  • Patio/Sidewalk Dining
You don't really belong in a neighborhood until you've become a fixture at the local watering hole. If you live in Fort Greene, that means finding your way to Alibi, a garden- level lair where Pratt students gather for games of pool, regulars occasionally become bartenders, and most drinkers know each other well enough to carry on conversations that pick up the next time they meet at the bar. Nothing about this place is fancy — with the exception of the jukebox — so don't come here looking for anything that can be construed as "craft." Instead, settle in for a shot and a beer, and strike up a conversation with your neighbor, if they don't engage you first.
