Bars, Dive bars Greenpoint

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This Midwest-themed Greenpoint dive is the supergroup of bars, literally—owners include Hold Steady drummer Bobby Drake, Spoon bassist Rob Pope and former Freedom Fighters frontman Frank Bevan. The neighborhood hang is a low-key anthem about Minnesota—along with its name (referencing a major thoroughfare in Minneapolis), it features canned Midwestern brews like Goose Island and broadcasts Twins games on five flatscreens. Settle into a church-pew banquette for brats or hot dogs. The owners' musical roots are reflected throughout the space: Overhead lights are made from drum kits, while vintage '70s black-light posters line the walls of one bathroom and tour diaries from legendary roadie Hiro Tanaka cover another one.
