With dozens of Bay Ridge bars just steps from me, I log more hours commuting to and from Duff's than I do to work (true story)... It's like Drunkin' Donuts: It's worth the trip. Where else can you get top shelf drinks that aren't watered

Pros: Fun, casual, drama-free dive for drinking professionals (and those in training), outdoor smoking deck

Cons: Though you can smoke outside, wrecking hipsters is still frowned upon on the deck

Duffs always has something fun to look forward to, whether it's watching Warriors on a small tv in the corner while rockin out to the jukebox, spinning the wheel to find out if you won a free beer or a free hand job (for the bouncer) or

Pros: You can never predict what kind of a night you'll have - but you'll always wind up amongst friends

Cons: Sometimes I wish there was more room so everyone isn't on top of each other.

I've been stopping by Duff's for 2 years now, sometimes 4 times a week, sometimes once a month. I can't say nothing's changed from the beginning. In fact, it's only gotten better! Hotter bartenders (love ya LA and Tracy), JD has grown 2

Editorial from

New York's self-proclaimed metal mecca, Duff's is a loner in a part of Greenpoint still known primarily for its greasy takeout. The shadows of the elevated J-M-Z line make an authentic home for this dingy, red-lit basement bar swathed in…
