        Sorry - my reply was as unhelpful as your query was devoid of useful information about what you are looking for. what makes a bar "good" in your estimation (age of crowd, type of spriits/beer avialble) and what are you looking for in these "cool" eateries.

          Ok ok your right .. Well I'm not a skinny jean guy.. But those people don't bother me at all..most my crew. Are italian but NOT GUIDOS.. Ha.. We love a good sport bar.. But it's not necessary.. Good beers / bloody Marie's.. I like the whiskey brooklyn although it gets a bit BT at times.. Also like tasty food spots along the way.. SortA like Bedford ave is.. Ages 27 to 35.... And lastly girls!

        the upper portions of 5th ave in park slope, and court st (venturing over as far as henry) in carroll gardens both have high densities of food and drinking establishments . . . some of which i hear are frequented by women.

            Smith St which I think might have been the proto-trendy dining street for Brooklyn has plenty of bars and restos

              Smith st. ? North of 9th.. Would that be considered Carroll Gardens

                I think some in real estate refer to the area as Cobble Hill East as its the stretch below Atlantic. Things thin out when you get towards CG.

                I've done the Smith Street crawl. It's great and you don't have to look for a restaurant when you get hungry because as you stroll down the street from bar to bar, you can read all the menus in the windows of the restaurants.
