97 Atlantic Ave., Brooklyn, NY, 11201
nr. Henry St.
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.
