Brooklyn Ice House

318 Van Brunt St

Brooklyn, NY 11231

Some 50 beers are served at this hoppin’ tavern with a dive feel on Van Brunt Street, outfitted with leather banquettes, distressed wood panelling, and chalkboard-walled bathrooms. The space’s previous incarnation as a BBQ restaurant lives on in the signature pulled pork sandwich, which amounts to a simple pile of smoky pork on a hamburger bun. Brooklyn Ice House's food menu features a list of non-BBQ favorites, too: bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed hot dogs and greasy cheeseburgers are served in plastic baskets with a side of fries, standard or sweet potato. Get a beer and bourbon combo and take it out to the backyard where a fire pit complements your warming shot.
