We're gonna let you in on a little secret; the real way of telling whether you're a true New Yorker has nothing to do with your pizza preferences.

The calling card of the quote-unquote "true New Yorker" basically means you go batsh*t over the idea of going to a speakeasy. We don't know why they're so appealing. It's probably how exclusive they seem, even though if we're talking about it on the internet, how secret could it be, but WHATEVER.

You've probably checked out the oh-so SUPER SECRET bar disguised as a hardware store in Queens already, but what if we told you there’s a secret bar hidden behind a deli a la 1920s style in Brooklyn?

Ah, one step closer to living out our dreams of being in a real life noir film.

Felipe Mendez, owner of La Superior, is expanding on his Cerveceria Havemeyer restaurant in Williamsburg next week. 

But it’s where he’s opening up his new space that makes it all the more appealing.

According to Gothamist, the secret bar will be hidden inside the deli behind a freezer door. For special access, you'll have to call to make a reservation for the intimate space. Very exclusive!


The room will feature a curved wood ceiling that's supposed to maximize the acoustics, a trait Mendez plans to capitalize on.

Mendez, being a music freak, will be booking both DJs and live performers to soundtrack the bar. A musician himself and DJ, he regularly appears at The Lot radio and reportedly owns about 15,000 vinyl records. 

Agave-based spirits are the focus of the bar program, with ceviches and other small dishes to eat. Ceviche is awesome, so we're psyched.


Definitely give the ‘secret’ bar a stop at 149 Havemeyer Street, Williamsburg this weekend and tell us about the ceviches!
