What: Pub/Dive Bar
Why: Thank the heavens for Sharlene. Too clean to be a dive bar, and too comfortable for an expensive glass of wine, Sharlene's is a welcome home for the neighborhood's after-hours drinkers. Shake off all pretension because it has no place here. A juke box, pinball machines, pub quizzes, board games, and enough space to fashion a dance floor if you think you're tipsy enough. Bring a date or bring a book. All your alter egos are welcome here.
Sharlene's, 353 Flatbush Avenue, (between Park and Sterling places); 347-350- 8225.
