Union Pool

484 Union Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11211 | Brooklyn | 718-609-0484

Location Description:

Union Pool feels a bit trashy, like your hillbilly uncle's about to hook the TV up to the truck's engine to make it work. The large outdoor area, with a central that converts into an admirably dangerous fire pit come winter, is a top spot for Billyburg mingling. Now with a taco cart, too!
