Classon Social Club
807 Classon Ave (at St. John’s Place), Crown Heights
What it is: A cozy spot dedicated to art, food, drinks, and great live music in the heart of Crown Heights.
Why we love it: We come for the drinks and the tapas-style bar food, but stay for the nightly live music. Owned by a chef/ resterateur and a successful music promoter, this bar/ restaurant/ music venue is the best of all three worlds.
What to order: If you’re a seafood fan, order a heaping helping of mussels or a highly recommended serving of shrimp and grits. If you’re not a seafood fan, order any of their amazing tapas-style small plates. Be sure to check out their long list of beers and wines for a good pairing (or, if you’re like us, something cheap.)
Regular tip: Check their Facebook before you visit for a list of nightly live music acts.
