Fodor's Review

A retro feel, friendly crowd, and cheerful bartenders make this a perennial favorite, slightly off the Willamsburg beaten path. The back room, smaller than a subway car, hosts intimate music performances nightly. Hipsters come out for spelling bees, bingo, and the infamous quiz-off contest every Wednesday night. There's a short menu of sandwiches and cocktails but no actual candy. Pete's is also home to one of Brooklyn's preeminent reading series, held on alternate Thursday evenings.
