Kind of a strange place to go, but I love it. An older, locals crowd. The youngest person in there is 45. They have karaoke and strong drinks.

Dive bar. Like real old school Brooklyn dive bar. Not a hipster joint. Seriously check it out though. It's the kind of place your grandpa might hang. If you're grandpa used to be a Black Panther.

Lounge with good music and soul food. They have live bands performing, karaoke night (on Fridays), DJ's, mature crowd, great priced drinks, and bartenders who know how to make a great drink.
