Top nightclub recommendations from locals

Bar

“If Crown Heights has a neighborhood bar, it’s currently Crown Inn. This place is a pub, but not a sleepy one. Weekends are, in fact, very loud and pretty crowded. The crowd skews a little older than a place like Friends and Lovers or Franklin Park, however, and that means it doesn’t get as stupid. (No one’s going to ask you for a light while holding a lighter then trip into a wall.) It’s a good place to drink with friends, and you could even meet a Tinder date here. It’s dark enough for that.”

Nightclub

“Speaking of Friends and Lovers, it’s a mess. But sometimes you want that. All of these bars serve a different purpose, and the purpose of this place is to have a few too many drinks and dance. There are two rooms here and, on weekends, the back room turns into a dance party with a rotating DJ. Expect people fresh out of college as well as the types of people who still feel like they’re fresh out of college. Just know that it’s cash-only and they might charge a cover.”

Restaurant
“Formerly "Cafe Forte", this excellent cafe is actually a restaurant with full bar that isn't nearly as crowded as its neighbors because it's just off the main drag. Leather couches, hardwood floors, trendy music playing. Delicious food, friendly service.”

Bar
“Not much nightlife around here, but that's why it's quiet. The only one nearby is rather chill and frequented by locals, but they're all very nice.”
