Donald O'Finn, Matt Kimmett and Matt Kuhn, bartenders of the late Freddy's Bar & Backroom, resurrect the scrappy cult favorite, which was evicted from Prospect Heights by the Atlantic Yards project. The no-frills saloon--now located in Sunset Park--is retrofitted with booths, a 1940s red mahogany bar and the graffiti-etched bathroom walls salvaged from the original. Old regulars will find comfort in the eclectic live music offerings and 75¢ beertinis (that's Budweiser in a martini glass with a pretzel garnish). Newer patrons should appreciate the expanded beer selection (12 taps instead of five) and pub-grub offerings (burgers, hot wings and kielbasa).
