Freddy's Bar and Backroom, once doomed to be the best-known casualty of the Atlantic Yards debacle, has re-opened in a chummy space just past the southernmost fringe of Park Slope proper. The new spot isn't yet as thoroughly soiled as its precursor, but regulars will have no trouble falling into their usual positions: the new Freddy's has the very same scrappy booths, schizoid video mash-ups, and bar-back jackelope, taxidermied squirrel, and marlin as the old. In fact, the bar itself was transplanted from one locale to the next. To complete the experience, its back room hosts the usual mix of music, comedy nights, and low-key movie screenings. So yes, it's the same Freddy's, with the same well-worn airs. If anything, it’s even more relaxed than before: in adopting the sleepy nabe between South Slope and Sunset Park, it may have grown a bit milder with age.
