Last week, we wrote about the best dive bars in Williamsburg and Bushwick. In case you thought Park Slope was all sunlit brunch spots full of strollers — we’re here to prove you wrong. Here are four of the most unpretentious, fun, and reasonably priced bars to be found in the Slope.
The very decorative ladies room at Freddy’s Bar | Amanda H. via Yelp
Forced to relocate from Prospect Height to South Slope by Barclays Center, Freddy’s packed up years of knickknacks and kitsch and re-emerged as a new old neighborhood favorite. There are comedy nights and other events in the back room, and you can order a patty melt or a Nathan’s hot dog, alongside your very reasonably priced drink.
Pretty much explains the vibe at Lucky 13 | Alyssa N. via Yelp
Famous for its metal-heavy jukebox and White Trash Special — a PBR and a shot of whiskey for $6 — Lucky 13 also has a large selection of absinthe, which is not a dive bar standard, at least not in this century. You can also order a vegan White Russian, and on some nights there are pole dancers.
Happy Hour on the back patio! | via High Dive
This is a solid neighborhood bar with a backyard, free popcorn and lots of beer to choose from. It’s not a dumpy dive, but it is the kind of straightforward bar that can be hard to find in a city filled with $15 handcrafted cocktails.
