Rosemary's Greenpoint Tavern

188 Bedford Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11211-2904
(718) 384-9539
Cross Street: Between North Seventh Street and North Sixth Street

As it is getting harder to find dives that are not over-reviewed (the slowing of post speed on his website), we think that this one is a good find. While not grimy and has electronic games and whatchamahaveyas, it does have huge Styrofoam (or sometimes plastic) cups of cheap beer for $3.50 (probably 32oz or so). While that should be good enough, the space is a good one, not too crowded but not too empty, with tables on the side, a bar and games/jukebox in the back. While one does have to try hard to be hipster, its not as the hipsters are unfriendly stock, so the crowd is pretty laid back. All in all, a great stop around Bedford for a beer.

Decor (5/5) - faded posters and 70s style fixins. nice plastic decorations that are seasonal

Crowd (4/5) - Happy hipsters

Drinks (5/5) - They also have liquor, but... $3.50 beers!

Dive Factor (3/5) - Its too nice to be a real dive, but still a good option.
