The great-granddaddy of bohemian Brooklyn bars is undoubtedly Union Pool. On any given night you’re bound to run into half of the people you’ve ever met in addition to spotting a starlet or local rock hero. With PBR being the official drink of Williamsburg, beer’s naturally cheap and real drinks won’t break the bank either. The photo booth is a definite draw, and the backyard’s huge space and wintertime bonfire/summertime fountain ensure that there’s always a crowd gathered. The indoors aren’t too shabby either, as the vintage detailing of the former pool supply shop still graces the walls and the bar is backed by a collection of resident cuties. Make like every other kid this side of Morgan Avenue—Unionize!
