Nestled along Park Slope’s busy Fifth Ave. this honky tonk venture manages to simultaneously stand out and fit in. The low-key, pub-like interior, speckled with pork imagery, taxidermy and beer signs (including a massive Pabst Blue Ribbon poster in the back), belies the extensive whiskey selection that awaits--including several high-end and hard-to-find varieties. Once you take a seat at the bar, however, it’s clear where the owners’ hearts lie: back-lit amber bottles of whiskey and bourbon are displayed behind the bar like trinkets in a prized curio case. Other idiosyncratic specialties include a prodigious selection of canned beers and wine on tap along with a far better-than-average selection of bar food: pulled pork, Chicago-style hot dogs, cheeseburgers, onion dip and chili. Despite the meat-centric vibe, however, one of the best items is the shrimp po’ boy: heaping amounts of crunchy shrimp, lettuce and tomato complemented with tangy, lemon-spiked mayonnaise and crispy, buttered toast, making for a perfect – if not particularly healthy -- dinner (or a second, much later, post-drinking meal). Ultimately, chef Dale Talde & Co. have attempted to create the type of bar where they – and their food industry friends – would “actually want to hang out” and, if the large, whiskey-and-meat-satiated crowds are any indication, it appears they’ve succeeded.
