North of Greenpoint Avenue, once-industrial spaces are being transformed into neighborhood bars and lounges. One of those spaces is t.b.d. Brooklyn, where the ‘lounge’ vibe is thrown off by a ping pong table and huge garage doors that open to the industrial buildings on Green Street.
Unlike some other old-school bars in the area, t.b.d. accepts cards at the bar, where beer starts at $ 5 and some cocktails are south of $ 10. But even though I love a competitive game of ping pong, I enjoy the beer garden the most. Called “the best backyard in Brooklyn,” its picnic tables and umbrellas underneath outdoor string lighting make it a great spot for t.b.d.’s cash-only grill that serves up burgers hot dogs, pickles and more.
Visit t.d.b. Brooklyn during happy hour, weekdays from 16:00 – 19:00, when $ 4 will get you a pint of one of 12 draft beers or a mixed drink with house liquor.
