O'Connor's - A bar that bypassed the "quaint" stage and simply headed into decrepitude, O'Connor's of Park Slope has nevertheless been consistently voted one of the best bars in Brooklyn. It's hard to define exactly where the bar's appeal lies. The drink prices are extremely modest ($2.50 for Bud, $3.50 for a Pilsener) in a neighborhood where Manhattan prices are becoming the norm. The jukebox is wildy eclectic and often updated. Spike, the bartender, is a friendly type who seems to actually enjoy his job, in contrast to many of the pretty vacant staff at many Manhattan nightspots. And, when it comes down to it, it's one of the few places in the Slope that still reminds one of the time when the neighborhood's two most important events were St. Patrick's Day and the day they gave the police exam.
