Tips

  • This bar has a designated jukebox stool so you dont throw your back out while choosing from its varied but consistently cool selections by the likes of Wire, Dinosaur Jr. and the Dead Boys.
  • The more you drink, the more legible Ray's handwriting gets on the jukebox.
  • Amazing & cheap jukebox - $1 for 4 songs and a stool to sit down while you make your selections.
  • Sheila rocks!
  • 45 feet from my apartment. Love this place, great staff, big selection & free popcorn. $3 high life, plenty of $5 options, best dive bar in the slope
  • Good drinks, simple vibe, good jukebox.
  • Smells like cigarettes. I bet the ash trays come out late at night.
  • get plastered and be an asshole.
  • Friendly staff and pretty much the best jukebox in all of NYC. Television, New York Dolls, Stooges, MC5, Sabbath, Replacements, Bowie, etc. -- deep cuts, not the usual suspects.
  • Great music, tasty Moscow Mule
  • The Raspberry Vodka Lemonade is: On. Point.
  • Honestly, this bar is stellar in comparison to others on 5th ave in south slope. Also free pop corn and pork slap on tap! Personal fav kelso nut brown too!
  • Best bar ever.
  • Pinball machine ate my quarters. Lame.
  • Something about a stool, free popcorn, were from Denver, so is the bartender...
  • Chill, unpretentious with a great jukebox selection. re: Rushmore's Ohh La La; highly recommend to those looking for a low key night.
  • Should be called "Bar of Horses" love how often they play Band of Horses in here
  • Best jukebox in Brooklyn... and a nifty little stool next to it so you can sit and take in all the great titles while you DJ.
  • love this place. legit jukeox...but i miss the coffeboy shots.
