Welcome to Freddy’s

This Brooklyn institution carries a history stretching back to prohibition. We feature live music, cult video & art exhibits, late night food, great prices, multiple cozy rooms and comfy outdoor spaces. Not to forget, our African Albino Water Frogs, Bluto & Burley, and our Mascott Billy the Cat, that no-one can outdrink!

Upcoming Events

“Freddy’s has been praised by the press as one of Brooklyn’s most important cultural hubs and an underground mecca for creativity. Each night, a rotating cast of musicians, comedians, film buffs, and assorted literary types fill the air with the kind of anything goes vibe that New York City used to be famous for.?” ~ Best Of- Brooklyn Paper
 

We have a suggested 2-drink minimum for  Backroom performances.

Freddy’s is my favorite bar in Brooklyn! Amazing vibe and decor! Great happy hour and bar food with full kitchen. Open patio in the summer, frequent events from films to bands, etc. Incredible art and video collage on display. And the bartenders always have a great playlist. The best!
