It’s all about the locals at this lovable dump, where a greeting—“Yo, Richie, looking good tonight!” —goes up each time a regular enters. From a barstool by the large window, offset by a curved glass wall, you can watch the East River flow by in the distance. And maybe Richie and his crew will invite you to join their conversation.

I've always been a fan of Brooklyn dive bars, and Montero's fulfills that quota. One thing most people don't know, Montero's does karaoke on Thursday-Saturday nights. The only catch? This cash-only establishment requires you buy a drink ($5-$8, this is a dive after all) before you get a song ticket. Reasons I love karaoke here: you'll see some exceptional singers and drunk birthday parties, a wide variety of drinkers tend to huddle up at Montero's on the weekend. And those weary singers out there- there are ALWAYS people in the crowd to join in with "only the good die young" or "like a virgin" when you don't feel like making your solo debut.
