303 Bedford Ave. between S 1st and S 2nd Streets,
What it is: A favorite dog-lovers’ spot in South Williamsburg loved by locals for its cheap drinks, back patio and dive vibe.
Why we love it: Luckydog was loved most of all for its dog-friendly policy, but even after the health code crackdown, its customers remain loyal. Why? Because, like man’s best friend, you can rely on Luckydog—it’ll fetch you drinks, quell your loneliness and lower your blood pressure* while slinging a well-rounded selection of inexpensive drinks, guitar-heavy Jukebox songs and DGAF attitudes from the staff and regulars.
*this statement has not been evaluated by the FDA.
What to order: A Brooklyn Lager and shot of well whiskey.
Regular tip: The bar’s interior is relatively small and gets packed on weekends, so go early or prepare to practice patience when ordering your drinks.
