Abe’s Pagoda Bar is a new spot in Bushwick that feels like a cross between a tiki bar and a pirate ship. It’s a big space decorated with red lanterns, model ships, and black and white photographs, and it has a room in the back with pool tables and a projector that may or may not be showing Baywatch when you stop by. There are plenty of tables and booths, so it’s great for a night out with a group, and if you get hungry, you can snack on skewers, okonomiyaki fries, and rice bowls. Make a trip out the next time you feel like having the sort of Saturday night that continues into Sunday morning.
