Franklin Park Bar

618 St. John's Place Brooklyn, NY 11238 | Prospect Heights | 718-975-0196

Location Description:

By now Crown Heights is well-populated by the growing caste that was priced out of Williamsburg. Franklin Park was one of the Brooklyn neighborhood's first gentrifying bars and possibly integral in the migration of the hip. It's worth a longer subway ride, anyway. In the summer this bar and beer garden is lively and idyllic, picnic tables packed with creative young folk. It features a wide selection of local craft brews on tap, live music nights, DJ weekends, and a particularly popular monthly reading series. For sustenance you can order in from their partner restaurant Dutch Boy Burger.
