    You can rely on this place to have people on an off-night when other places may be empty. Cheap beer and a solid cocktail happy hour. Pool table in back, and chair-swing in front you should sit in.

    I love this place. Offers something a *little* different than other bars in the area- cool little seating area and delicious food.

    Pre and post-pandemic, they continue to serve one of the best chicken sandwiches in the city. Maybe it's marinated in soy sauce and ginger? So juicy and full of unami.

    I used to go here a lot, I don't so much anymore but it's still a good place for drunken hangs.They pour strong drinks...order one of their boozy slushies! I always have a fun time at The Johnson's.

    Some of the cheapest drinks in NYC! Can't beat $2 beers. Love the chill vibe. Be sure to drink while swinging or lounging on the bed!

    Love the vibe. It makes me feel in a old movie! Great songs, also. Cheap beer!

    Divey in back like your 1980's Midwestern uncle's basement where he hungout with his union buddies talking shop but brighter up front where the women gossip and the food is made.

    Long long happy hour (YAY) $2 lions heads, $5 cocktails until 9. Definitely nicer than Welcome to the Johnsons in LES. More of a retro vibe. Nice chairs to sit in at the enclosed outdoor space.

    Sister bar in Bushwick to the Welcome to the Johnson's bar in the Lower East Side. Way less gritty, but nice!

    Cheap drinks with a great crowd. Way better then the sister bar in the LES. the music and bar staff is above par.

    This place gets hated on real hard but there are adult swings, happy hour goes til 9, and you'll feel like you're on the set of any 1960's tv show.

    This place is tiny like my great grandparent's living room and it gets really packed in here. You may run into Lady Gaga on occasion, though.

    Pretty chill place. Perfect for a (2$! ) beer. They have sofas and a pool table. Nice.

    It reminds me of a friends parents fancy basement/garage bar. They had me at the hanging wicker chairs!

    The Painkillers are good, and $4. Have one... if you don't mind losing the rest of the day (and night).

    Fun young and hip. The only problem is that it's in Bushwick.

    Cheap drinks and a weird "my parents upgraded their patio" vibe in the entrance.
