As promised, here's a look at Saint Vitus, the Greenpoint bar that partners from Anella and Matchless hope to open by the end of the week. The sparely appointed, cavernous lair has a bar area in front and a rock-and-roll music venue in back, and the drinks list should please rockers too. There's a Brooklyn Brine pickleback (naturally), four different beer-and-shot combos, a healthy roster of tap and canned beer, and a few classic cocktails. Check out that lineup, plus the menu of buns for snacking, below, and see photos of the space and food in our slideshow.
