    end your night at perhaps the best americana bar i've ever been to. all whiskey all the time, and awesome bluegrass jams on saturday nights in the back room.

    Sunny's is the best bar in America, a kind, simple place that exists outside time and the normal course of Brooklyn trend-humping. But keep that between you & me, our little secret, k?

    You’re bound to get down to some bossa nova or bluegrass with the locals and the newbies on Friday and Saturday nights. Get lost inside and in the back garden exploring all of the bar’s unique quirks. Read more

    Great late night spot. Live music in the front, nice outdoor space in the back. And don't get caught peeing out front.

    Always a great crowd and great music. Indispensable to Red Hook. Go here and leave the city behind, even if you can step out and see Manhattan from the front door.

    This place is incredible. It might be the perfect neighborhood bar. And $2 for a beer in NYC? Unreal.

    An institution, one of the best bars in the world. Super low key, great outdoor space. Real cozy indoors in the winter. Cash Only!

    Fantastic bar. Live music in the back. Def worth stopping by if you're in Red Hook. Narragansetts!

    Real as it gets. Elevates the dive bar aesthetic into and American artform. Beer in bottles and whiskey is the name of the game

    Stepping into Sunny’s is akin to taking a time machine to a time when shipyard workers came in after their shifts. Basically it’s your dream dive. Cash only.

    Nick Offerman, of Parks and Recreation fame, used to drink here after work. Sunny's is located near a woodworking shop he rented while his wife was taping Will and Grace.

    The music's in the back, the long narrow bar is in the front room and the small patio has seating, bicycles being used as planters, and lawn ornaments (though no lawn). Read more

    Go on Saturdays for the Bluegrass Jam! It's starts at 9pm & gets crowed, so go early for a seat.

    Established in 1890, continuously family owned & operated. Previously named for the owner's great-grandfather, John. At quiet times, the back room feels like you're drinking in a museum.

    This place is low-key, authentic and seemingly unchanged by time. Think nautical, but more long-shoreman than stripes and boat shoes.

    Music is awesome, and the drinks are great. Cash only though (they have an ATM on site)

    Sunny's is a classic dive bar. If you've never made the pilgrimage, you owe it to yourself to do so.

    This place is out of a time capsule. Probably a million bars like this in Montana but we're lucky this one is in Red Hook.

    Get a beer or a Manhattan, sit by the windows and enjoy the music. If it's a nice day, squeeze into the cozy internal backyard and if there's live music, run to the back and enjoy it!!

    Pure Love for this place. Nothing compares to that. No sports, no rubish pop rock indie blabla music. Just a bar and drinks. Done

    Sunny's: 90% end of the universe plus 5% E. Annie Proulx novel + 5% Clint Eastwood film. Order an Amstel Light and get the hairy eyeball. All whiskey, all the time. Water in dangerous proximity.
