The immense dark-wood bar, bare-bones pool room and old-school jukebox attract an unpretentious crowd that’s more interested in drinking than in flirting. There are plenty of choice beers on tap, including Old Speckled Hen, Dentergens Wheat and local Six Point Brown Ale—all for a reasonable $5-or-so a pint. The Inn dates back to the 19th century; tie on a few and you may even see the ghost of Walt Whitman.

Hands down the coziest, loveliest bar in Boerum Hill. It's the place to go when you want to hunker down with a book to watch a snowstorm or head to for last call. Old-school bartenders who are no joke (i.e. sometimes a little gruff, but that's their charm), gorgeous high ceilings and a solid lineup of booze. The best.
