We heard Brooklyn Barge Bar was coming to Greenpoint back in February, with the promise of a May 1 opening. So, what’s the hold up? Apparently the owners struggled with the local Community Board to obtain a liquor license, but thanks to encouraging letters from partners and the community, the floating bar-restaurant is officially allowed to serve booze!
Unlike your run-of-the-mill bars, Brooklyn Barge will offer cool water-based programs in the form of fishing, sailing, kayaking and more. And now that the ball is finally rolling, we’re hoping that the tentative mid-June opening is legit. 1 West St at Greenpoint Ave, Brooklyn (914-356-6809, brookylnbargebar.com).
