Jason Furlani, the man who molded the Brooklyn Inn into Boerum Hill’s favorite neighborhood bar, has opened another beer tavern on the semi-desolate Western stretch of Atlantic Avenue past Smith and Court Streets. The Roebling Inn is different from both its sister bar, whose style it emulates, and Magnetic Fields, whose former space it occupies. Gone is the dark, brooding interior, as the new occupants tore out the front wall and replaced it with a giant window façade. They also added two components unheard of in the Brooklyn Inn: televisions and dartboards.The crowd is suddenly less tattooed and more subdued, parents instead of punks. There’s a neo-nostalgic style: dark maroon walls, with black paneling along the base; banker lamps and round, streetlight-style glass orbs; a dark, softwood bar; and sentimental photographs of good-old-days Brooklyn. A portrait of the bar’s namesake, Brooklyn Bridge designer John Roebling, glares sternly over the 11 taps that house local (and nearby) breweries like Kelso, Six Point and Ommegang for $5 a tap (Yuengling and Bud Light go for $4). There are 14 wines (red, white, and sparkling) on the menu, including a few New York labels, and seasonal drinks like hot ciders and toddies.
