Red Hook Bait & Tackle

redhook bait and tackle goodThis once bait shop, now serves as one of Redhook’s laid back neighborhood bars. There is taxidermy, an Extreme Hunting video game and Blue Point beer. The bar is made from a tree that fell in a nearby church’s garden. Bloody Sundays go on from 2 pm to 8 pm and have what else, but their house special Bloody Marys and bloody good live music. This is where redneck aesthetics and neighborhood artists seamlessly come together. It works because this is not Williamsburg. Redhook is a working class neighborhood where the gentrifiers and the old timers are basically in the same tax bracket. Will it change? Well, there is the new Ikea… But, don’t expect too many hipsters to be willing to trek the 20 minute walk from the Carroll stop in order to get here.

Directions: To avoid the long walk , take the A, C, or F to Jay St.-Borough Hall and take B61 bus, which will drop you off  right outside.
