My boyfriend and I went to this place after some drinks nearby. The music is so good and the outside area is a lot of fun, buzzing with energy and cool people. There's also a photobooth - who doesn't love a photobooth?

Great place. Excellent live music. Must be even better during warmer times. Very nice crowd. A dedicated place for lives. Close to Marcy.

Good music, with irreverent people and cozy atmosphere. Drinks and food are cheap. The Bands are great. I went on Reverend Vince Anderson's Day and the Love Choir and I fell in love.

The atmosphere is great since there's a patio where a food truck is located and of course the indoor bar area. I don't recommend the chips and salsa (a little bland for my taste) but the tacos are great. This is definitely one of my favorite spots in Brooklyn.

Bar with live music and large beer garden. Great vintage photo booth that works. Reasonable priced. A bit dark inside but maybe that's for a reason.

What a way to spend a Monday night! Great music, friendly staff & patrons. As a trombone player who knew the saxophone player I was blessed to join the band for a song. What an experience!
