.

Famed as much for its large black pool at its entrance (what's hidden in there?), as it is for being in Williamsburg as long as the original cool kids, Galapagos gives off the vibe of being just that cool, and then some. Past the dark pool, there's yards of fabric hanging down, a stage that hosts bands or a weekly burlesque show, DJs spinning, patrons drinking, and occasionally go-go dancers on the bar. It's also been used as an art space and a spoken word performance venue. The drinks are actually decently priced. One can't help but think if this bar had been on the other side of the river, the prices would double. It's not exactly a laid-back sort of place, but it will always be an interesting night. And just think, someday you might be there when somebody finally goes splashing into the mysterious black pool and finds out exactly how deep it is.
