Gents who enjoy bow ties and other dapper garb (and we know there are plenty of you in Brooklyn) might want to toddle down to Way Station. The Doctor Who–themed Steampunk-Victorian bar opened its doors (and its TARDIS bathroom) last night, and owner Andy Heidel reports that more than 80 people stopped by to toast the brand-new boîte; you can do the same from 4 p.m. till 2 a.m. during the week, and till 4 a.m. on weekends. House-specialty cocktails include the Maker's- and SoCo-laced Rocky Mountain Mother @#$*er — it might be strong, but we promise it won't kill any brain cells.
