BROOKLYN HEIGHTS, NEW YORK –
Arsenal fans beware – Floyd, NY is the resident bar of the New York Tottenham Hotspur Fan Club, and weekend mornings find the quaint rustic space full of rowdy hooligans in blue and white sipping breakfast pints and singing obnoxiously about a team of Robbie Keanes.
When it’s not Spur headquarters, though, this welcoming, wood-paneled tavern hosts eclectic, laid-back mobs of local bearded hipsters and after-work neighborhood everymen dedicated to the mellow vibe and reasonable prices.
Classic beer and tobacco ads, black-and-white photos of mustached generals, and a mismatched collection of time-worn furnishings make up most of the décor near the bar, where rockers and construction workers alike gather to sip whiskey and sample beer cheese, or laze on vintage sofas in the small, book-lined alcove up front.
Besides its cheap beer, fine bourbons, and footballer regulars, the bar’s other claim to fame is its dedication to bocce ball. Although the indoor clay courts play host to competitive league matches, regulars can more frequently be found boisterously tossing out balls and yanking beers from their Crap-U-Copia, a $15 bucket of six Z-grade beers.
A simple, cozy hangout that doesn’t put on airs, Floyd is a great choice for anyone looking to trade in the cocktail bar scene for an old-fashioned good time.
Brooklyn hipsters, rockers, neighborhood workers, and Tottenham fans, 20s to 30s.
