After years of running a rickety taco truck out of its crowded back patio, The Woods in Williamsburg changed the game with a backyard bar that's slinging island-themed cocktails as well as eats from an actual kitchen operated by Landhaus (we suggest the Maple Bacon Stick, which is famous in its own right). Rotating DJs and live music round out the rest of the weekly night scene, and continuously pique the interest of the young Brooklynite scene.
If you’ve been to the popular indoor-outdoor drinking hole The Woods on a typical weekend, you’ll know that it is for all intents and purposes a straight bar. However, every Wednesday night, the venue is turned over to the queer community for Misster, an all-night-long lesbian dance party with sounds by DJ Amber Valentine. For those feeling the all too familiar midweek woes, this soirée is a great way to get you to the weekend.
