REDD'S TAVERN

Though the lacquered sports bar shines, the bartenders and "Sweet Child O' Mine" vibe remind me of my Poison-loving sister. REDD'S TAVERN would make more sense at the Jersey Shore, yet it sits mere minutes from Bedford Avenue, offering free popcorn, cheap beer, non-ironic "Iron Man" sing-alongs, a dearth of trucker caps, and a Dave Navarro doppelgänger whose band opened for Superdrag back in the day.
