Village Voice's Description

To get to Sunny's in Red Hook, ye must take the F train to Smith Street, hop on the B77 bus, and hike several blocks. It's worth the trek. Sunny's feels like the middle of someone's living room, and no wonder; Sunny Balzano, the bar's long-haired namesake, thinks of it as an extension of his home next door. His great-grandfather opened the bar in 1890 as a haven for shipyard workers, and model ships still line the shelves. Bands, often bluegrass, play impromptu sets, completing the laid-back sailor vibe.

    Winner of Best Bluegrass Bar in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Sunday nights are the best acoustic circle in the city.

    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?

    best bar in Brooklyn. Live music in a setting that will make you wanna come back. Cheap, good cocktails.

    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.
