In our heads, most people’s idea of a fun night out in Park Slope plays out in the backyard of brownstone. But ever since this gay bar from the people behind C’mon Everybody opened in July 2020, the number of exciting things you can do late at night in this neighborhood has drastically increased. Good Judy has two floors with several booths, banquettes, and high-top tables where you can take jello shots and speak several octaves higher than usual with a group of friends. Plus, their event calendar is packed with weekly drag shows, watch parties for Rupaul’s Drag Race, karaoke nights, and other events where you’ll likely end up embarrassing yourself on the dancefloor. So if you want to have a good time in the area and don’t already have a friend with a backyard nearby, head to Good Judy.
