    Freddy's wasn't always in this neighborhood, but it's an old favorite no matter where in Brooklyn. Pro tip: There's a backyard for private smoking. Check out their back room for musical performances.

    Resurrected in Park Slope from its Prospect Heights ruins, Freddy’s famous, quirky décor — like a giant marlin and four-inch stiletto — has returned, along with much of its loyal clientele.
