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.

Black Mountain Winehouse

black mountainA delightful little place. They went for the cottage house look and pulled it off beautifully. The ambiance is nice and relaxed, after all the wine bar is situated in (yuppie, but not as stuffy as Park Slope and with nicer moms)  Carroll Gardens, a block away from the bustling Smith St. The yummy small plates go quite well with the very decent wine list. A glass of wine starts at $6.50
