    Been going her for years. Not huge bar when you go in, but the outdoor area has a fire pit in the winter, a taco truck all year round, and a small music venue, plus it's great for singles. Don't forge

    Cool spot. No fuss. Great happy hour ($5 draft and wine) About $3 to charge your phone in a secure machine by the door for as long as you want.

    Great place to even visit in the winter when there is a fire pit outside. It has a great vibe and there's a taco truck in the back!

    A total casual place if you want a chill night out with friends. Drinks are eh, but omg there is a great taco truck tucked in the backyard! The backyard is a fun place to be in the summer.

    Union Pool shows start late, but that’s okay – the patio is awesome, and the crowd is always friendly. Dip your feet in the pond in the summer, and bring your own marshmallows to roast in the winter. Read more

    Frequent the taco truck in the courtyard at the back and chill on the wooden benches or firepit rim. Dance to live music in the back room, and check out the photo booth.

    Order beers to take outside and get the al pastor tacos from the taco truck. Perfect place to start a night out in Brooklyn.

    A very eclectic spot to catch an outdoor show in Williamsburg - includes an El Diablo taco truck and a photobooth, along with a bonfire.

    Taco truck and authentic photobooth machine? What more could a girl want. Center of Williamsburg and right off the L train so it's always a great meeting spot http://bit.ly/MJk450 -Running in Wedges

    Dance all night, hang outside with some drinks and friends, grab some tacos from their El Diablo taco tuck that runs til 3:30AM, or do all of the above.

    Meet your Charlie here, fresh on the rebound & still wounded from his GF’s best friend’s diary. Maybe it won’t be that specific but you could definitely meet an emo musician at this live-music dive. Read more

    This will always be a Williamsburg staple and the epicenter of hipster Dom. Even two decades later- still offers a great time for a dive.

    Maybe a scene but also a solid place to chill and get drunk and eat tacos and be outside or also inside, y'know, whatever.

    Gotta hit up the taco truck parked in the open back patio area to the left of the fountain. Reasonably priced and helps soak up da booze.

    Photobooth takes awhile to print pics - but be patient, it's worth the wait! Shrimp tacos at the taco truck are also phenomenal :)

    Another great summer bar, decent sized outdoor space. Have never been here for drinks, just tacos. Strongly prefer fish/shrimp tacos here.

    Amazingly huge outdoor deck and seating, with a bar and a taco truck. Inside, there's a photobooth and usually a dance party.

    The show area at Union Pool is decorated like an old vaudeville theater, adding to its charm once you've passed by the taco truck and beer garden.

    Great spot that's open late. Don't miss the taco truck in the back. Perfect place to cap off a long day/night of boozing in Brooklyn.

    Good place to chill and grab a beer and a taco on a weekday night or nice day. I'd stay away on weekend nights if you're over 26

    So seedy, but you know it's fun. Go during warmer months and hang out near the taco truck, and be careful not to catch the Brooklyn Herp.

    Outdoor bar space that has a fire pit that they light in the winter (reflection pond in the summer).

    When did his place become so basic. Essentially a spot for tourists and Manhattanites to flock to because it's a quintessential Williamsburg spot.

    Whoever gets to the center fountain/firepit first gets the girl with the plaid sweater and the gold hair pin. Steer clear of the Diablo taco truck for anything beyond 1st base. Read more

    Go here on weekends if you like long bathroom lines and crowded places where you a decent chance of seeing a sweaty stranger naked.
