  • best bar in Brooklyn. Live music in a setting that will make you wanna come back. Cheap, good cocktails.
  • end your night at perhaps the best americana bar i've ever been to. all whiskey all the time, and awesome bluegrass jams on saturday nights in the back room.
  • This place is out of a time capsule. Probably a million bars like this in Montana but we're lucky this one is in Red Hook.
  • Winner of Best Bluegrass Bar in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Sunday nights are the best acoustic circle in the city.
  • The gooviest bar in the land. No hipsters. Only open 3 days a week.
  • Sunny's is the best bar in America, a kind, simple place that exists outside time and the normal course of Brooklyn trend-humping. But keep that between you & me, our little secret, k?
  • One of the few quiet, unpretentious bars left in the world. I love this place.
  • Sunny's: 90% end of the universe plus 5% E. Annie Proulx novel + 5% Clint Eastwood film. Order an Amstel Light and get the hairy eyeball. All whiskey, all the time. Water in dangerous proximity.
  • Great bar, a truly special place!
  • Best dive bar ever. Sweet patio and epic (and free) bluegrass jams on Saturday night.
  • The best bar in the city.
  • The music's in the back, the long narrow bar is in the front room and the small patio has seating, bicycles being used as planters, and lawn ornaments (though no lawn).
  • Kitschy, eclectic, strange bar. Loved sitting outside and listening to the blue grass band.
  • Hot cider with whiskey is great in the fall.
  • Way out of the way, but good vibes and chill atmosphere. Live music and comfy surroundings. Recommended.
  • Established in 1890, continuously family owned & operated. Previously named for the owner's great-grandfather, John. At quiet times, the back room feels like you're drinking in a museum.
  • You need to come for bluegrass jams on saturday night
  • Great local bar. Snag a booth by the bar and enjoy live music. Saturday nights are jam sessions.
  • Go and get yourself a drink and settle into the back. Buy the guy playing the banjo a drink; he's awesome.
  • Cash only, but cheap so you dont need that much cash ;)
