Hop aboard our South Brooklyn route for an Irish-themed adventure in celebration of St. Patrick’s day. You’ll make stops in Brooklyn Heights, Red Hook, and Sunset Park to visit a few fun Irish establishments along the way.

Stop #1

O’Keefe’s Bar & Grill

📍Pier 6

O’Keefe’s Bar & Grill has been serving Brooklyn Heights for 45 years and is a place where the community can come together. With 20 draft brews and a wide selection of bottles and cans you can enjoy local, foreign and domestic craft brews. Their unique list of speciality cocktails is sure to surprise and you can’t leave without trying one of their signature fresh squeezed orange or grapefruit crush drinks.

O’Keefe’s Bar & Grill – 62 Court St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

Stop #2

Sunny’s Bar

📍Red Hook

Opened in 1890 and going through various incarnations including a restaurant and a longshoremen’s hangout, it wasn’t until the 1990s that it became the beloved local mainstay helmed by the beatific, beatniky owner, Sunny, who greeted you warmly from beneath a mop of gray hair until he passed in 2016. It’s now, as Sunny used to say, “just a meeting place for folks — painters, writers, musicians, plumbers — who care about each other so much they don’t mind the trip.”

Irish Haven

📍Brooklyn Army Terminal

A Brooklyn institution since 1964, Irish Haven is an unpretentious, casual and familiar bar in Sunset Park. Immortalized as the setting for bar scenes in Martin Scorsese’s 2006 film The Departed, which won the Best Picture Oscar at the 79th Academy Awards. ‘The Haven’ to it’s regulars, offers something for everyone — inexpensive drinks, both a classic & Internet jukebox, pool table, & dart board.
