The Trash Bar

The Trash Bar
256 Grand St. at Roebling
Brooklyn, NY 11211
Phone: (718) 599-1000

A bar set up to be a dive, but don't tell the bikers and sweaty rockers that. The highlight of a recent evening in the area, Trash offers seating in the form of old car seats (upstairs front seats, in the downstairs "lounge", back seats). The jukebox is excellent, 80s, Willie Nelson, hard rock metal - pretty comprehensive. $2 hot dogs aren't that great a deal but the free tater-tots every hour are. $2 PBR, cheap well drinks, and other cheap drinks makes one wax nostalgic for those 7th grade lunches eating army grade cafeteria tater tots and sipping on cheap booze (some of us went to NY public school). There is live music in the back, for those who don't care for a lack of high pitched ringing in the ear. Friendly hipsters, some biker and some rockers make the crowd interesting.

Decor (4/5) - Car seats, license plates, general roadside theme gets good points. Plus, car seats are pretty comfy

Crowd (4/5) - Nice mix, not too crowded, not too empty. Some counting on the free tater tots for dining, some hard-core drinkers

Drinks (3/5) - Average strength, fair prices

Dive Factor (3.5/5) - The faux dive turned into a pretty real one, though points are lost for not rock-bottom drink prices and general friendly atmosphere
