Historic bars & restaurants

Atlantic Avenue’s western end, near Henry Street, is graced with a number of eating and drinking establishments, some of which have been here since the mid-20th century and others that are more recent. Those in the former category were set up to serve the community of people who worked on the nearby waterfront, and some of them still have their original, historic neon signage. This mid-20th century neon signage on buildings dating to the mid-19th century makes for a dynamic juxtaposition. 110 Atlantic Avenue, for instance, still has its mid-19th century cast iron, star-shaped tie rods, but also has a distinctly Modern storefront. These buildings are located in the Cobble Hill Historic District.
