Lizzie King’s Parlor – A Local Gastro Gem Worth A Visit

It’s officially Fall, but if you’re not ready to hibernate on the couch, that’s okay. In fact, many people aren’t and are still enjoying the outdoors during cooler evenings, brunch, and fantastic happy hours. In fact, a cool new bar which has all the above is Lizzie King’s Parlor in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Named after the illustrious, Elizabeth (Lizzie) Lloyd King,  who lived in the Park Slope area in 1873. She gained notoriety as a fugitive on the run, accused of murdering her husband.

With such a scandalous nod toward a sensational story, Lizzie King’s Parlor reflects light touches of the dark tale, in a low-key, comfortable setting serving locally sources food and craft beverages. The interior was designed and hand-furnished by the owners, and the venue displays artful stokes of talented neighborhood artists. Such artistry is displayed on the front window design, back patio mural and throughout the main parlor. 

If you’re looking to escape the early onset chill, grab a drink at the custom bar which features mostly Brooklyn and New York State beers, spirits and wine. The seasonal craft sips are super palatable and ascetically pleasing. When there, try the smokey, Mezcal-based ‘Unhappily Ever After’ with hellfire habanero shrubs and passion fruit, or the slightly more mellow ‘Woman-hunt’ with bourbon, ginger and strawberry (pictured in below photo gallery). Pair these with the bar bites like the hearty burger with juicy red onions and toasted buttery bun or even the savory chicken sandwich – all of which are supplied by neighboring butcher, Fleishers Craft Butchery. Plan a visit anytime, especially when a live local band is featured, which is pretty often during the week.
