Pig Beach slings delightful, succulent meats dressed to the nines in exquisite sauces to hordes of 'cue-craving Brooklynites in an expansive backyard patio and sprawling, 7,000-square foot warehouse. Outside, the smoke pit rotates rib racks, turkey breasts, whole chickens, and — of course — hulking slabs of hog until tender and falling off the bone. Drizzle your meaty order in one of the kitchen’s glossy sauces (brown sugar-honey, hatch vinegar bbq) and pair it with fellow comfort foods like mac and cheese covered in crushed Goldfish crackers and house-made sweet and sour pickles. On weekends you may need to stake out space at one of the communal picnic tables, and wade through dog- and stroller-wielding families, but the grub is well worth it. Did we mention you can also score decadent, cheese-smothered burgers and buffalo-doused wings off the grill? But the deciding factor might be the bar’s spiked slushes (frosé, blue Hawaiian, lemon shandy) and boozy milkshake lineup.

This was my local summertime hangout last year. The drinks were awesome, the vibes were unlike any other place in the city during the summer, and the food was to die for. Its all outdoors, where one side is the area where you receive food and the bar is in the opposite side.Located on the Gowanus Canal, this area used to be known as Swan Dive (which was when I first came by this place) Wait times for food weren't too long and portions were plenty. I recommend this place for anyone.
