There are no mirrors in Mirrors — yet. The Clinton Hill after-hours spot relies on its clientele for a self-portrait.

“The bar,” said owner Michelle Allen (pictured), who lives nearby, “is a reflection of what the neighborhood is and is becoming.”

Allen is referring to the influx of races and cultures that now, more frequently, populate the area. Watching her converse with every customer who enters, one would think that Mirrors has been around for quite some time, but it’s just five months old. And, Allen is off to a “Grand” start, with karaoke Wednesdays and DJ Fridays.

After two years of battling landmark districting and permit issues, the space has finally “become a part of the community,” Allen told GO Brooklyn. We’ll toast to that — with a glass of their house-made white or red sangria.

Mirrors is located at 284 Grand Ave. at Lafayette Avenue in Clinton Hill. For more information, call (718) 622-2277.
