Description

Village Voice's Description

Although this Carroll Gardens hangout is named partly after the Texas town, don't expect cowboys and honky-tonk here. On a recent Sunday night the only country-western vibe came from an iPod that mixed Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline with Cat Power, Built to Spill, and other indie-rock favorites. Those tired of fighting for a seat at the always crowded Brooklyn Social nearby will be happy to see there's ample room to stretch out here: Church pews and tables run along one wall, 17 bar stools line the extra-long oak-topped bar, and '60s-ish vintage sofas and cushy benches are in back. Futuristic chandeliers that resemble glowing molecular models hang over the bar while candles give off just enough table light to play Connect Four, Yahtzee, and other games.

    Favorite local bar. Kind of like being in someone's basement.

    Winner of Best People-Watching Bar in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! The outdoor tables and strong Bloody Marys make conversation easy.

    get there around 5-6 PM on Sunday afternoon right after a movie and sit outside in Spring and Summer to do some people watching while drinking a wheat beer
