As its name suggests, this bar used to be a bait shop for local fisherman until in 2004 when it turned into Red Hook Bait & Tackle. The inside of this dive bar includes taxidermied animals and fishing memorabilia plastered on the walls, giving this place a unique ambiance not found in many New York bars. A merry mix of locals congregate here for dependable nights of revelry, beer and good times.
This little café-bar in Red Hook, Brooklyn has a small but satisfying lunch menu with four sandwiches plus daily salad specials. The dinner menu changes daily but has meat-eater and vegetarian options. There's a little list of wines by the glass and the bottle, and the cocktails are a taste of history, with some recipes coming from the 1800s and early 1900s. This is a nice place to stop by for lunch, a drink, or some great coffee.
If you're in the mood to try some authentic Italian cuisine in an exquisite elegant setting, then Marco Polo is the place for you. Opened in 1983, the fare is upscale Italian, ambiance classy and in the menu there's a flavor for every taste. Get your meal started off by ordering entrees such as Portobello mushrooms, Ceasar salad and Mozzarella caprese. Then move on to try the pasta and non-veg selections. The perfect finale would be apple strudel served with ice cream. A full bar is available too with live piano music played every night. Ideal for couples and older guests.
Whiskey Soda Lounge is an extension of the modest Pok Pok restaurant situated next door. Patrons can throng Whiskey Soda Lounge while they wait for their table at Pok Pok. However, the lounge is capable of functioning by itself too, since it serves classic Pok Pok dishes like the Jin Tup Roht Dii. Since it's primarily a bar, the drinks stand out due to their freshness. Unconventional cocktails like Salted Lime Vodka Collins, Tamarind Whiskey Sour and Yuzu-Honey Whiskey Hot Toddy are featured on the menu. The Thai street décor of the place adds a hint of authenticity to the place.
Brooklyn Social is your best bet if you want to have some pre-dinner drinks. Relax at the pool side garden and sip on some classic martinis expertly mixed by Mark Ruffalo. And if you are in the mood for some music, there is a juke box in the main bar area where you can select songs of your choice.On weekends, the bar is buzzing with locals and service can get a little slow with all the crowd and chaos. So be sure to carry some patience along. Only cash accepted.
Beware! Yachting in the Gowanus Canal may lead to the development of a third eye or an extra finger. The Gowanus Yacht Club will most likely only lead to good times on the cheap with the cool kids. Situated in the mix of Carroll Gardens, this little outdoor, sea-themed beer garden gets cramped and a little rowdy by attracting a younger crowd. Perhaps they're more willing to drown in the cheap beer swill served in pitchers and cups. Cheap eats include burgers and hot dogs. Lose your dignity with some friends and no doubt your ship will sail.
Though the wait may be long, it is well worth waiting in Brooklyn Crab. This three story crustacean and seafood restaurant offers a wonderful view of the harbor from its deck and has a rustic, almost bucolic vibe to it. Featuring two unique bars, a 1950s mini golf course, corn hole courts, a huge outdoor patio and a raw bar, Brooklyn Crab is a fun place for family and friends in Red Hook.
Sunny's Bar has been around for decades, a favorite of the Red Hook locals and even some Manhattanites who travel all the way to Brooklyn. The place is your typical neighborhood dive bar, without any frills. The drinks are cheap, the décor unpretentious with knick knacks collected over the years being displayed. The place is swarming with friendly faces, young hipsters and some older ones who have been regulars for many years. There is a high stool bar as you enter, an old kitchen with a long table that is now used by patrons, an outdoor area for smokers and also a room with a band playing. Patrons are free to pick the instrument of their choice and join in!
Skip the fancy cocktails and spend the night indulging in a supreme selection of beers at Bar Great Harry. They feature a draft rotation that changes at least once a week, but you'll always see favorites like Sly Fox, Yeungling, Flying Dog and Penn Weizen. They even boast a bottle list with some 70+ beers! Whatever you'll have for the night, there will be plenty of it available. Also look out for their special drink promotions, happy hour and events as well as Trivia Night. You may even be lucky enough to meet the gravity cask.
Situated on Smith Street in Carroll Gardens, The Wing Bar is a cozy, bare bones kind of place specializing in wings. The bar gets busy during sporting events and features several big televisions to take in all the action. The bar is on the left and most of the tables on the right. Besides wings, the food menu features a range of greasy joint dishes like burgers and fries. There aren't really any healthy choices, but it's all rock n roll here. WB has a decent selection of basic beers on tap with the option for pitchers and a few others in the bottle. There's outdoor seating in the summertime. The wings are good and optionally hot enough, and the atmosphere pleasant enough for those looking for a semi-rowdy sports bar vibe. -Wynne Boelt
