Southpaw co-owner Matthew Roff converted this former Crown Heights garage into a 1,300-square-foot beer “garden”—a liberal definition for this tree-shaded concrete slab. Inside you’ll find a handsome oak bar, but the real scene is outdoors, where picnic tables are packed with grateful locals. Join them to sip one of a dozen pricey-for-the-’hood drafts, like He’Brew’s crisp Coney Island Lager.

This is a good place to go for a quick bite to eat. The service and food are decent. It's prime in the summer time.
This is a popular place so it is often packed, ESPECIALLY in the summer time. I just feel like the set up in the back is obnoxious because it's designed like they don't have heavy traffic. I guess I can't truly complain about something that is partially structural but I just wish the seat was set up different
Also on the occasion that I was there and it was pretty empty, there was ridiculously loud music blasting. I don't mean like cute background music , I mean it sounded like a club at 2am. They also have such random musical selections.
