Ok, my headline is a lie. Actually, Pete's in my favorite bar in Brooklyn. Everything a bar should have: a place for music (which is always free), a big back porch, enough space so that it never feels crowded, a loyal enough clientele that it never seems empty. If you're really snooty about your drinks, or are really concerned with maintaining your image, this is probably not the place for you. but if you just want to get a pint or two, stand a chance of meeting nice, interesting people, maybe see some music, and not have to yell over the juke box to have a conversation, then you might just like Pete's.
I wish I was better at keeping the secret.
