The more the merrier! Data recently released showed that more bars were opened in Williamsburg and Chelsea than any other neighborhood in New York City in 2016. The State Liquor Authority awarded 22 new full liquor licenses this year to Williamsburg's 11211 zip code.
2016 saw multiple new bars being added on Grand Street, away from the already very popular Bedford Avenue. This is the 2nd consecutive year that Williamsburg topped the list of new liquor licenses, a winning stat we can truly get behind.
