Neighborhood spotlights are a local recommendation with some quick info for must-try spots in our area.


If you’re feeling a little fancy and are craving a cocktail, Mayflower is the speakeasy-style neighborhood spot to indulge. It’s a tiny cocktail bar tucked behind Aita on Greene Avenue in Clinton Hill with seasonal cocktails, wine, and beer. We ordered a few drinks and slipped into a corner table to sip our mixologist’s magic. While there were just a few people there during our visit on a Sunday evening, we’re told it can get pretty crowded on more popular nights.


Recommendations: Any of their seasonal cocktails! If you’re having a tough time deciding, ask the bartender for advice.

Cost: Cocktails are ~$12, select beer and wine available as well for slightly less.

Where: Turn the corner at 132 Greene Ave. on Waverly to find The Mayflower behind Aita - walk from Our Place in 15 minutes!
