I first heard about Trophy Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, while enjoying an egg and cheese taco, and 75% champagne, 25% orange juice mimosa, atop of a Bed-Stuy rooftop. All things considered, it was probably one of my oldest friend’s last major gatherings before she moved to the West Coast.
Aside from my one time visit to Huckleberry Bar, I hadn’t spent much time in Williamsburg, but already knew it was dope. After buying and repeatedly watching the first and only season of Gallery Girls on iTunes, I was completely obsessed with Williamsburg (um, random dude getting béchamel sauce on Angela’s outfit at Huckleberry, hello?!), and Trophy Bar did not disappoint.
Admittedly once I got to the bar, I was about half a drink away from wasted, but I still remember the infectious music that encompasses Trophy. A small but mighty space that packs Brooklyn locals and visitors alike, the bar hums with energy and feels like the perfect chill spot for friends – old and new.
