My first stop of the night recently in Brooklyn. Great location on Union Street, right around the corner from 5th Ave. Outside of the building is a bit unimpressive, blank brick facade. However, the glow of lights and activity from inside is captivating, especially the portrait of a Shriner hanging aglow above the fireplace.
High ceilings, low lighting, with decor resembling that of old-style gentleman's' club, with a hipster twist. Right side is long darkwood bar, left front is lounge seating abutting library shelves with the aforementioned portrait.
Back section is mainly two Bocce courts, with seating around the sides, and a lounge for private parties in the way back. There is a downstairs as well for shows, but this particular evening required 10 bucks to enter, so I declined. Outdoor area in the ally for smoking and lounging.
Arrived on a Saturday around 10pm, it was pretty packed and only got more packed as the night went on.
Selection was pretty good, with around 15 choices on tap, and 20-25 in bottle. I enjoyed the Victory Stonybrook stout, and an amber ale that escapes me. I noticed Sixpoint, Brooklyn, Chimay, Duvel, Sam Adams, and DFH. Many more as well.
Food menu is limited but good. We enjoyed the pizza rusticana, which was tasty.
Service was prompt, but with so many people, it was hard for the servers to be attentive.
If you like a lively atmosphere with good beer, and don't mind standing for most of the night, then this place is for you. I myself prefer some of the more low key places nearby. But as it is, a pretty good place.
