The Brooklyn Inn

brooklyn innThis 138-year-old Boerum Hill tavern has a impressive hand-carved wooden bar that was transplanted piece by piece from Germany in the 1870s. The crowd is almost as eclectic as the jukebox (expect anything from hip hop to obscure folk). There is a pool table in the back room. If you want some food, you can order from their thick stack of takeout menus and wash it down with a wide array of fancy brews. Those who have read Jonathan Lethem’s Motherless Brooklyn, will probably find this bar strangely familiar, after all he does live down the block.
