5petescandystoreThis place is busy 7 nights a week. And that’s no surprise, because there is always something going on, whether it be their Monday nite spelling bee (who knew hipsters could spell) or because there is some new folky Williamsburg starving trust fund talent playing the streetcar-like backroom. The bar was formerly a local luncheonette as well as, yes you guessed it, a candy store. In the summer the back patio gets filled to the rim with people wearing think-rimed fake glasses.

Live Music: Nightly, 8 p.m.

Spelling Bee: Every other Monday, 7:30 p.m.; prizes range from bar tabs to paninis

Sun-Wed, 5pm-2am; Thu-Sat, 5pm-4am

709 Lorimer St., nr. Richardson St.  Brooklyn, NY 11211  718-302-3770
