    If comfortable neighborhood bars are your thing, this could be your new favorite place.

    An old-fashioned neighborhood bar. Gruff regulars balance out the yuppie newcomers.

    Pool table in the back - $1.25 per game in quarters.

    One of Brooklyn's oldest and most unassuming bars, the Brooklyn Inn doesn't rely on gimmicks: it just serves reasonably priced beer and mainstay cocktails. Read more

    I try to find a seat in the back, or play pool. I don't find the bar stools comfortable.

    Feels like a hidden secret. My whiskey and ginger was on the strong side, not that I'm complaining...

    Don't know much about up front but in back they've got a good pool table and a great juke box

    Looks tiny at first, but this bar is really spacious! It's pretty easy to get a table on a weekend night.

    Love this bar so much, it's the perfect Friday evening wind from the week type of a bar..

    Cozy and sexy vibe with locals and newbies. Great place to grab a drink and get close in a corner.

    Nice old school feel with strong, cheap drinks. It's dark and there's pool, if you're into that kind of stuff.

    A nice, unassuming bar with a great ambience. It was so chill, people didn't even make a big deal when Dan Cortese walked in.

    Feels like a classy dive and perfect on a chilly day. Cozy interior and a pool table in back.

    Cool, dark, bar with some history. Bartenders are some of the nicest in the city, that I've come across.

    Just moved here from Australia. They do NOT have bars like this back home. So much wood, so many candles, so much class. So good for a local bar.

    Local place full of weirdos, writers, nerds, and hotties of all genders and persuasions. Sometimes funny stuff happens here.

    Place blows up on weekend but it's a good date place. Jonathan Ames and John Hodgeman supposedly come here a lot but I've never seen them.

    Bring a date here. They'll think you're cool for knowing the best bar in the neighborhood isn't on Smith or Court streets. Have a beer at the bar.

    Pool isn't free, $1.50 a game. Cash only at this bar... there is an ATM though.

    Back by popular demand after closing, The Brooklyn Inn has a sleek vintage decor and was mentioned in The Village Voice's top ten jukebox bars!

    Closed for "renovations?" The most beautiful bar in Brooklyn with just the right aged patina doesn't need any reservations at all. What's going on?

    oldest bar in brooklyn, i believe. used to be a teahouse during prohibition and you would press a button if you wanted booze in your tea.

    It's Tom that we should all be writing about. He's the boss. Forget all of those bullshit bars w suspenders and handlebars .. This guy is for reals.

    Cozy neighborhood bar with one mean Bloody Mary. You might even bump into Jason Schwatzman. Boom!

    Quaint place to hang for a beer if you don't want to go to crowded Smith St. Bartenders are always nice and the atmosphere is great.

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. If they gentrified the old brick section of heaven, this place would be the neighborhood bar. Get a Brooklyn Lager and enjoy.

    Bars are supposed to be dark. This place nails it with the street lights brightening the place more than the indoor flourescents. POW!

    Know the history of the bar? Ask the bartender while you order up a pint. A little knowledge with your adult beverage.

    Laid back, old school Brooklyn bar. Dark but not seedy. A little romance and little badass. Free pool

    I recommend this old-fashioned yet spiffy bar. Plenty of space for larger gatherings in the back rooms, and great juke.

    Bartender Jason has been around the block, and is probably one of the best in New York. Watch for him as "cop" on Law & Order.
