It doesn’t take long to figure out why this Greenpoint bar is called Blackout. The black leather banquettes, black pressed-tin ceiling, black bar and scuffed black hardwood floor all create an aura of hipster cool, complemented with a soundtrack of au courant indie hits. The crowd looks like they’ve all been shopping at the owners’ other business, avant garde boutique Oak. The booze ranges from cheap cans of Schlitz to red and white wines by the glass. DJs occasionally hit the decks for dance parties of all types--gay, indie, R&B and pretty much anything else you could imagine.
