Years of Participation


"back to the basics" is the inspiration behind [bā’sik], a Brooklyn bar that marks the return of the drinking establishment as a "public house" - a relaxing gathering place where friends and neighbors congregate over flowing drinks and pleasant fare. the first venture for industry veterans Derrek Vernon and Jay Zimmerman, bā’sik has featured cocktails and other libations ranging from inexpensive to craft, as well as an uncomplicated menu of "simple and fresh" offerings since its opening in fall of 2011.
