I started to wonder if it was just another piece of Greenpoint gossip. Friday night, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see Blackout opened officially with a bang, celebrating the release of Oakazine’s 3rd issue.
Though you can’t tell from the street, Blackout is actually a spacious affair with a stretched out bar and a accommodating backyard. I couldn’t stick around too long because it was getting late and marathon training was looming over my head, but I ordered a pint and chatted with one of the bartenders for a while who really friendly and excited about the new watering hole.
I’m looking forward to going back and having a more thorough experience, but in the meantime, I advise all curious Greenpointers to check it out.
