    While this bar makes solid drinks, what keeps us coming back is the free popcorn covered in Old Bay. We can't help ourselves! While it's a decent walk from the Barclays Center, it's worth the trip.

    It's a dive bar, but the greatest dive bar. Craft beer, free popcorn, savory pies for $6, wonderful staff that can still make a mean cocktail. It's my go to (and I'm here way too often).

    The name pretty much says it all - if there is such thing as a high-end dive bar, this is it. High Dive’s main assets are free popcorn, a solid rotating beer selection, and a back patio.

    It's taken a few years for the popcorn and whiskey sloshes to turn this place into a real dive. But, plenty of pluses: good drinks, staff, jukebox, patio. Love the "Greatest Show..." sign in back.

    A backyard patio, 90s rock posters, and fully functional (and free) vintage popcorn machine are among the local tap room’s most beloved quirks.

    The new Green Flash IPA on draft is the brewery's best one yet, forgoes the trend of overwhelming hops for a succulent, surprisingly floral brew with a perfectly balanced body. Go get it

    Great summer place. Happy hour goes 'til 8pm, so grab a few pints and a couple bowls of free popcorn topped w/ Old Bay, and sit outside and enjoy.

    Do not only just play the Jenga, play it with the Truth/Dare option. For Mega Jenga: combine the 2-3 different Jenga sets together!

    I've never been here without having a crazy time. The French bartender looks like this guy (see below foto). I spent Valentine's Day here '14 if that tells you how my year is going... ... ...

    Great little bar - Cory is the man however, the female bartenders can be outrageously rude and aggressive for no particular reason. Maybe bar tending isn't the right job for some people...
