Gowanus Yacht Club:
There is a popular school of thought, especially in NYC’s outer boroughs, that all you really need to have a good time in summer is a picnic table, a cold beer, and a hot dog. That’s exactly what you’ll find at this tiny, nautically themed beer garden (which everyone knows really means “pavement”) with the ironic name—that and a lot of bodies, as the theory certainly holds true here. The festive atmosphere often borders on collegiate as the young and hip of the neighborhood (and beyond, as the bar is right on the F line) down cheap pitchers of watery beer, pausing only to stumble downstairs to the dark unisex toilet. The good old days are just a $2 can of PBR away.
