Was ordering Styrofoam from a bartender (who was already throwing around homosexual slurs) and someone that appeared to be his manager said "hurry up and get the n****s order.

We discovered this gem leaving the theatre one night. Yes, it's a dive to some. When you are trying to escape the 'scene', I'd say it has 'character'.
Not only were the drinks cold and cheap, but huge too!

Pros: cheap, not pretentious

Ya know, I've heard these hipster-yuppie transplants spew a variety of reasons why they hate Farrell's--e.g., they claim the patrons (i.e., natives) are a nuisance, people littering and being loud outside the bar, they've accused Farrell's of being racist (how hilarious is that, homogeneous hipster-yuppie scum accusing Brooklynites of being "racist"), and so on. Just the same slew of hypocritical BS we've come to expect from these worthless transplanted scumbags over the past few years.

Of course, when it all boils down, what the yupsters really hate about Farrell's is that it's authentic and unpretentious. But most of all, they hate the fact that it's unwilling to change for them. If there's one thing that the yupster inbreds hate as much as being around non-white people, it's working-class white people who aren't willing to buy into their BS.

Pros: Best tap beer in the world.

Cons: None.

The archtype Brooklyn neighborhood bar. Bottom line, the place, the people, and the product are unpretentious.

This bar is walking distance away from the Pavillion Movie Theather...while waiting for a movie to start we decided to go in and try one of their famous containers. Its basically tap beer....but im not going to lie its the best beer ever!!!!
I dont know what it is about the beer...but it beats anything I have ever tried.
You def must stop by this lil corner hole in the wall bar and try one of their containers...they are HUGE...think 7/11 BIG GULP size....and only $5.00!!!

In this day and age when every business under the sun is going out of business, why does Farrell's still exist?

The owner and staff are arrogant pigs!

The place is dirty!

As another reviewer mentioned previously, my "non white" friends were completely ignored and refused service. What year are we in?! How can this even be allowed?!

Do NOT support this place!!!!!

I'm not surprised there is a petition going around to get this place closed down. It can't happen soon enough!

If I could give it zero stars, I would!

Farrell's defines Brooklyn; it is the quintessential Brooklyn bar. I'll describe a typical Tuesday summer evening. You walk in around 6PM and the Bar is already full; not packed, but full. Everyone just got off work and this is the first place they went before they go home. The Yankees and Mets pre-games are on the TVs. An FDNY 'proby' is sipping a gigantic foam cup of the most delicious and fresh Budwesier (the only beer they have on tap) while listening to a lifelong NYPD officer talk about how he saw Sandy Koufax at Ebbets field when he was a kid. You buy your own giant foam Bud for $5 and strike up a conversation with someone. You don't have to worry about talking over music or the TVs because there is no Jukebox and the volume is never on the TVs; encouraging discourse over distraction. The games start and someone is calling the Yanks a bunch of prima donnas and someone else calls the Mets a bunch of wimps. The bartender converses with someone who has been coming there for 35 years. Someone complains about their job; someone else praises theirs. Someone yells about how A-Rod is a mook then claps when he hits a HR and laughs about it. A few people leave and a few more who work til 7 show up. You continue your conversation with a complete stranger as you order your second Bud and realize why you love coming to this place. You go home and eat dinner and watch the rest of the game before you go to sleep and get up to do it all again tomorrow.

Pros: Cheap, delicious tap beer and the best atmosphere for baseball in Brooklyn

Cons: None

I went there with a non-white friend once. The bartender came up to me, took my order and totally ignored my friend. He made it pretty clear he didn't want him there, so we left and haven't been back. If you value diversity I would recommend skipping this place.

Not only has this legendary watering hole been the location for countless movies, it's rumored to be the largest retailer of Anheuser-Busch products on the entire eastern seaboard. Don't be put off by the packs of cops, firemen and sanitation workers who all call this place home. Possibly the greatest bar value in America. Stop by and pick up a "container."

GET OUT! No one asked you to move here. We don't want you here. The bar has been there before you were even born, let alone been living here. IF YOU DON"T LIKE IT GO AWAY!!!!! Go back to the mid-west.
You are guest here and always will be. No matter how long you yups are here you will never be Brooklyn.

Pros: Greatest Tap beer ever!

Cons: Yuppies complaining and trying to close down something that will mean more to BK then they every will.

Around 1982 I ran into some dudes (Tim & Rich )from Brooklyn while in Montreal, They drove back the next day and brought my friend and I with them. We went to Farrells bar and those guys went back to work ( New York Telephone) that week. My buddy and I would come back to Farrells bar every evening before we went back to Canada. Stood out on the sidewalk with the paper cups and shot the s**t with all kinds of Brooklyn people. Rich brought us to his house for dinner one evening to meet his mom and aunt . IThey laughed at me because there were steel garbage cans out and they had a chain on the top which I thought was to keep them from being stolen. We use bags, here. It seems that Farrells bar was the meeting place for those guys at New York Telephone and anyone looking for some good times.

