Today’s news:

Bottle of red, bottle of white

Brooklyn Daily

Brooklyn Heights

Heights residents have a beautiful new space to pick up a bottle or two of a worthy potent potable, thanks to Ben Bohen, Donald Killinger, Maio Martinez and Mike Holloway, owners of Waterfront Wines and Spirits, which opened in One Brooklyn Bridge Park, along Furman Street, earlier in the month. “We were excited about the new park and wanted to offer small production wines to a corner of the community that doesn’t have a lot of retail,” Bohen told Standing O. So far, business has been brisk (this is a community with its wallets, and goblets, open!). No wonder, Waterfront Wines offers spirits from small artisanal producers. And if you don’t know what you want, the helpful staff helps you make the right choice for the perfect bottle of vino. FYI, Waterfront Wines is right next to Wag’s (a dog spa), so Bohen, a friend to both man and beast, keeps a few doggie treats on hand for those lucky pooches whose owners stop by to pick up a lovely Chablis or Sauvignon blanc to go with dinner. Hint, hint.

Waterfront Wines and Spirits at One Brooklyn Bridge Park [Furman Street at Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 246-5101].
