The dive meets frat boy decor is nothing to write home about, but the free brick over pizza (which is actually REALLY good) makes it hard to pass up.
NY Mag says:
Inside what was once the Galleria pizza place, this bar’s red walls and Romanesque details don’t quite gel, yet one crucial feature remains intact: the arched, wood-burning oven. Because of the owners’ sensational idea of serving free personal pizzas every night until 3:30am, this unremarkable joint has turned into a loveable hangout that’s a great first or last barhop stop. Young and old Williamsburg folk congregate along the bar, in the maroon, open-angle vinyl booths, and around the green pool table. A photo booth, shuffleboard, and Big Buck Hunter Pro game in back provide entertainment, as do special events throughout the week (trivia on Mondays, comedy open mic on Tuesdays, and bingo on Wednesdays). A selection of 16 draft beers complements the delicious crisp-crust pies, which are on the house with every drink; toppings like pepperoni, artichokes and flavorful sweet sausage are available for an extra $1 each. .
