G at Greenpoint Ave.
This venue is closed.
Only in Greenpoint could you find the fashionista scene located next to the Polish meat store. Created by the same crew who masterminded the hipster-chic boutique chain Oak, the space has successfully lured Manhattan scenesters out to Greenpoint, but on typical nights you’ll find a smattering of locals. The interior lives up to the name—black mirrored tables, black leather banquettes, pretty boy bartenders in black tees, and a tin roof painted … yeah, you get it. The bar is long enough to avoid drunken encounters with struggling goth models, and a sizeable back garden offers an escape from the deep chasm of blackness within. There’s a decent beer selection, from Radeberger to Lagunitas IPA, and a Meatpacking-esque rotating cocktail list—though beware the model/bartenders who have little to no experience mixing a drink.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
