The Richardson is a bar in East Williamsburg that does very good cocktails, and the best part is, it never gets too busy. It attracts a decent crowd, sure, but you never have to wait for the bathroom. Depending on what you’re looking for, that’s either a good or a bad thing. If all you want is a quiet drink, a little bit of privacy, and some good, dark vibes, this place is perfect.
