If and when the Zombie apocalypse happens I will be ready and waiting at the Zombie Hut on Smith Street in Brooklyn NYC. Just have the bartender light up the bar on fire and let the fun begin!
How can you not love a tiki hut bar centered right in Brooklyn? Cheap ass beer list with some quality offerings in the $4-$6 range. Super potent Frozen Zombie drinks loaded up with a lethal straw full of 151 booze. Flaming scorpion bowls for group imbibing. Kitschy Gilligan’s Island meets Brady Bunch tiki interior. Board games like Jenga and Sorry on hand to play. Friendly and fast bartenders. A flat screen and large projection screen showing the days games. Fireplace in the back room. Goofy island style decor with colorful hanging lamps, paintings, bamboo, and tiki masks. Terrific music selection was playing the nights I have been here, from 80’s rap and hip hop to classic rock and 90’s grunge.
Not much seating on the inside because the main draw to this place is the incredible backyard patio area with all kinds of benches and tables to sit at. Lit up with sparkling lights and some cool looking little surfboard shaped tables spread throughout this is a destination yard to party at for sure! With Spring and warmer temps finally here this is an awesome yard to party in.
Totally fun place with a chill vibe and unpretentious crowd. So worth it to take the trek out from the other parts of the city. Smith Street has a terrific selection of eclectic bars to choose from located in the Carroll Gardens section. I will certainly be back here to get my drink on this summer when I can bar hop all up and down the street, while stumbling home onto a subway in the wee hours of the night.
It usually seems as if I end up here at the end of a diet or training regimen each Spring. After cutting out booze for a while I happily down a lot of high-octane drinks at the Zombie. One of my favs is the Frozen Zombie. Oh yeah, those frozen zombies with straws loaded up with lethal 151 will surprise you every time. Along with many Jameson’s shots, and of course the flaming scorpion bowl, makes for an eventful if woozy evening. Cheap beer here too and a good quality selection I must say. Great times!
Potent drinks along with great rock tunes in a funky fun atmosphere and a terrific backyard makes the Zombie Hut one of my favorite bars in Brooklyn
