Barbés, Brooklyn


Named for a neighborhood in Northern Paris with a large North African population, Barbés is a laid-back, hipster hang in the south end of Park Slope in Brooklyn. Its small, intimate space and large selection of worldwide brews is a fine draw, but it's the back room that pulls in the crowds. Known for almost-nightly performance sessions, Barbés pulls from the local artist and music community to highlight great happenings in Brooklyn -- as well as drawing international performers. When I got there last week, most of the patrons were out front smoking -- it was a gorgeous summer night in New York after all. But shortly after ordering a beer at the bar, wonderful jazz starting wafting from the back. Friends of mine who live around the corner have a true gem in their neighborhood. On any given night, they can stumble in to catch music ranging from Hawaiian steel guitar and Moroccon oud music to a multi-instrumental duo and traditional Brasilian rhythms. If you ever find yourself in Brooklyn, hit Barbés -- it's literally down the hill from the 7th Avenue F stop. It won't disappoint.
