Skinny Dennis is a honkey-tonk-themed dive bar, and it’s where you go to stand around and drink cheap beer with friends in Williamsburg. They also have live music sometimes, so check the schedule if that’s what you’re looking for. Expect this place to be packed at peak hours, however, and take note of the little blue-and-white paper cups people are carrying around. These contain a slushy, alcoholic coffee beverage. By all means, order one.

Lucky Dog is a dog-friendly bar on Bedford Ave in Williamsburg. It’s on the divier side, but they have a good beer selection and a little backyard.

Iona is a normal-seeming bar in the middle of Williamsburg with a nice backyard that’s almost the size of the bar itself.
