The next time you don’t know exactly how big your group will be, when they’ll arrive, how late they’ll stay, or how hungry they’ll be, head to Ainslie. This converted warehouse near the Lorimer L stop in Williamsburg has two bars, an outdoor patio, tons of tables, and a DJ booth - and that’s just the first floor. The second looks like a ski lodge in Aspen, and above that, there’s a big open-air rooftop (which isn’t open quite yet). But the best part is that if you wander in with half the people in McCarren Park, you’ll find food that’s better than anything you’d expect from places you typically reserve for Happy Hour or day drinking.
