The Fifth Avenue happy hour guide

Yeah, yeah, we’ve heard it all before. Park Slope is full of strollers, free-spirited moms, and crunchy co-op people. It’s also full of snazzy places to get your happy hour booze on; particularly on the Fifth Avenue corridor between Flatbush Avenue and 3rd Street. We did the dirty work and checked out every dive bar, gastropub, and basically any place with a roof and four walls that looked like it sold alcohol on the aforementioned stretch. So read on, dear cynical reader, and start planning your very own Fifth Avenue pub crawl. Make sure to check out the meal deals at Long Tan and the $5 fresh juice margaritas at Lobo.
