This n' That
108 N 6th St
This ’n’ That, a project from the team behind Sugarland and Metropolitan, is the first new flag-waving gay bar to open (and stay open) in North Brooklyn since 2008. Long, dark, and narrow, TNT, as regulars call it, is cut from the same dive cloth as the ten-year-old Metro but attracts a younger, more adventurous generation of partygoers. Patrons might sit for a drawing class one night and grind through a funk dance-off the next, while a stage hosts drag-queen karaoke. Cheap beers ($3 drafts till 9 p.m., for instance) keep the frowzy, skinny boys—not to mention occasional wayward heteros—flirty in the black leather banquettes.
