Brooklyn

5th Avenue Bars

By Denise Oliveira

As the temperature finally rises in New York, so does our desire to be outdoors with a cold drink. Most likely, your apartment didn’t come with a huge patio where you can entertain your friends, so your best bet is a neighborhood bar with outdoor space. Today we’re introducing you to five bars along Park Slope’s 5th Avenue that have just that: Patios where you can hang out with your favorite people and favorite beverage.

Commonwealth, 497 5th Avenue

Highlights: Free popcorn and Wi-Fi. If you want to head out even before dusk and get some work or reading done out on their patio, you won’t be the only one.

Skylark, 477 5th Avenue

Highlights: You can bring your vegetarian friends along and they won’t starve. Their veggie dumplings are $7. There’s also a Globetrotters pinball machine in the back. They have few outdoor tables though, so arrive early if you want one.

Highlights: The backyard at this gay bar is gorgeous. There’s bingo on Sundays, and every Friday is “Singles Nite” starting at 9pm, with a $5 “sassy pink pusszy cat” cocktail.
