    The bar has a killer soundtrack. Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, etc. Get a draft beer, let the music give you some mojo, and make new friends.

    I was only here about 5 minutes saying hi to some friends but it was so cute! I'll be back for sure.

  • Afi Y.

    Great selection of beer (lots of things you might not find elsewhere!) for solid prices. It's cozy and dark inside (clearly a great date spot), but there's also a big back patio for larger groups.

    Good draft beer selection, reasonably priced, nice bar that seems like it gets a crowd most nights.

    Watch out for Brian Huff always buying people mad drinks and then bumming cigarettes "because he is quitting"

    This is a perfect bar.

    The drinks are good Asian female bartender is kind of rude but what ever

  • Melissa L.

    Love the backyard area. Bar area is really narrow and awkwardly placed. Bartenders are really nice.

  • Hilda U.

    Been here only three times. Had beers and cocktails (beers are better). They've seasonal beers on tap ranging from $4 - $9, friendly folks behind the bar, and non-rowdy crowd. Music: random

    Great backyard space. The burrata appetizer is amazing, but the food is a separate business so it's not always available.

    Love this bar! Big backyard

    Outdoor patio in back, great spot for reasonable brews and easy vibe, a Crown Heights local gem

    It's my neighborhood bar. It's my favorite.

    Had a creepy experience at the bar when a guy wouldn't stop hitting on the bartender. Then he went on explaining to me that it's ok and they knew each other. Seriously dude? They sell Singlecut beer.

    One of my favorite bars in Brooklyn, and it's so close to home too!

    Barr hill gin was a nice surprise

    Pablo De Ioannes · August 25, 2013

    The sandwiches here are the best food on Franklin Avenue, get a pork belly or short rib sandwich.

    Chris Mcnally · August 21, 2013
  • Billy S.

    Bloody Mary's are definitely worth getting

    Billy Snow · August 11, 2013
  • Michelle Wendy

    Visit the Black Tree sandwich guy in the back past the bar. They now reside in LES too but you better believe these seasonal/local produce gems got their start at The Crown Inn. They're phenomenal!!!

    If you were in a sitcom based in Brooklyn this would be your TV show bar.

    One of my favorite local bars. Drinks are great. Bartenders are awesome.

  • Julie M.

    Cocktails (whisky recommended) are great, backyard is excellent. Don't even look at the menu. Just go up and ask the sandwich man what to eat.

    The shady patio is an awesome place to work on the weekend. Artisinal sammies, rose for days and free wifis. #FTW

    Not only can you have a great cocktail here, but they have partnered with Black Tree to offer some great eats like their spare rib, blue cheese sandwich.

    Crown Inn + Chenya = heaven! Thank you for making my favorite drink in the most perfect homemade way. Ask for the lemonade and vodka, happy summer!

  • Madison G.

    Like top shelf but hate top shelf prices? No worries, the bartenders are good and will make you the best well of your life--had the best non-Hendricks gimlet ever tonight. The key: fresh lime juice!

    Madison Gouzie · June 19, 2012
  • Rick A.

    Get the bloody Mary one of the best around.

    Rick Apicella · June 16, 2012
