1120 Manhattan Ave., nr. Clay St., Greenpoint; no phone
The upper reaches of Greenpoint have lately joined the blocks around Mars Bar and Hank’s Saloon as a locus point for rock-and-roll misfits. Their new hangout, Saint Vitus, is a lofty space bouncing with red candlelight and a knobs-to-eleven soundtrack of goth rock and metal. At the front bar, roadie types sling beer-and-shot combos (a Brooklyn Brine pickleback with a Coors tallboy is a good choice). Bands perform in back, and soon, live-band karaoke will fire up.
