200 Flushing Avenue
The space was once home to JJ’s Navy Yard cocktail lounge, an infamous bar that served drinks to longshoremen and sailors on Flushing Avenue. What was once a dark watering hole is now a bright and airy cafe with an espresso tasting bar and fresh croissants. Marble used for the counters and bar was discovered behind drywall in the back room, and the smaller coffee tables are supported by old industrial coffee fly wheel bases. “Our company in general is about respecting some of the crazy history of Brooklyn while doing our best to look to its future,” says BRC’s Jim Munson.
