Bar of the Day: Bar Matchless

by -

This is the latest in our series on the venues featured in the Brokelyn Beer Book. At Bar Matchless in Greenpoint, the drink specials and live music are practically non-stop, and the foosball is hard-core.


557 Manhattan Ave., Greenpoint, 718-383-5333

What it is: A great trifecta : large beer selection, stage in the back and a kitchen open until 3 a.m.
Why we love it: Places to get late-night, non-bodega food can be few and far between, but Matchless is the place to go. The foosball table and darts will keep you entertained, as will the great stage in the back featuring lots of local bands, and 16 taps of mostly craft brews provide plenty of options.
Who to bring: A date, music fans, foosball champions
What to order: Burgers, mac & cheese and seasonal beers.
Matchless fun fact:
The bar is carved out of an old auto repair shop and still has a vintage sign outside. In warmer weather, they roll up an old garage door by the performance space.
