Brooklyn Nightlife: Best Neighborhood Dive Bar in Greenpoint
Despite its massive doors and the fact that it has no sign to announce its presence out front, The Capri Social Club is a Greenpoint neighborhood staple for many locals. The bar has been around since the late 1800's and many of its current features and motif dates back to at least the 1950's. Such as a vintage dark wood shelf clock and the old iron-clad cash register. Enjoyed by locals for their reasonably priced beers and a welcoming atmosphere for friends to have good time.
The constant onslaught of trendy watering holes in Greenpoint makes it easy to overlook some of the more discreet bars that have been here for decades. Capri Social Club, located on the corner of Calyer and Lorimer Streets, is unknown to many, but the bar opened over 100 years ago and has been a neighborhood staple since.
