Named for the channel that separates Brooklyn and Governors Island, this spartan yet comfortable drinkery focuses on the simple things: cheap drinks (drafts like Yuengling start at $4; mixed drinks go for $5) and a killer jukebox. A variety of board games are kept behind the bar; nothing livens up a night of drinking like a Connect Four tournament.
