If you want to have an outdoor group hang in Greenpoint, but you don’t want to deal with the massive crowds at Brooklyn Barge or Northern Territory, try The Springs. We aren’t saying it won’t be crowded - but it shouldn’t be as crowded. The huge backyard with trees and couches makes up most of the bar and is Palm Springs-themed, which is just a little bit cheesy. On the bright side, they allow dogs in their backyard, and you probably have at least one friend who will appreciate how photogenic this place is.
