Heading to Barclays Center this weekend for the NBA All-Star games? Hit these nearby hot spots before or after the action.

Mullanes Bar and Grill

This Fort Greene sports bar plays all the big games on its nine big screens, which you can watch while chowing down on hearty bar food.

[71 Lafayette Ave. at S. Elliot Place in Fort Greene, (718) 797–7606,].

Frank’s Cocktail Lounge

A classic bar with an old-school vibe that will remind some fans of a Nets bar back in the team’s American Basketball Association era — think plush seating, sweet cocktails, and a thumping R&B soundtrack.

[660 Fulton S. between Fort Greene and S. Elliot places in Fort Greene, (718) 625–9339].

Brooklyn Academy of Music

If you don’t have time to fit in an arthouse film or an opera at this cultural institution’s main digs on Lafayette Avenue, head around the corner to its BAM Fisher building, where you can catch free live music most Friday and Saturday nights.

[321 Ashland Pl. between Lafayette Avenue and Hanson Place in Fort Greene, (718) 636–4100,].

Hank’s Saloon

A true dive bar, with the friendliest bartenders in town and raucous live music on weekends.

[46 Third Ave. at Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill,].

Saint Gambrinus Beer Shoppe

This newish bar and beer store offers a rotating line-up of 16 craft brews on tap and more than 250 in bottles. If the choice is overwhelming, you can also order a flight of four-ounce samples — which come served inexplicably in a muffin tin.

[533 Atlantic Ave. between Third and Fourth avenues in Boerum Hill, (347) 763–2261,].

Shake Shack

This new outpost of the beloved local burger empire has all your Shack favorites, plus a special dessert called Nothin’ But Nets, made with chocolate and vanilla frozen custard, marshmallow sauce, crispy crunchies, and chocolate sprinkles.

[170 Flatbush Ave. between Pacific Street and Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (347) 442–7721,].

Bark Hot Dogs

Grab a fancy frank from this casual but high-end hot dog joint, then wash it down with a local craft beer or a salted-caramel shake.

[474 Bergen St. between Fifth and Flatbush Avenues in Park Slope, (718) 789–1939,].

Morgan’s Brooklyn Barbecue

Authentic Texan barbecue, served by the pound from an alumni of the famed Franklin’s BBQ in Austin. If you are feeling brave, try the house specialty: fried turkey tails.

[267 Flatbush Ave. at Saint Marks Avenue in Prospect Heights, (718) 622–2224,].

Oh, and for all the past business owners and residents kicked out of the area from this unconstitutional taking, eminent domain abusing development, thanks for your neighborhood. Behind these smiles is a terrible injustice. Shame on all of us.

Great article for the local places around Barclays. Should have added the Hollow Nickel. It has a full bar, craft beer selection on tap and food. Its location makes it a popular hangout for Barclays goers and locals.