We (my wife and I)are coming back to Brooklyn and will be stopping by Farells for sure.

Great bar. Haven't been there in twenty years. When I went they didn't like to serve women at the bar. From everyone's description it still sounds like the same place except the quart used to be paper and $1.00. Great place. The retard who doesn't like it can go eat some salmon puffs in Manhattan. Most of the guys I hung out with there are now lawyers or successful businessmen.

To the person who posted before me,

I would be willing to bet everything I own on the fact that:

a) I am much more intelligent than you are, and
b) I am much wealthier than you

As a lifelong patron of Farrell's,I am personally insulted by your post. The next time you call someone a lowlife, why don't you try doing it in person as opposed to over the internet? Something tells me you don't have the stones to do so.

Hey Farrellssucks you obviously are not from the neighborhood, here is a recommendation...LEAVE!!!!

I have been going to Farrells with my friends for over 10 years and plan on doing so for another 50. Don't worry you will be living in the new "hip" place in 5 years and pissing off another neighborhood with a history going back generations, that you will destroy.

I raise a container to all my Farrell's brothers and sisters

This bar's redeeming quality seems to be their enormous portions of cheap beer designed to attract the kind of people who drink to get drunk quick and act out all of their anti-social tendencies and aggressions caused by being at the bottom of both the socio-economic and intelligence scales.

Drinking outside is encouraged, as is screaming and yelling at all hours of the night, whatever day of the year.

If you want to hang around jobless societal leeches who don't have to get up in the morning to work, this is the bar for you. Also good if you like to mix your 32-ounce Bud with a few tokes on a joint under some child's bedroom window. The place also attracts cops and firefighters and, on this basis apparently thinks it's above the law. If you want to go and see what our Bravest and Finest are really like off duty, this place will make you wonder whether we really should be raising their salaries, rather than encouraging all of them to go live and work in New Jersey.

Cons: Its very existence

The reviewer below is nuts!! If you like beer.. I mean really like beer... This is the place for you. If you don't really like beer ... and never had a big taste for it... This place is for you. YOU WILL NEVER have a tap Bud like this ever again... unless you order another. and then another. Like they say.... If Budweiser is the King of beers --- Then Farrell's is the Palace!
The reviewer below... doesn't like anyplace thay have been out to. crazy right?

The people that reviewed this place obviously don't live near it. The crowd is disgusting, loud, and can be seen spilling out on to the sidewalk with their enormous styrofoam cups of beer. However, if you want a place that will give you a huge beer with a lid and straw so you can get behind the wheel of your car that's parked in front of the fire hydrant across the street and drive home, this is the place for you!!! I'd love to see it close.

I was visiting NY from California, staying in Manhattan...couldn't find a drink in the city for less than $6 a beer! I was told to try Farrell's in Brookly...loved it! A true neighborhood bar. I was treated beyond kindly. I'm a bartender...I was more comfortable in this bar than in the bar I work in here in OC!!!!!! To V.B. and his friends and family...you made my experience a memorable one and will remember you always. I will be back!

Forget Brooklyn, forget New York, Farrell's pours the best glass of tap beer anywhere in the US.The budweiser on tap is cold, crisp and creamy. I seriously have never had
a better, fresher beer anywhere. If your looking for ambiance, it ain't here but if a cold one is order...AH !....Farrell's is a home run !

It is as simple as this. Styrofoam cups filled with cheap Budweiser. Friendly American bartenders who grew up in the neighborhood. A real great blue collar feel....you know what you are getting. To me, what you get is fricking awesome. No hipsters and metros allowed...this is the real deal.

You go to Farrell's for 32 reasons: each one a cold ounce of golden, crisp Budweiser, served in a styrofoam cup the size of a kiddie pool. This place has no pretense, isn't especially comfortable, and I come here once a year: Yankees baseball in October! Filled with real fans, who would kill for the pinstripes, it is like being across the street from the stadium -- and your apartment. Yes it's a "real," and "authentic" Brooklyn hang out, but you will find that it certainly isn't novel. Expect to be stared at if you use polysyllabic words. For one night, drop the intellectual discourse, get hammered and then fight your friend on the sidewalk. You know you miss it.

Farrells Bar in Park Slope Brooklyn, is a neighborhood bar, where everyone knows your name. The bartenders are homegrown, as well as most of the patrons. The beer taps are the cleanest in the city and the beer is always cold and heady. You may move from the Slope, but you will always go back, to where everybody knows your name.

The old stand by. This is the real thing but please keep it to yourself. They don't need B&T people gawking at the blue collar local crowd and turning this place into a parody of itself. Besides, there's nothing special about this place other than the fact that it is, perhaps, one of the most standard, no nonsence bars in NYC.
