brooklyn Inn
Bad news! This plan has expired. Go check out some great new ideas here.
Introducing some Southern American cuisine with French influence into the neighborhood, Voltaire is a bright and inviting new addition to Boerum Hill. The space walks a fine line between European influence and Brooklyn’s industrial flair, with galvanized pipe foot rails, copper accents, and an ornate marble fireplace honoring none other than Voltaire himself. That said, whether you’re chowing down on Jackfruit BBQ or Gumbo Grilled Cheese, the best seat in the house is in the outdoor garden patio.
Next, go from French inspiration to 19th-century German influence at the Brooklyn Inn. Opening all the way back in 1885 (yes, this is one of the oldest bars in Brooklyn), this ornamental, old-school bar is decked out in stark black woodwork, massive ceilings showing off stained glass nods to the past, and a vintage jukebox that surprisingly doesn’t shy away from avant-indie tunes. Elevate tonight’s romantic vibes with a rich dip into history (at a window seat, if you’re lucky).
