In the Neighborhood
Museums & Galleries
An unparalleled resource for Brooklyn-area glass artists, Urban Glass not only offers classes for beginners and experienced artists alike on techniques like glass blowing, sculpting, glass staining and glass bead-making; the art center also exhibits innovative glasswork, and the gift shop stocks handmade glassware and jewelry, all created by working artists and artisans.
Brooklyn Public House
A local priest blessed this candy store-turned-watering hole when it opened in February 2009, and since then Fort Greene locals have been flocking there to pray to the beer gods while downing everything from microbrews to international bottles such as Singha from Thailand and Jever from Germany.
Die Stammkneipe/Der Schwarze Kölner
Modeled after the traditional German beer hall, this spot offers 18 different German microbrews on tap, as well as 30 bottled beers and a menu of snacks like soft pretzels topped with mustard or Nutella, and currywurst (German sausage sandwiches covered in curry ketchup) to fill your stomach.
Lulu and Po
General Tso's sweetbreads, grilled octopus with mint cilantro jalapeno sauce, chicken liver and pancetta pate, bone marrow tacos, fish crudo served on pickled peaches, the savory Sardinian snack pani frattau, and roasted pork belly with red pepper relish are just some of the inventive, thoughtful small plates served up at this cozy bistro.
