McSorley's Old Ale House

McSorley's is a Cooper Union landmark that first opened sometime around the Civil War. It is one of the oldest continuously operating bars in the city. McSorley's serves two kinds of beer, McSorley's Lager and McSorley's Cream Stock Ale, and they are served two mugs at a time. Inside, you'll find sawdust on the floor and historic bric-à-brac alongside photos and news clippings. The menu is simple, with appetizers such as hearty cheese plates. Just be sure to keep the pub's centuries-old motto in mind: "Be Good or Be Gone!"

Ear Inn

This pub is one of the oldest bars in the city. The house itself was built prior to 1817 and is named after its owner, former slave and revolutionary war hero, James Brown. Mr. Brown originally sold tobacco to sailors before embarking on the docks right outside the door where the Hudson came ashore. Over the last century, it has lived a precarious existence slinging drinks due to developers and the constant maintenance of this almost two century-old house. The house is a relic of yesteryear and though the interior decor has changed due to zoning requirements in the city, there is history galore in the structure, as old jugs that date from 1870 and memorabilia are displayed throughout. Some locals still call the bar the "Green Door" due to the fact that before the "Bar" sign was painted over to show "Ear" and the door was the only viable moniker everyone knew. The place was originally a haunt for sailors, and several ghost stories are associated with the establishment making it something of a local legend. The kitchen offers the usual Irish/American pub fare with a few brews on tap. A true New York City bar, this is a great place to hang out with friends and enjoy a few pints.

Sunny's Bar

Sunny's Bar has been around for decades, a favorite of Red Hook locals and even some Manhattanites who travel all the way to Brooklyn. The place is your typical neighborhood dive bar, without any frills. The drinks are cheap, the decor unpretentious with knick-knacks collected over the years being displayed. The place is swarming with friendly faces, young hipsters and some older ones who have been regulars for many years. There is a high stool bar as you enter, an old kitchen with a long table that is now used by patrons, an outdoor area for smokers and also a room with a band playing. Patrons are free to pick the instrument of their choice and join in!

Brooklyn Ice House

Perfect for casual drinking, Brooklyn Ice House is one of the best hangout places in Red Hook. Famous among locals, it serves decent brews, along with some delicious pulled pork. Most of the seating being outdoors, their patio has wooden tables, iron chairs and a small garden that makes for a perfect ambiance. Cheap food and cheaper booze is what you will find here. The Brooklyn Ice House is for those who love to drink, while listening to music and chatting with friends. Drop by, to blend with the cool crowd and take in the divey ambiance of this place.

Molly's Pub & Restaurant Shebeen

This fun but relaxed Irish pub, complete with Tudor ceilings, iron chandeliers and sawdust on the floors, is a favorite among locals and one of New York City's finest spots to have a pint of Guinness beer. The crowd is very friendly, and the bar is staffed by genuine Irish folk. There are occasionally Irish football matches (soccer to all you Yankees) on the television.

Fat Cat Billiards

Located in a windowless, subterranean space in Greenwich Village, Fat Cat provides its guests with a wide range of gaming entertainment options such as ping pong, foosball, chess, checkers, shuffleboard and billiards. This is easy-going place is cheap, gritty, smoky and packed with locals and students, which is exactly how an authentic billiard hall should be. If getting dressed up to play pool is more your style, you would probably be happier at the multitude of fancier pool halls in the city. Fat Cat also has the distinction of being named as New York's best pool hall by New York Magazine in 2013.
