This Flushing Avenue spot was once voted Brooklyn’s “scariest bar,” but judging by the reports from most people who actually went there, that was just some nu Brooklyn hype: it was just a dive with bars on the windows, a chintzy sign, and, you know, strippers. It used to be the only Clinton Hill bar without a bunch of Pratt kids in it.

  • 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.
