It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that it’s in Park Slope: the key to a kid-friendly bar, after all, is not only that ownership is cool with having little ones running around but also that your fellow alcohol-swilling patrons don’t really care. This spot offers a relaxed atmosphere, 25 beers on tap, and three bocce lanes. The food is simple enough for even the pickiest kid, with the added bonus that its lack of culinary ambition will keep away the kind of food-and-drink snobs that would totally be pissed at having kids underfoot. Space to stretch out, decent food, and good cheap beer lets you forget you’re a parent for a little while. We’re assuming that’s why parents drink.
