QUESTION: “Cool” Area Near Prospect Park↓
Q: Is there a "cool" area (similar to the williamsburg/bushwick feel) anywhere near prospect park? I love the nightlife scene in wburg, but want to be closer to nature at my next apartment. Alibi in Fort Greene attracts students and neighborhood locals alike.
Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens offers a good amount of nightlife with a nice amount of tamed nature. Wing Bar is a great spot for cheap wings and beer, Bar Great Harry offers an enormous drink selection, and Brooklyn Social offers up an old Italian feel but with interesting and delicious cocktails and snacks. For a more youthful "hipster" feel you could spend the night out in Fort Greene or Clinton Hill, which boasts some really beautiful old houses and the park, as well as Pratt art school. Hanson Dry in Clinton Hill offers a low key vibe with a fifties style and The Alibi in Fort Greene attracts students and neighborhood locals alike.
