Reviews for The Gate


One of the better bars in Park Slope, the gate has a literary feel, a smarter crowd, and some real character. The beer selection is big and the place is dog-friendly. A nice place to hang out.

Not what it used to be... – In its pre-hype days, The Gate truly was one of the all time great neighborhood hangouts. Now, it has been over-run: a friendly bar scene has been pushed out by an aggressive, proprietory crowd of entitled 20-somethings (one unapologetically stepped on my dog). Conversation is impossible. The staff has become surly and although it still has a great selection of affordable beers, the taps are in need of a proper cleaning. I've clinged to hope that it would revert back, but after several disappointing visits, I have given up hope.

Simply the Best – At risk of ruining my favorite spot, I enthusiastically encourage everyone to experience this excellent bar. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable; the regulars are friendly and knowledgeable. Good place to meet people. Bring friends to sit in the cozy booths or out on the patio, or sit at the bar for Mets or soccer on the TV. Leave your attitude at home, or check it at the door. This place is unpretentious and real.

Brooklyn's Tribeca – Excellent anbiance. Affordable drinks. Beautiful people. This is a fabulous bar that allows one to sit back and ponder on the simplicity of life.

beer, friends, darts, dogs – and a nice outdoor patio. great place to relax after work or at 2 am. the crowd is the same, all friendly with no pretention. comfortable place to sip a beer, talk, shoot darts and listen to the juke. it's what makes this neighborhood bearable, really.

Perfect Neighborhood Place – Went here Friday night. We could not sit outside becuase of the rain, but the inside was fine. They have a great selection of beers on tap and a good size place. Even though it is not in my hood i will definitely go back.
