Freddy's Bar

Donald O'Finn, Matt Kimmett and Matt Kuhn, bartenders of the late Freddy's Bar & Backroom, resurrect the scrappy cult favorite, which was evicted from Prospect Heights by the Atlantic Yards project. The no-frills saloon—now located in Sunset Park—is retrofitted with booths, a 1940s red mahogany bar and the graffiti-etched bathroom walls salvaged from the original. Old regulars will find comfort in the eclectic live-music offerings and 75¢ beertinis (that's Budweiser in a martini glass with a pretzel garnish). Newer patrons should appreciate the expanded beer selection (12 taps instead of five) and pub-grub offerings (burgers, hot wings and kielbasa).

A decent menu with a dive bar vibe. There's a performance space in the back room, which caters to performers, and there's a walk-up food window serving tator tots and falafel wraps at reasonable prices. Can get loud when there's a band performing, but not a bad starting spot for your evening.

Rudest waitstaff I've ever experienced in any bar after 23 years in Nyc. Waitress actually called me an "entitled bitch" after she got my drink order wrong and I asked her for the beer I ordered. And then told me that she doesn't care if I leave the bar! Really terrible experience. Will NEVER return.
