Two new bars have opened close to the Greenpoint Ave. G stop in Greenpoint. Sama Street is a new cocktail bar on Manhattan Ave. with small plates. More from Greenpoint Post:

A new Asian-inspired cocktail lounge opened last week on Manhattan Avenue.

Sama Street, located at 988 Manhattan Ave. in north Greenpoint, is the brainchild of two longtime friends, Avi Singh and Rishi Rajpal.

The bar, which opened last Monday, serves up handcrafted cocktails infused with Asian ingredients and small pan-Asian plates… On the drinks menu is wine, four different Asian beers and 15 cocktails that all feature Asian ingredients. The Eastern Medicine cocktail utilizes Japanese whiskey, yuzu and black cardamom, while the Slow Boat to China, a Thai rum-based drink, features mint, pandan and coconut…

The small dishes on the food menu are influenced by the plates Rajpal and Singh ate during their travels growing up. On offer are spicy Thai prawns, green papaya salad, curried shishito peppers, and much more.

We still miss Shayz Lounge, which closed earlier this year. A new bar called Magazine has opened in its place.

Magazine’s founding partners include Matt Wang (Candy Bar in Detroit), Julian Brizzi (Rucola, Grand Army, Celestine), and John Russell, a co-founder of Real Estate Fine Art. “Disco” David Discavage runs the bar program (formerly of Hotel Delmano, Mr. Fong’s, Primo’s), and will focus on mixed and frozen drinks.

Along with a customized jukebox, DJ’s will be spinning tunes on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
