Paris and Nicole can skip their next trip to the boonies and just take a trip to Atlantic Avenue. There, the bar Floyd, NY is modeled after taverns in Floyd, Iowa, owner Pam Carden’s hometown. She and her husband, Jim, have have added rural elements like a jukebox stocked with Hank Williams and the Bad Livers; tin ceilings; vintage signs; a salvaged 1870s bar; and nice bartenders. It looks like a joint that’s been around for ages—not a renovated liquor store. Schlitz beer and Kentucky beer cheese complete the theme. An indoor bocce court, on the other hand, doesn’t make sense at all.

Also known as "Union Hall Light"   Floyd is a good spot, and it has some decent courts and some good beers.  Its set up is kind of awkward though and you find yourself trying to talk to someone with a ceiling beam in between the two of you.  It does have the classic charm of a Brooklyn bar and the crowd will never let you down.  Good spot.
