On the edge of McGolrick park in Greenpoint, Goldie’s feels like an off-the-strip Vegas bar from the 1970’s, except instead of a crowd wearing skintight leather and five-inch platforms, it’s filled with Greenpoint locals drinking beer-and-shot combos and eating free goldfish. There are big leather booths if you’re with a crowd, a u-shaped bar perfect for a first meeting with a stranger, and a pool table for making new friends. Also: happy hour (till 8pm on weekdays) involves $6 margaritas. Goldie’s is that rare combination of fun and low-key that makes it easy to hang here for hours.
