Met a group of friends at Soda Bar last night. It was my first visit and I really liked the place. From what I had heard from other friends, I expected it to be a dive, but it was anything but. It was a bit quiet when we arrived, but soon enough it was packed. A sign in the restroom said they will soon be open on Sat. and Sun at 12:30PM. While I didn't have anything to eat, a few of my friends ordered burgers and BLTs and seemed satisfied. I also like the location, being only a short walk from my Ft. Greene neighborhood. It's good to have another drinking option. My only complaint is that the beer selection is boring: all of the usual brands, such as Red Stripe, Guiness, Stella, and the ubiquitous Brooklyn Lager. Maybe with time they'll expand.
