Diner Reviews
  • "Celebrated my birthday here and it being my first time, I made reservations to ensure a table. This place is a hidden gem. The crowd is young professionals and up. Wasn't too fond of the Casino cocktail but I did ask my cocktail waiter to surprise me with something fruity and sweet. He came back with a Daquiri cocktail which was excellent! The Communist cocktail was as superb! Will be definitely coming back whenever I visit San Antonio!"

  • "There was a great ambience right as soon as you walked into the bar. Waiter was exceptional- each of the cocktails was amazing- taste profiles were as advertised and each layer of flavor revealed itself one by one- not all at once. The food truck outside is a great idea- Tailgate Bistro was outside and the Avocado fries were out of this world. Would recommend for a special occasion or a group function- small and vibrant with great service. Will be back again to experience more of what is the the Brooklynite."

  • "What a fun find. Great bartenders and inventive cocktails, cozy little corners to sit in, lots of craft beer choices too. Poor rating on food only because they don't serve foo. Food trucks out front but we left before they were fired up."

  • "Nice drinks, no food served inside. Different food trucks provide the edibles. Amazing craft cocktails. Each cocktail is hand made with tremendous detail, it does take time to get your drink. Staff is extremely knowlagable so tell them what your in the mood to taste."

  • "Don't expect immediate service. If you happen to show up right after a rush you could be looking at at least a 30 minute wait for drinks. We had reservations and it still took a very long time to be served and had to approach the bar for service. When service did come it was well received and high quality overall. At the end of the night the drinks made up for the wait."

  • "A true handcrafted drink. This establishment doesn't just want your money. They want you to experience the truth behind why liquor was intended. Anyone can mix a drink and charge $9. This places creates an experience and serves up a quality cocktail to go with it. As for the food, I don't believe there is any. "

  • "Stopped into Brooklynite for pre-dinner cocktails. It wasn't vey busy so we had the attention of a great bartender. We told him what we liked and he guided us in what to try. My husband was blown away by the Philly Smash. Interior is Frey chic. We loved the old cartoons showing on the big screens. "

  • "Love the Brooklynite! I've come here often but this is the first time I reserved a table for my birthday celebration. They had my table ready and we got to try there new spring menu. The bartender also made up drinks for us. It's such a great, classy place! I highly recommend this place. Especially if you like original cocktails. There is a lot a gin -based drinks but also a lot of great whiskey-based drinks as well. The bartenders are always friendly as well."

  • "This was my second trip to the Brooklynite. I would say that I enjoyed their summer menu offerings more, but perhaps my sampling of drinks this time around was not as wisely chosen. Everything I tried over the summer was on point. The other night, though, a couple of drinks were a little bit off. Overall, still a great experience and a great place for a pre- or post-date spot. Probably the best cocktail bar in SA, definitely the best that I've had. House cocktails are creative and have yet to have one that did not impress."

  • "This little bar was hard to find and not at all what I expected. My grown up children liked it due to the seating - which was in a little tucked away part of a bigger room and we were seated on love seats. The drinks menu is pretty specfic and they don't carry many wines or beers that you'd find in a regular drinking or eating establishment. The greeter was very nice and called a cab for us. The rest of the staff was nice and friendly. If you have a group of friends who like to talk and drink, this may be just the place for you. It just wasn't what we were looking for."

  • "This was our second visit to Brooklynite. The first was wonderful. Sadly, at this second visit, we were embarrassed to have brought friends to an establishment with such poor service. The staff seemed to have no interest in their customers or their jobs. A 5-minute wait at door (with no host to seat us as the signage required), and a 25-minute wait at table for service (just to take our order). We more or less had to beg for service. There are many options in San Antonio for a good cocktail. I thought that Brooklynite was a great find for pre-dinner conversation and cocktails (made well). The quality of the drinks is high, but the appalling service makes this place a no-go for us in the future."

  • "Brooklynite is a great addition to the San Antonio lounge scene. The delicately-made cocktails were delicious, and the atmosphere was perfect for consuming them. The friendly staff members were always available for service or questions. We had a wonderful evening at Brooklynite, and I'll be looking forward to trying more of their offerings as I work through the cocktail menu."

  • "The Brooklynite serves a variety of classic cocktails plus offers a great wine and beer menu. The dim lighting and great mix of music provides an amazingly relaxing atmosphere throughout the entire bar. The food trucks that work on a rotation out front offer some very interesting and delicious creations. The truffed shrooms and tots from Tapa Tapa were sensational!!"

  • "Excellent cocktails. Loved the Missionary the best! No food ordered. Waited over 15 before drink order taken. Short on staff but very friendly and knowledgeable. I would go back."

  • "Hannah, who greeted us at the front door, was warm and personable. Javi, our server, was terrific and patient with my friend, who was "particular". This place is for cocktail drinkers who want cocktails that are creative and delicious. The atmosphere is elegant and slightly funky. Fun, upscale bar."

  • "My husband and I recently visited Brooklynite on our date night. The bar's atmosphere was fantastic. We were excited to order drinks off the menu and loved most of them. My personal favorite was the Missionary. I am hoping that the drink menu will either get a little longer, or will change periodically. I also would love to see a drink that features lavender! The service was kind (although a tad slow). Fortunately everything else made up for that. We were hoping to have more than one food truck outside, but it must have been a busy night elsewhere. We absolutely plan on visiting Brooklynite again!"

  • "I found this bar when looking for a restaurant. There was an indication on the website that they have a menu. What they neglect to tell you is that it's the menu from the mobile coach parked at the curb just outside the front door. It's only a bar, not a restaurant. The ambience and decorations are eclectic and enjoyable for drinks. I would recommend that their website (or Open Table's reference) state clearly that no food is available, and that this is clearly a bar."

  • "Best drinks ever. Loved the owner and all the time he spent with us. He is an alcohol encyclopedia! It's just a smidge too dark to read menus."
