8. Brix & Rye – Greenport, New York
Walking through the former whaling village of Greenport, on the far end of Long Island, it wouldn’t be hard to miss Brix & Rye, located beneath the wildly popular 1943 Pizza Bar, in the basement of a colonial-style house. But downstairs, behind a narrow wooden bar, owner Evan Bucholz holds court, slinging booze-forward cocktails like the Backsliding Presbyterian (bourbon, Campari, lemon, and ginger) to both summer tourists and salty East Enders. When the bar gets crowded, sneak up to the parlor level for people-watching on Main Street and a game of shuffleboard.
PRO TIP: You can order a pie from upstairs (get the Clams Casino) to be delivered to the bar.
