One of the great Brooklyn bars. Must see.

I hate to see this bar get too busy, so I hesitate to tell people about it. This bar is fantastic if you happen to really love a well designed and beautiful old bar. It's the kind of bar you can sit at for hours. Deep enough to sit straight forward without bumping your knees, high enough to accommodate anyone, foot rest (very important), hooks for your bag, comfortable stools and so much to look at in the excellent wood design and great interior. The beer list is very good - lots to choose from and great drafts. I've been here twice and happy to see something seasonal each time. The music is shockingly good - not always the case with an old school bar, I was surprised. They even have a nice small menu if you're feeling peckish. I had the mini cheeseburgers and they were good.

Crowded & Uncomfortable

"So many places to sit".... what! If you don't get one of the big booths or a spot at the bar, you're forced to stand in the middle alleyway, sort of an awkward space to stand with your beer while people hussle by. It's got a nice decor and all but I don't see the point in going out of your way to come here, especially on one of their busier nights.

Obnoxious

This place is great if you want to be in the company of obnoxious self-absorbed inebriated morons under the dark wood facade of refined old England. The space is claustrophobic and awkward. There are much better bars in the neighborhood.

great bar for hanging out with a group

This bar is great and a really good place to go with a group - there are so many places to sit and the music is awesome. There is no other bar like this in New York. It's well worth the trip to Greenpoint.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
