I Started coming here a few years ago after seeing this on Draft Magazine’s “Top 100 Beer Bar” list. It’s a small and intimate bar with about 20 seats that line the narrow bar. It can get a little bit crammed, but if you’re lucky, you can probably get one of the 10 seats at a table in the front that can also double up for some great people watching.
Proletariat shows that a small, well curated tap list is light years better than the high-tap-volume bars in mid-town. I think they capped their at 15, but you’re always sure to find something interesting. There area also options for half pours, so you can probably explore the entire menu in a nice long session.
The atmosphere is nice with old school hip-hop playing and old school tattoo art all over the length of the wall. They don’t serve food, but you can bring some in from one of the restaurants on the street. This place is worth a visit if you’re in the village.
