Bars are fun and it isn’t just because of the alcohol, but also about the overall atmosphere. I’m definitely a fan of my usual local and I can also appreciate kicking back in a new place once in a while. And when Mr. T said, “we should go to all the bars in Park Slope and then make a feature out of it for your blog” I thought that sounded pretty brilliant (I knew I was marrying a smart man). So that’s what we’re doing with a little something called The Bar Beat in Park Slope. This week we’re featuring Owl Farm. (Read all the details about The Bar Beat here)
Location: 297 9th St
Mr. T: I'll give it 3.5 bow ties. The beer selection was good, but it's not really my jam.
Jess: I'll give it 3 lips. I'd go again, but probably wouldn't go out of my way for it.
Quality of Food/Selection: No food. Though there are a few places within spitting distance to grab a bite before or after.
Quality of Drink/Selection: Stellar beer selection. I believe we counted 28 on tap. No specialty cocktails that we could see, but a full bar.
Accessibility: It’s less than a block from the 4th Ave/9th St R& FG stop.
Price: Pretty on par with the usual Park Slope joint. Beers were about $5-$6. We spent $12 on our two tasty beers.
Happy hour: Yes. They also have Session Black Lager for $3 all the time.
Service: Good. The bartender was attentive, but not overly chatty and we didn’t have to wait too long to get our drinks even though it was fairly busy.
Miscellaneous Fact: This awesome sign.
Atmosphere: Hipster central. Definitely not a sports bar in any way. It has more of a chill out kind of feel – you’re definitely not going to come here to get drunk and rowdy with your pals. I think it’s good if you want to have some beers with friends or maybe even a date.
