6. Kokie’s
Many people don’t realize the name of Williamsburg’s erstwhile coke bar was actually spelled with a K, but that’s because who would remember such a pesky detail from a night out here? I never made it out to Kokie’s myself, but when I was in college, I knew guys who’d travel all the way from Kensington.

  • Thanks to real estate developers, greedy landlords, Bloomberg, and the hipster gentrification.

  • I can’t believe The Gallery on McDonald avenue that used to be around since the late 30’s or early 40’s didn’t make the cut! Great dive bar, great bar period! Gone over a year now. And yes dive bars are a thing of the past thanks to hipsters and yuppies! Blahhhhh! Very sad whats happening to Brooklyn.
