Bars We Love: All aboard at Passenger Bar!

by -

Passenger Bar
229 Roebling Street (Corner of S. 3rd)

What it is: An artist-haven in a prime South Williamsburg location, Passenger Bar evokes the collaborative spirit of New York in its 1970s creative heyday.

Why we love it: Cool without trying, Passenger Bar is as much of a bar as it is a community. Weekly comedy shows, burlesque performances, and a rotating cast of psychedelic DJs offer way more than just a pit-stop to grab a quick bite and some brews. We’re also partial to their monthly “Sunday Social,” which features 100s of used records and and a selection of bespoke baubles for sale, along with drink specials and yummy Porschetta sandwiches. Last but not least, be sure to check out the Self-Portrait Project — a permanent free photobooth tucked away in the back corner that will instantly become your go-to for a new Tinder default.

What to order: Passenger Bar offers a top-notch draft selection, including old standbys like Captain Lawrence and Sixpoint, for $7 and under. You’ve gotta wash your beer down with a spinach & cheese empanada or a Sigmund’s Truffle Cheese pretzel. Top either with their homemade hot sauce and you’ve been transported to bar-food heaven.

Regular tip: Ask Ryan to make you a jalapeno margarita. Trust us, just do it.
