Angry Wade's

Sports Bar

in Brooklyn: Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens & Red Hook

To experience a gritty and gruff outpost against Carroll Gardens' gentrification, look no further than Wade's, plum in the middle of Smith St's food and retail strip. Hop onto a stool at the long wooden bar, order a cold beer, and chat to the regulars…unless there's a game on, that is. There's an open fire, darts and pool.

While Wade's is the kind of place in which Pabst Blue Ribbon seems appropriate, don't overlook the excellent draft beers.
