Ditch your tie, untuck your shirt, and tell your significant other you’ll be home late: It’s guys’ night! And what better place to chill (hold the Netflix!) with your best buds than in Williamsburg, the endlessly cool epicenter of Brooklyn?
SHOP: For Fly Hats at Goorin Bros.
Walk Williamsburg in style with the help of this original hatmaker, which has been trusted with fitting heads of all shapes, sizes, and genders with statement fedoras and brimmed bowlers since 1895. 181 Bedford Avenue
EAT: A Hearty Steak Dinner at St. Anselm
The chefs at Brooklyn staple St. Anselm cook their steaks in an open kitchen, so you and your beef-loving bros can watch your meat reach its perfect char. Get the trademark dish, a butter-slathered hanger cut they call the Butcher’s Steak. 355 Metropolitan Avenue
DO: Catch Some Tunes at Baby’s All Right
In a town taken over by Ticketmaster, it’s always refreshing to spend a night at an intimate venue with indie acts on the cusp of success. Even if there’s not a concert or comedy showcase happening, you and your comrades can at least rely on cheap frozen cocktails. 146 Broadway
DRINK: Stiff Whiskey Pours at Noorman’s Kil
Post-concert tipples are recommended, and the best place to get them is the brick-and-wood–adorned Noorman’s Kil. It’s hard to go wrong when choosing something from its 400-strong whiskey list. 609 Grand Street
