    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.

    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.

    Great martinis and really nice place for an early evening or Saturday afternoon drink. Pretty space, high ceilings, nice light in the afternoon, great music

    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

    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.

    Great bar. Perfect beers on tap. Historically good seating karma. Hot bros in interesting shirts. Wyatt Cenac sightings. Have fun.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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!

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

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

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

    My girlfriend lost a light grey long cardigan here. Two years ago. If anyone has seen it, please email me at lurk02productions@yahoo.com. Social media at its best!!!

    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.

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

    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?

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

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

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

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

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

    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.

    The bloody mary is off the chart delicious. And spicy.
