chill vibe – Patio is a cool loungey place to hang out - a lot of bars with the word "lounge" in them aren't really a lounge but this one is. the garden is lovely on cooler summer nights and the sangria is delicious. the bartenders are all very friendly and the place has an overall relaxed vibe that I find welcoming in a no-attitude but still a nice bar way. The hummus platter rocks too but they don't always have everything on their menu so if you are going there to eat something you might want to call in advance. The only downside is they do NOT serve liquor, only beer and wine/sangria/champagne. They make up for this with a menu of inventive drinks made with the stuff they are allowed to serve. check it out for yourself sometime.
Fun Discovery – The place was introduced to me by a friend when I visited from San Francisco a few months ago. I loved its chillness and ambiance right away, not to mention the kick-ass sakerinha's. Now that I've moved here, I'll definitely be back and tell others about it.
A serene green setting, plus beachy cocktails and comfy couches. – The Scene
Green is the thing here, from the plants inside and the half-moon lime garnish on each clever concoction, to the grapevines climbing the walls of the patio out back. Slopers in vintage tees and flip-flops lounge on the clean-lined furniture, propping their feet up on tables or dangling them out the windowless front on warm evenings. It's a perfect perch to watch the neighborhood's colorful traffic.
Finally a bar with something to look at: Three Japanese fighting fish swim under tiny spotlights, and a manga comic sprawls across one entire wall. Gracious bartenders stick a pink straw in each drink and make the most of the lack of liquor license, with sangria, sake and champagne cocktails. Try a white-wine margarita or mango-sake driver for a shot of July to get you through the colder months.
What a Fun Pllace – Great happy hour specials and a wonderful selection of beers on tap (not to mention the selection of bottled ones)
Bartenders are attentive and friendly. Crowd is diverse, from the die-hard trivia fans on Mondays to the diversity of Park slope on Saturday late night. Can't beat this great addition to 5th Ave.
Where is the food? – Went there thinking we could get some snacks and drinks (based on their website, which includes the menu). The bartender told my friend that they were out of everything except olives! We had to order in from Press195. Come on, if you have a menu posted on your website, at least actually SERVE some of the food you have listed!
Slow for after work... – I went to this bar for the first time yesterday for their happy hour. The place was pretty empty but I'm not sure why. The Happy Hour specials are pretty good and they have a wide selection of not commonly found beers.
I would recommend the after-work crowd discover this place...
I LOVE this place! – Patio has a great vibe about it that makes it worth venturing out to Brooklyn for! The people are cool, the drinks are awesome, while affordable, and the atmosphere is perfect! I definitely recommend it for a night out with friends- it's all about the vibe!
Park Slope's coolest hangout – Every time I walk down Fifth Ave. there's a new bar or cafe to check out, but this is the one I always return to. Yummy sakhurinas & sangria, great atmosphere, super friendly service, and groovy cool peeps to talk to. This is Park Slope's best kept secret.
perfect place to chill or party – the best thing about patio lounge is how far your money will go. happy hours are great but even afterwards, all the delicious beers (like lindemann's raspberry lambic), mixed drinks (try the sakerinha), and food dishes (mmmmediterranean platter) you and your friends order will add up to a totally affordable price. i've taken a bunch of friends there and they all love it too. we've been able to enjoy the hip and aesthetically pleasing atmosphere inside AND the ridiculously warm and comfy outside patio with its giant mushroom-sized heaters! the wknd deejays have been good all four times i've heard them. and the new (i think) soju special on tuesdays is a nice time, too. if you don't know what soju is, go ask the bartender and she'll have a shot with you. then, you will buy your own bottle or two....
Good ole time – I moved out of the neighborhood so I hadn't been back to Patio Lounge since the summer. They were always so much fun and packed back then but I didnt know what it was going to be like now that the weather had turned cold. Actually, its really nice! They have heaters in the backyard so you can still smoke in comfort and they made the inside real nice and cozy with the same good music and good dj's. And they have trivia nights on mondays! If I had known this sooner... I think I'll be coming back to my old neighborhood from Manhattan a lot more often now...
