Sunny's Bar In Red Hook

253 Conover St. Brooklyn, NY 11231 | Red Hook | 718-625-8211

Location Description:

To get to Sunny's in Red Hook, ye must take the F train to Smith Street, hop on the B77 bus, and hike several blocks. It's worth the trek. Sunny's feels like the middle of someone's living room, and no wonder; Sunny Balzano, the bar's long-haired namesake, thinks of it as an extension of his home next door. His great-grandfather opened the bar in 1890 as a haven for shipyard workers, and model ships still line the shelves. Bands, often bluegrass, play impromptu sets, completing the laid-back sailor vibe.
