Tip Top is a dive bar in Bed-Stuy, although we feel weird calling it a dive. You expect dives to be grimy and smelly and maybe even a little unfriendly. But this place isn’t like that. It feels like someone’s basement but with a bar, and it looks like it hasn’t changed in forty years (probably because it hasn’t). It’s also owned by a family that also works there. So if you feel like sitting in an un-fancy room filled with friendly vibes and strings of off-season christmas lights, come here. Have a beer and play something on the jukebox. There are some good options.
