King Tai

Crown Heights1095 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY 11216

Named after the Chinese American restaurant that previously occupied the space, this breezy tiki bar brings a taste of mid century Miami to Crown Heights without overdoing it on the kitsch factor: It’s a place where you can enjoy excellent daquiris and not too saccharine frozens, plus a dependable lineup of weekend DJs and rotating Caribbean pop-up food offerings. The space recently underwent a full visual refresh inspired by South Beach Deco, adding eclectic vintage furniture, custom porthole windows, and a handsome antique bar with original marquetry to the ground floor. The main bar area accommodates 37 guests, but if the weather cooperates, another 36 can enjoy their outdoor garden.
