Know Your Bartender: Jaclyn Dima, Cyprus Avenue

 
Since replacing the popular tapas spot Cafe Tapeo in June 2009, cozy Irish pub Cyprus Avenue (on Fifth and Bergen) has become successful in its own right, serving up good beer and traditional Irish fare in a comfortable, relaxed setting. It never seems to get too crowded, and its friendly bartenders, great variety of inexpensive sliders, sports on TV, and solid happy hour have earned it a devoted base of regulars. It's owned by the same folks as the low-key Black Sheep Pub next door, but Cyprus (named after the Van Morrison song), is a lot more charming and open, and the Irish vibe always helps with the craic. 

Cincinnati-raised Jaclyn Dima, who's also a singer-songwriter, can be found behind the bar here on Thursdays and Fridays, from open (5 PM) to close.

HPS: How long have you been a bartender here?

Jaclyn: I've been here since June, so about six months.

HPS: What's your favorite thing about this bar?

Jaclyn: The regulars. They're very cool people. Some have become pretty good friends, actually.

HPS: Can you talk a little about the Happy Hour? 

Jaclyn: Our drafts are four dollars, well drinks are $3.50, and we've added a few specials like ten sliders and a pitcher for $16, which is a great deal. It goes from 5-8 every weekday, and weekends from noon to 8. 

HPS: What's the strangest drink order you've received here?

Jaclyn: This is mostly just a beer place. There's always the people who order the buttery nipple. Seriously, I don't even know what that's about. There's a lot of Guinness drinks too. Like, someone ordered a black and blue, which is Guinness and Blue Moon. Or a black and Sam, which is Guinness and Sam Adams. Guinness and cider too, I do a lot of those.

HPS: If you could have a drink with one person, who would it be?

Jaclyn: I want to have a drink with Katy Perry. I do. I think she's hilarious. Russell Brand can come too, that would be a party. He says he doesn't drink any more, but I think he's full of it.

HPS: Are there any cocktails that you make that you pride yourself on?

Jaclyn: We do have a few with a bunch of berries and gin and deliciousness, but those are really summer specials. I make a mean Bloody Mary, but we don't have any celery salt here.

HPS: What bottle is poured from the most frequently here?

Jaclyn: Jameson and Powers are about even. 

HPS: There aren't too many bottles, but among them which one is poured from the least?

Jaclyn: I don't pour from the Van Gogh espresso vodka ever. And it's the most delicious thing. Just nobody knows about it. But the people that do know about it can drink a whole bottle by themselves. A lot of people just chill and sip it.

HPS: If you weren't tending bar, what other profession could you see yourself in?

Jaclyn: I'm a musician. I bartend in the evenings so I can have my days to write. I'm working on a few projects right now.

Cyprus Avenue, 52 5th Avenue Brooklyn NY 11217. 718-638-1066.
