Village Voice's Description

Brooklyn hipster bars thrive on, cherish, and painstakingly rework those handpicked CD selections in the jukebox every, oh, 30 minutes or so. Itas a point of pride and bragging rights, kind of like having your own radio show . . . but not really. We like how the first track on Fugazias 13 Songs, and only the first track, didnat make the cut hereasavagely crossed out with a felt-tip Sharpie.
Park Slope denizens must approve, because this spacious, high-ceilinged bar outfitted with flea-market furniture is still one of their favorites. Their counterparts in Carroll Gardens hit Great Lakesas sister outpost, Boat. Yeah, we still donat get whatas up with the fisherman theme either.

Tips from foursquare

  • Jeff B. on 02/10/10

    Conveniently close to Bonnie's Burgers. Great juke box and very quiet on week nights with a decent beer selection and happy hour.

  • The Corcoran Group on 06/26/10

    It’s always cool in the back of the bar…if you can squeeze your way back there. Awesome jukebox and Fido can come in.

  • Matt R. on 09/04/09

    Ignore the jukebox and shoot some elk instead.

  • Chris G. on 09/26/11

    Awesome jukebox consisting of burnt mix CDs apparently left by alumni staff over the years.

  • Colin J. on 10/02/10

    Great jukebox and reasonable drinks.
