DO NOT GO TO THIS BAR!! – The bartender in this place is so unbelievably horrible that I had to opened an account just to vent my udder disbelief.
This is how bad it is, after leaving that place, I went a nearby bar and proceeded to tell a real bartender what had just happened, only to have a stranger approach me to tell me that he had the same experience with the same guy.
Forget this place, it doesn't deserve you.
Wonderful Neighborhood Bar – I've been coming to this bar for a while and it never disappoints. I love to bring friends here for a drink because the cocktails are always consistent and fresh (the Tina Fey is my new favorite!) and it's just so cozy. I have made lots of friends here just by sitting at the bar chatting with the super friendly bartenders and other patrons. This is definitely a great after work bar with lots of regulars and a pretty decent happy hour. last summer there were bbq's in the back yard, I hope they do that again because there is nothing better than a grilled hot dog washed down with an ice cold Bramble!
Really, don't go to this bar – This place is horrible. I've never been treated so poorly by a bartender in my life. Completely ruined me and my friend's night. What you can expect at Sweet Ups is mean, condescending attitude and watery, overpriced drinks. That's it. With so many excellent bars in the neighborhood, I would strongly urge you to look elsewhere... anywhere.
Don't go to this bar – The owner hired me to host his Bingo night. I arrived at the appointed time. He arrived 20 minutes after that and told me that he decided to hire someone else THE PREVIOUS WEEK. He then told me that he forgot to call me.
The decor is blah: cheap furniture and poor lighting. The Sweet Ups house brand beer tastes like Natural Light. The exterior looks like a strip mall.
Brooklyn is big. There's gotta be something better.
Best Bar for a Date or Small Group of Friends – I've been coming here for years and I always have a great time. Atmosphere is chill and it's just a really great looking bar. The cozy booths and candle lit tables make this an ideal spot to enjoy a romantic moment and sip a cocktail (Pomegranate Margarita) with your sweetie.
Great neighborhood bar – Just moved into the neighborhood recently and poped in this bar for a drink. The bartender was really friendly and the people hanging out at the bar were cool too. We all got along and it made me feel right at home. Met other musicians, made some new friends in the neighborhood which is really cool. They had a bbq out back - can't beat that!
AGREED: WORST BAR IN BROOKLYN – RODENTS!!! And when I say "rodents" I mean awful, hateful, and pretentious bar owner and staff. Seriously, this place should really rethink their service tactics, ESPECIALLY because their always empty. The only perk is the exit door, where you'll be surely heading.
DO NOT GIVE THIS MAN YOUR BUSINESS – the owner of this bar, who also owns royal oak, is one of the worst human beings i have ever met. he is awful to his employees and to patrons of the bar.
there is a reason sweet ups is always empty. do not give this guy your business...especially considering there are so many alternatives to this bar! alternatives that do the drinks, music, and atmosphere WAY better!
worst bar owner in brooklyn – whatever you do..do not give this guy your money. he is belittling and patronizing to the community and guests of his bars.
Looking for Sweet Ups and a good place to drink it? Look no further – I haven't had much to drink from Sweet Ups other than Sweet Ups, but that's exactly why I go there. I like the vibe -- dark interior, friendly bartenders, comfy booths. The crowd is also chill and more diverse than the standard Williamsburg clones. (I've only been there on weekdays, so the weekend crowd could be a different story.) All in all, recommended as a good place to chill out with a beer, but not necessarily the place to go if you're looking for elaborate drinks.
