    One of the best bars in fishtown if you just want to grab a few friends, have a few city wides, and just hang out. Sitting outside in the yard during the summer is the best

    The back outside area is pretty great. Has true BKLYN feel. That said, getting around inside can be quite a chore when it is packed.

    There is nothing quite like the wonder that is El Bar. When it gets warm out, throwing back Citywides in the backyard is heaven on earth.

    When the bartender mumbles something about "the special" when you walk in, it likely means a PBR and a shot. Read more
