Not many lesbian bars are as welcoming to men, gay or straight, as Ginger’s is. Two rooms and a spacious garden accommodate everyone, even decompressing softball teams from nearby Prospect Park. Small tables are a good place to chat and listen to the juke; the back room draws cue-carrying pool sharks, but skill-free shooters are welcome, too.

I felt so at home with the staff and nothing was too much trouble, great bar, great owner and great staff, what more could one ask for. Best of luck Gingers xx
Sheila, the owner, made this an enduring staple of the neighborhood, welcoming the queer community and allies with open arms. She knows how to run a bar and make everyone feel welcome.
Just the best bar in Brooklyn. The owner Sheila is Irish to her bones, with a heart the size of the country she left to entertain NYC.
Chilling daytime-ish yard outside! Late night music/dancing inside. For me Gingers is a down to earth, very cool neighborhood bar.
