Clara’s is a sports bar in Bushwick, but it’s more for people who like to be sports-adjacent than for Islanders fans who yell “drop your gloves” at the TV every five minutes. There are TVs in the bar area and a projector in the back, but there’s also a pool table, and seating if you want to eat a $10 fried chicken sandwich with Old Bay fries.
