Brooklyn Heights Social Club is the bar at the top of 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, and it’s the closest thing you’ll find to a Meatpacking spot on this side of the East River. Drinks start around $20, you might have to get past a doorman get in, and you also might have to wait in line. Once you make it up, however, you can enjoy the view of the Brooklyn Bridge though the floor-to-ceiling windows as well as the very loud music that starts around 7pm. Just know that this place gets crowded and be sure to call ahead to make a reservation if you want to play it safe.
