    Reminds me of the old-school East Village bars we grew up with. Great beer selection and the food is a few levels up from typical bar grub. If I lived closer this would be my local.

    A great dive bar. Always comfortable, with nice bartenders, good selection of beers and spirits, tasty bar food and live music.

    Charming dive with some great stuff happening in the back room. Check out "Whiskey + Coke" for the most unpretentious reading series in Brooklyn.

    The drinks are great, the food is tasty, but the video art constantly playing is AMAZING.

    "...where the taps work, and there's more than one grade of booze. By local standards, that makes it a palace--although if it were a real palace, its own inhabitants would be plotting its overthrow." Read more

    Freddy's wasn't always in this neighborhood, but it's an old favorite no matter where in Brooklyn. Pro tip: There's a backyard for private smoking. Check out their back room for musical performances.

    Get the hot dogs and beans and an order of tater tots. It's like middle school, but drunk.

    The best x weirdest bar I've ever been to. The bizzare video loop alone is worth the trip.

    A little secret muse in South Slope. A Lynchian dive worth the dip.

    Come for the affordable beers, stay for the animals, history-scarred tables, and cat drinking milk.

    If Tobacco and Tom Waits opened a bar together, this would be it. Impossible to not love the atmosphere.

    Resurrected in Park Slope from its Prospect Heights ruins, Freddy’s famous, quirky décor — like a giant marlin and four-inch stiletto — has returned, along with much of its loyal clientele.

    Bluegrass! Sunday at 3pm to 6pm in the back room. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon with a 3 buck pint.
