"I come here for the board,"
says Joe Vitale, 28, of Fort Greene, as he points to the tiny
blackboard of daily specials behind the bar at Rope, on Myrtle
Avenue. "All of the deals are awesome!"
Rope’s happy hour runs from 5:30 pm to 8 pm, boasting $1 off everything, every day. Pabst Blue Ribbon is just a buck all night long on Mondays. Yuengling is $3 - all the time. And perhaps the best deal at Rope is its free pizza every Tuesday at 8 pm.
But there are plenty of other reasons to go to Rope for a nightcap. Open since December, the rhythmic beats of alternative and punk rock music playing from the jukebox reflect the casual atmosphere. The dim spotlights bouncing off the deep-red exposed brick walls provide a warm and mellow feel.
"We get a real mix of people in here," says Rope bartender Adrianna Ault (pictured). "There are 20- and 30-somethings on certain days and Pratt students on others. Waiters and waitresses even make it their last stop before they head home after work."
With so much to choose from at the well-stocked bar to the selection of jukebox music, to the blackboard specials, customers leave Rope feeling satisfied.
Coming soon: owner Frank Moe will open a back patio when the warm weather kicks in.
Rope, at 415 Myrtle Ave., between Vanderbilt and Clinton avenues in Clinton Hill, is open daily at 5:30 pm. For more information, call (718) 522-2899.
