Bar on Manhattan Ave Greenpoint Bkln

gnocchi May 10, 2010 07:11 AM

A few weeks ago on a Saturday I was walking the length of Manhattan Ave from north to south. Somewhere north of Norman Avenue I noticed a pub on the east side of the street that had a blackboard sign out on the sidewalk advertising the availability of Dogfish Head Aprihop along with some other items. I couldn't stop to check it out because I had to meet up with some people further down towards Williamsburgh.

Anyone know what the name of this place might have been or general location on the Avenue?

    Maybe it was The Mark Bar at Green and Manhattan? That's got a real pub feel to it...even if it's not where you passed, I'd check it out anyway. It's a great place to drink.

      I think I saw The Mark Bar on the other (west) side of the street. I'll check it out when I get back there to look for the place I saw on the east side. But that was the general neighborhood I'm talking about, and there appeared to be no shortage of drinking places.

          i think you may be correct. I checked out the website and sure enough there's the chalkboard out on the sidewalk:

            I love The Habitat! Gets crowded fast, but worth a sit-down meal and of course the beer is fantastic. Friendly staff.
