Formerly the Pourhouse, Brooklyn's vaguely tragic blue-collar haunt has been overtaken by young professionals and Guitar Heroes filing off the Graham Avenue stop. Dark brick walls, barred windows, and lava-lamp-pink neon light feel reminiscent of a high schooler's basement bedroom—perfect for Legion Bar’s barely-legal patrons who might feel stifled by the more patrician Harefield Road across the street. D.J.’s spin “Surfin' Bird” from a booth in the front room on Saturday, while the backroom stage hosts music, karaoke, comedy, and readings throughout the week. The beers on tap are standard—Stella and Hoegaarden—but like a cool-kid’s parent's well-stocked booze cabinet, Legion offers four varieties of wine, a dozen bourbons, and fourteen scotches.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
