Ponyboy is cocktail bar in Greenpoint where you can book a table and have a full dinner. But we wouldn’t recommend that, seeing as how the menu is confusingly broad (sashimi, hummus, homemade Doritos, etc.) and the food is pretty unremarkable. What you really want to do is come here after 10pm, when this place turns into a full-on bar, with a big dance floor in the back. Just be aware that it gets extremely crowded on weekends.
