This place isn’t a dive, but the drinks are still cheap, and you’re still going to find a crowd looking for a good time. This is Bushwick, so it’s likely that whoever you talk to will look like they just ran away from a small town where nobody shared their taste in music (and made a pit stop at a vintage store). Technically this is a restaurant, but the room in back feels more like a bar, and the whole place has a good energy at night.
It looks like the sort of place Al Pacino’s Scarface would’ve partied at if he’d gone to art school instead of going all-in on the drugs thing.
It’s really just a nice, normal bar with some dart boards and a pool table, although it gets pretty crowded on weekends, and it’s the sort of place where you can start a conversation with a random person without seeming too weird. And, while you probably won’t dance, it’s nice to know that you can.
Come on a slow night, and you’ll still find a decent crowd here.
You’ll also find a little jar with hair ties on top of the single toilet, despite the fact that people really only puke on weekends.
The only way to get any privacy is to tuck yourself way back into a booth, so chances are you’ll talk to a stranger.
That’s twice as true on weekends, when the crowd is thick and actively seeking company.
