Tip-Top Bar and Grill

432 Franklin Ave. New York, NY 11238 | Brooklyn | 718-857-9744

Location Description:

It's always Christmas at Bed-Stuy's Tip-Top, where twinkling lights and tinsel line the ceilings, even though the windows are reinforced with iron bars. For 30 years, it operated as an after-hours spot without a license. But a go-ahead from the State Liquor Authority hasn't watered down the mixed drinks, made with just a few splashes of soda. Tip-Top is in the basement of a townhouse, and only a buzzer will get you through the locked doors.
