What it is: Named after Ireland’s oldest bar, Brooklyn’s version is a spacious neighborhood place with an outdoor space for the warmer months. Fifteen beers on tap and one cask, but no judgment if you want to stick to cheap can + whiskey shot combo.
Why we love it: Brazen Head is many bars in one: On a regular weeknight it’s a casual, relaxed local with the friendliest bartenders for a wide radius. They open early and have free wifi, so during the day it’s perfect for some freelancer day drinking. Then, for drinking occasions, they always throw a rollicking fun party for major sporting events and drinking holidays and Atlantic Antic. (more…)
You’ve been there before: unable to work at home, you pop in to the local coffee shop to soak up the wifi and get yourself focused with a cup of joe. The next thing you know, you’re on your third cup, you’ve got the shakes and somehow still aren’t done working. You’ve got to take the edge off somehow, but still don’t want to go home. What’s a girl to do? Fortunately for you, Brooklyn is home to bars that offer wifi AND open early enough to get you back in balance. Happy hour, here you come! (more…)
Whether you love the game, or just love to get drunk with friends, it’s seems there are a lot of establishments trying to get your attention on Sunday. Going to a bar for Super Bowl can be very expensive, however, dear Brokelynite, do not be deterred by bars charging high pre fixes just for food and entry (here’s looking at you, Angry Wades and Cody’s). A lot of Brooklyn bars are offering free food and great drink specials. And for those who don’t give two (toe) licks about football, there are some non-game options, as well. Find out below. (more…)
This is the latest in our series on the bars featured in the Brokelyn Beer Book. The Brazen Head on Atlantic Ave. is chock-full of food and drink specials. April 10 is their Spring Clam and Oyster Shuck.
