Bar Review: Mission Dolores
- Address: 249 4th Avenue (between President and Carroll Streets) – Park Slope
- Website: http://missiondoloresbar.com/blog
- What to get? Anything on draft, handmade margaritas. For food, go across the street and bring back tacos from Oaxaca.
Brought to you by the folks behind Smith Street’s Bar Great Harry, Mission Dolores has a relaxing atmosphere where a wide variety of people — from Brooklyn hipsters to Park Slope moms to suits, artists and everyone in between — meet up for craft beers that change out regularly. I am a fan of the selections from the brewers at Captain Lawrence (Westchester County) and Sixpoint (Red Hook).
On the occasions I’ve been at Mission Dolores, some people had their dogs along, much to the delight of their pooch-less drinking neighbors.
Given its convenient location close to the Atlantic/Pacific subway stop and decent outdoor seating, look for Mission Dolores to get busier and busier as the weather gets warmer and warmer.
