The Brooklyn Happy Hour

If you’ve already got your tie on, and your seats are saved across the street at Benaroya Hall, The Brooklyn’s cheap drinks and snacks are on your radar. But if you’re headed for the underground transit tunnel en route to the U-District, this chop house isn’t as out of reach as you think (at least between 4 and 6:30 p.m., Sun-Fri and 3 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday). Bombay, Jim Beam, and Bacardi wells are $4, and the oyster du jour is a buck apiece. It may get a little crowded around the bar, and standing-room-only is the norm. But what is a steakhouse today if not a gloried bus stop with affordable martinis and phenomenal finger food? CHRIS KORNELIS
