2. The Hidden Pearl, 621 Manhattan Ave.

This hidden cocktail bar in Greenpoint is located at the back of the Japanese restaurant Wanpaku. Unlike most hidden bars that are often dark and dimly lit, this intimate space with room for less than 20 people is painted in a bright white and soothing blue. A visit to The Hidden Pearl will bring you on an “elevated, transportive and stylish cocktail journey in search of tropical Japan.” The menu includes a variety of different craft cocktails with names like Japanese Breakfast, Lost in Kyoto, and the Tokushima Mule. Other beverages and foods on offer include Japanese whisky, sake, shochu, and small plates to nibble on.
