Profile

Ask a car service to take you to "the bar" in Red Hook, and you'll wind up at an unassuming little place by the river, near some railroad tracks that go nowhere. The beatific, Beatniky owner, Sunny, greets you warmly from beneath a mop of gray hair and a portrait of his great-grandfather, who opened the bar in 1890. Since then, the place has gone through various incarnations, as a restaurant and a longshoremen's hangout, but now, says Sunny, "it's just a meeting place for folks—painters, writers, musicians, plumbers—who care about each other so much they don't mind the trip."
