A review of Brooklyn Eats in Brooklyn's Clinton Hill

Located at 474 Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill, Brooklyn Eats, despite the name, is a bar. The main bar area is in front followed by seating area and then a room all the way in the back with a ping pong table.  Brooklyn Eats offers two tap beers and 18 bottled beers.  Full bar also available.  Food is mostly standard bar food, at affordable prices (particularly the lunch specials).  Be sure to include Brooklyn Eats on your next NYC pub crawl along Myrtle Avenue!

A review of Fifty Paces in Manhattan's East Village

Located at 413 East 12th Street in Manhattan’s East Village, Fifty Paces is wine bar offering 18 wines by bottle/glass, along with a small selection of beer (no hard alcohol).  Same layout as Terroir (the wine bar that held this space previously). For food, Fifty Paces offers small plates and large plates; Cheese, charcuterie and several artisan chocolates also available.  This is a great spot and we look forward to a return visit.

A review of Forrest Point in Brooklyn

Located at 970 Flushing Avenue on the Williamsburg/Bushwick border, Forrest Point represents another sign of gentrification in this section of Brooklyn.  Forrest Point is a bar/restaurant (though we think more bar than restaurant), located in what feels like a former garage space.  Forrest Point offers 7 tap beers and several house cocktails.  Food menu is intriguing, with brunch offered during weekends.  Outdoor seating is available in good weather for prime people watching along Flushing Avenue.

Happy First Saturday of March!

Our favorite non-holiday random calendar day of the year! The arrival of the First Saturday of March is very meaningful to us at Pub Crawl NYC. Though the calendar still says winter, March marks the end of the super-cold, long, dark winter months of December, January and February. Spring (and good pub crawling weather) is just ahead.

And if you’re looking for a pub crawl today, here’s one option across the Hudson River in Hoboken, NJ, sponsored by
