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 Shock Top Belgian White—but like a cool-kid’s parent's well-stocked booze cabinet, Legion offers four varieties of wine, eight bourbons, and fourteen scotches.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
