Jackie's 5th Amendment, Park Slope
To be clear, this isn't the kind of dive where some bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young owner thought it'd be nice and quaint to slap a bunch of car bumpers and suspiciously fresh-looking graffiti on the walls and call it good. Jackie's is the real, no-frills deal. So much so that last winter, they petitioned the United States government to secede from Park Slope
, which has changed drastically over the past few decades, while Jackie's hasn't changed at all—it's still home to a dimly lit back room full of rickety card tables, a $10 bucket special of those tiny little Budweiser bottles, and bartenders who aren't putting up with anyone's shit. You haven't really visited a place until you've visited one of its best, oldest dives, and here, that'd be Jackie's.
