A friend and I will be at the Bandshell tmrw for a Passion Pit concert...any good places (bar/grill type) for two twentysomethings to eat at beforehand (concert starts at 6). Your help is appreciated!

    I'd recommend 12th st bar and grill. The main entrance is on 8th ave, but they have a more relaxed bar on the 12th st side, between 8th ave and PPW. Nice vibe and not crazy expensive.

      down the hill on 9th (between 6th and 5th) is the Dram Shop which Ive heard tell some 20-somethings like for burgers and brew

        Perfect place for pre-concert is the Double Windsor, Prospect Park West and 16th Street. Definitely a 20-something hangout and great burgers, they also have stuff like ribs, fish tacos, other pubish food, great beer selection. Three minute walk to the bandshell and right across from the subway exit.

          I second Double Windsor, great place, good food and interesting beer selection, although I like 12th Street bar a lot too.

        Bar Toto. It is on corner of 6th Avenue and 11st Street. Cute place. Full bar, some outdoor seating and very good panini ($7 - $9). I am not so crazy about the rest of the menu (pizza, pasta). Walk straight up 11th street and you will be at entrance to bandshell.
