The true glory of the Gate is its proximity to Prospect Park. After playing football for a couple of hours, stumble a few blocks downhill for some reconstructive surgery in the form of a pint, maybe a whiskey (an impressive array of both are available). By the time your body completely stiffens up on you, you'll be numb and happy in the cozy, tavern-like room. Or, split a pitcher with your teammates on the Gate's space-doubling outdoor patio. And feel free to stay deep into the evening if you think you're young enough to fit in with the flirty crew who call the place home.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
