Welcome to Freddy’s

This Brooklyn institution carries a history stretching back to prohibition, and features live events, late night food, great prices, multiple rooms, on & on.

Not Just a Bar, A Community

Performances

Each night, in the discrete Back Room, a rotating cast of musicians, comedians, film buffs, and assorted literary types fill the air with the kind of crazy-quilt anything-goes vibe that New York City used to be famous for.

Art

For over 20 years, Freddy’s Backroom has provided an alternative exhibition space for local art. The mostly monthly shows share space with nightly events and performances. Artists on display range from the burgeoning to the well established.

On permanent exhibition throughout the bar, are the mesmerizing and popular “repurposed video constructions” of video artist and Freddy’s co-owner Donald O’Finn.
