For almost 80 years, Smith’s Tavern has survived with little fanfare on Park Slope’s Fifth Avenue. The bar is a no-frills, cheap-beer-out-of-a-cold-mug kind of place—the kind that attracts regulars who stay for years, if not decades. That doesn’t mean it’s completely opposed to change: In the fall of 2000, Smith’s underwent a renovation, with implicit hopes of attracting some of the younger neighborhood drinkers. The results maintain the beloved classic tavern feel, with faux-stone archways and wood-paneled arched ceilings with a fresh polish. There are now fifteen beers on tap and eight TVs tuned to sports and Sunday’s NFL package. For years, Smith’s signature sandwich board promised $1.75 mugs of cold Bud all day beginning at 8am. The price has now risen—to $3.50.
