Williamsburg Bars: Bar Matchless

Williamsburg hipster bars - Bar Matchless
In recent years, we’ve seen the rise of many swanky new Williamsburg bars. But sometimes you just want a divey corner bar like Matchless. Set in a former auto body shop on the edge of McCarren park, this casual bar draws in a vibrant local crowd, partial to skinny jeans, tattoos, and beards. Some excellent local djs are on hand, setting the mood as you sip your PBR, eat good bar food (try the mac ‘n cheese), and play foosball. Live punk music shows are hosted in the back room. Come for the popular “Heavy Metal Karaoke” night.
