The Diamond has so much going on that it’s easy to forget that it doesn’t actually have a full bar. When the New Yorker wrote about the Greenpoint fixture’s loyal following,” it mentioned the beer bar’s shuffleboard games, slot-car races, Mario Kart tournaments, film nights, and more. But one thing it hasn’t had until now is hard likker.
That changes on Valentine’s Day. “The spirits program will be small with just one or two choices for each type of liquor,” reads an email from the bar. “We are very happy to say our program features 100% independent producers, most of whom practice sustainable farming and fair labor practices whenever possible.”
The drinks list will focus on classics with the addition of a few house specials.
If only for the purposes of alliteration, lovers will probably want to stick to shuffleboard and champagne on V-Day, but it’s good to know the hard stuff is there when you need it.
