The Hideout Now Open

December 5, 2007

We heard that The Hideout, a new bar on Adelphi just off Dekalb, is now open.  Has anyone been there yet?

Earlier: Upscale Cocktail Lounge to Open at 262 Adelphi



  1. Hey EBG,
    Had a chance to go to The Hideout last night. Very interesting place. It’s small and cozy with ambient music playing. The owners and bartender were extremely friendly. It’s very pricey. The signature drink is a Poisoned Rose which runs about $28 and is topped with rose petals. No beer and mostly high-end liquors. If you’re looking for an upscale bar to relax and enjoy conversation with a friend, certainly a place to consider.

  2. I also had a chance to stop in last night. And I agree with everything in the previous comment. Great atmosphere. Staff was great. VERY small, but for what it is I think its better that way. Any more than 10 or 20 people in there I think would be too much. It was a bit pricey in my opinion, but they had very high quality drinks. If youre in the mood to relax and have a nice glass of scotch and talk (not yell) with a friend, then I think you’ll like the hideout. However, if you’re more in the mood to pound 15 PBR’s and pretend to dance to bad music, then this is definitely not your spot. I hope it does well… just not TOO well.

  3. My girlfriend and I have been waiting for more than a year for Hideout to open. In all that time grew more and more anxious, worried that the spot would never, ever see the light of day. To our surprise, they finally managed to finish and the two of us went for drinks about a week or so ago. Our experience was Amazing. The decor was surprisingly upscale considering the spot is a converted garage. I must admit, I arrived there after an already long night of drinking so I didn’t pay attention at all to the cost of the drinks (I still have no idea how much I spent that night) but I must admit they were some of the best drinks I’ve had in the city. Hands down. The expertise of the bartenders is easily on par with their more well known counterparts in Manhattan, but their warmth and willingness to talk about the booze and join conversations beats most experiences I’ve had here. It could very well become my favorite watering hole in the city.

  4. Went last night. Agree with above posters. This place is super expensive. 4 drinks cost almost 60 bucks! Beautiful space though.
