Palace Cafe

206 Nassau Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11222-3582 | Brooklyn | 718-383-9848

Location Description:

The interior reminds us of a particular brand of Jersey diner decor: Tudor-wood beamed motif, latticed windows, endearingly unwarranted chandeliers, predominantly dim. But Greenpoint's Palace Cafe is much, much more. A fully stocked dive bar, for starters, but it'd be prudent to come for the Monday night football special: $2 drafts and a complementary buffet. For this reason Giants fans make it hang out, but so do aging metal heads for the Judas Priest and Iron Maiden-stocked juke box. It's been gracing, and sometimes disgracing, the same corner since 1933, and now warm in hipster embrace, it looks to only benefit from rampant neighborhood gentrification.
