best in the neighborhood

The only bar in the region not catering to old men with scarred knuckles that totally and entirely lacks pretense. The staff is exceptionally friendly and--miraculously--attitude free, the atmosphere is comfortable, and the prices reasonable.

It's OK, but one of the 5 best?

Don't get me wrong-- I have no beef with this place. It's a fine place to have a cocktail, but I really don't see it on any "top 5" list. The place needs a little focus; it seems like the owners were trying to go a few too many directions at once. That's my opinion, but I suggest you check it out yourself.

This bar rocks!

This is just a great bar -- great place to throw back drinks, alone, on a date, or with a big group of friends. Eclectic jukebox, comfortable 50s style booths, a pool table and even the wonderful Ms. Pac Man. Brooklyn-priced drinks, which is always nice. Perfect-sized crowds. Just an all-around great feel to the place. One of the best Brooklyn bars, and of course, Brooklyn bars are ten times better that Manhattan bars.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • 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.
