Step into Gramps and you are sure to be reminded of a quintessential hippie joint tucked away somewhere in Brooklyn. Had Wynwood selected its most dully lit venue, Gramps would be an easy winner. Found on North West 24th Street, this Wynwood inn promises a raucous night, complete with live gigs and pitchers of chilled beer. Guzzlers also love its sprawling patio area adorned with old-school furniture and TVs playing some cult movies. While live music performances are always fun, alligator wrestling on rare occasions is also what keeps regular guests coming back to Gramps.

Some of the dishes focus on fresh seafare, so expect creative combinations of Whole Fish and gremolata with watermelon radish, Risotto with tiger shrimp and a Mussels and Clams specials served with chorizo, coconut and saffron.

The decor is stylish, with industrial chic elements and exposed brick accents.
Abbey Brewing Company serves house beers along with imported beers, bottled ales, ports and wines. Most of the drinks are hard to find in America, but definitely worth the trouble.
