Ultra-Casual Afternoon at Park Slope’s The Black Sheep Pub

Recently, I spent a very casual Sunday afternoon with a friend in Park Slope. We didn’t really have a plan in play, so we decided to walk the streets of the popular neighborhood to see what we could find. Maybe grab a bite to eat? Go for a drink? Check out a trendy boutique? The Park Slope world was, essentially, our oyster. Our non-committal journey brought us right to the doorstep of The Black Sheep Pub (428 Bergen St., 718.638.1109). Intrigued by the name, we decided to walk in and found a very large space full of tables, chairs and a jukebox. Seeing as it was a fairly sleepy Sunday, we felt as if we had the place to ourselves (although there were other patrons in the establishment). While there, we had a few brews and watched the World Cup on a large projection screen. The place also boasts plenty of bar food with a flare (think pulled pork sliders, empanadas, and pigs-in-a-blanket) plus traditional Irish grub. Happy Hour takes place daily until 6 p.m. and you can even get well drinks for $4 until 7 p.m. each day. The best part? The bar is right down the street from Barclays Center, making it the perfect spot for pre-game partying before heading to the venue for a concert or sporting event. There’s no website, which one staff member casually explained with "we're trying to keep it pretty divey.” So, for more information, check out the pub’s Facebook page.
