Gotham City Lounge: Talk Nerdy To Me


For a guys’ night out in New York with a geeky twist, head to Gotham City Lounge. One of the most unique bars in the city, this Bushwick, Brooklyn local is a great place to meet your friends for some refreshing drinks, lively conversation, and maybe a game or two of pool. Easily reached from Manhattan via the M train, you’ll know you’ve found the right place when you see the 3D mural of Superman coming out of the wall and flying right towards you. When you get inside, your inner nerd will jump for joy, as practically every inch of the bar is covered with comic book pages and memorabilia–even the tabletops feature pages from classic stories. Set all pretense and ideas of being cool aside for a moment and challenge each other to identify the specific title and issue that the tabletop pages came from, or where a certain character got his unique powers. A projector usually plays either sports or–you guessed it–classic superhero cartoons to complete the experience. As you all have a good stroll down memory lane, you might share the same observation: Who knew Saturday morning cartoons could be just as cool on a Saturday night?
