The Whiskey


Our Story

The Whiskey Brooklyn was opened in August 2010 by the brothers George and Justin Ruotolo, and their partner Rob Magill, after another set of brothers, Jamie and John Wiseman, came to them with a subterranean brick-walled cellar. In a forgotten time, it was an old tonic water factory on the north side of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Their philosophy is simple: well-poured drinks, reasonable prices, good music, a comfortable setting, great food and great service. One of the owners is at The Whiskey Brooklyn every night.

Everything you see in the bar — the booths, the bartop, the dj booth, the shuffle board tables, the backbar — was built by hand, by Rick Crisp.

The Whiskey Brooklyn has brother bars in Chinatown (Whiskey Tavern) and The East Village (Whiskey Town). Also, please visit The Whiskey Shop, a curated liquor store with over 150 different whiskies and select spirits right next door.
