21. The Subway Bar

Neighborhood: Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Address: 27 Metropolitan Ave.
Website: n/a

Not to be confused with Manhattan's Subway Inn, Subway Bar sits directly above an entrance to the Metropolitan Avenue subway stop. It used to be bigger, with a pool table and ski ball game, but now it's even divier, with nothing but a sticky bar and one of those digital play-anything-in-the-world jukeboxes to keep your attention (that and the booze). Subway's got PBR for cheap, but it's as far from the proto-Williamsburg hipster bar as you can get, with a bathroom that might be the most disgusting in the city now that Mars Bar is closed.
