The Levee lies in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This sentance strikes fear into many souls, knowing that Billyburg is well known for its (cough cough, Hipster) scene. What? I didn’t say the H word. Fear not. This bar is truly fantastic. Great layout with U-shaped bar, big booth to fit your own party, a pool table and a outdoor area with uber sized connect four game attached to the wall. Owners Susan and Howard are truly some of the nicest people I’ve meet and provide their patrons with an amazing beer selection and free cheese balls at the bar.
I, living in Queens find it hard to bring myself to travel to BK that often, but with bars like The Levee there, I defiantly see myself making that trip more often. This will be a repeat visit for anyone who goes there.
PS. They serve Black Label beer there, a personal favorite of mine.
