This is addressed to tgo o.:
The "racist" and "homophobic" staff you reference are most likely ex-civil servants--you know the people that have to deal with the dregs of humanity on a daily basis (blacks). Yes, blacks, you know, the people who commit all of the crimes, use all of the public taxpayer provided services, but pay not a dime in taxes? yeah, those people....
So please take your ignorant (yes, you are the ignorant one because you speak of things you know nothing about), santimonious liberals bs and shove it up your @ss.
Go across the street to the Double Windsor where you can espouse the virtues of a planned economy amongst other professional dog walkers and part time artists.
Racist and homophobic staff – Was ordering Styrofoam from a bartender (who was already throwing around homosexual slurs) and someone that appeared to be his manager said "hurry up and get the n****s order.
it's probably a GREAT place to go if you can't graduate from high school, are homophobic, racist, and just stupid in general.
Farrell's UPDATE – None of these other reviews is valid.. I visited Farrell's on 9/10/11 and the place has been entirely upgraded with a new bar, bathroom fixtures and hi-def TVs ... and bar chairs. Ignore all other posts and enjoy the company of friends at this venerable Brooklyn landmark in the Windsor Terrace nighborhood!
great dive bar – We discovered this gem leaving the theatre one night. Yes, it's a dive to some. When you are trying to escape the 'scene', I'd say it has 'character'.
Not only were the drinks cold and cheap, but huge too!
Farrell's is a Brooklyn Institution – Ya know, I've heard these hipster-yuppie transplants spew a variety of reasons why they hate Farrell's--e.g., they claim the patrons (i.e., natives) are a nuisance, people littering and being loud outside the bar, they've accused Farrell's of being racist (how hilarious is that, homogeneous hipster-yuppie scum accusing Brooklynites of being "racist"), and so on. Just the same slew of hypocritical BS we've come to expect from these worthless transplanted scumbags over the past few years.
Of course, when it all boils down, what the yupsters really hate about Farrell's is that it's authentic and unpretentious. But most of all, they hate the fact that it's unwilling to change for them. If there's one thing that the yupster inbreds hate as much as being around non-white people, it's working-class white people who aren't willing to buy into their BS.
A classic – The archtype Brooklyn neighborhood bar. Bottom line, the place, the people, and the product are unpretentious.
Best Beer EVER! – This bar is walking distance away from the Pavillion Movie Theather...while waiting for a movie to start we decided to go in and try one of their famous containers. Its basically tap beer....but im not going to lie its the best beer ever!!!!
I dont know what it is about the beer...but it beats anything I have ever tried.
You def must stop by this lil corner hole in the wall bar and try one of their containers...they are HUGE...think 7/11 BIG GULP size....and only $5.00!!!
Should be closed down! Arrogant Owner. Flat Beer! – In this day and age when every business under the sun is going out of business, why does Farrell's still exist?
The owner and staff are arrogant pigs!
The place is dirty!
As another reviewer mentioned previously, my "non white" friends were completely ignored and refused service. What year are we in?! How can this even be allowed?!
Do NOT support this place!!!!!
I'm not surprised there is a petition going around to get this place closed down. It can't happen soon enough!
If I could give it zero stars, I would!
The Best Bar in Brooklyn – Farrell's defines Brooklyn; it is the quintessential Brooklyn bar. I'll describe a typical Tuesday summer evening. You walk in around 6PM and the Bar is already full; not packed, but full. Everyone just got off work and this is the first place they went before they go home. The Yankees and Mets pre-games are on the TVs. An FDNY 'proby' is sipping a gigantic foam cup of the most delicious and fresh Budwesier (the only beer they have on tap) while listening to a lifelong NYPD officer talk about how he saw Sandy Koufax at Ebbets field when he was a kid. You buy your own giant foam Bud for $5 and strike up a conversation with someone. You don't have to worry about talking over music or the TVs because there is no Jukebox and the volume is never on the TVs; encouraging discourse over distraction. The games start and someone is calling the Yanks a bunch of prima donnas and someone else calls the Mets a bunch of wimps. The bartender converses with someone who has been coming there for 35 years. Someone complains about their job; someone else praises theirs. Someone yells about how A-Rod is a mook then claps when he hits a HR and laughs about it. A few people leave and a few more who work til 7 show up. You continue your conversation with a complete stranger as you order your second Bud and realize why you love coming to this place. You go home and eat dinner and watch the rest of the game before you go to sleep and get up to do it all again tomorrow.
Terrible – I went there with a non-white friend once. The bartender came up to me, took my order and totally ignored my friend. He made it pretty clear he didn't want him there, so we left and haven't been back. If you value diversity I would recommend skipping this place.
